2016 Reprint of the 1910 edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Photographs meticulously reproduced. Still classic work on metal spinning contains two essays, Tuells' "Principles of Metal Spinning," and Painter's "Tools and Methods Used in Metal Spinning." Metal spinning, also known as spin forming or spinning or metal turning most commonly, is a metalworking process by which a disc or tube of metal is rotated at high speed and formed into an axially symmetric part. Spinning can be performed by hand or by a CNC lathe. The pamphlet provides general, but useful guidelines for spindle speeds, frequency of annealing, and general methods. There is also considerable detail on various methods of making separable forms. The beginner will find the pamphlet well worth the small cost - a good introduction to the art of spinning. The experienced spinner may find the historical context a novel diversion. Spinning has always been an obscure art, and this pamphlet is as good an introduction as any.
