Here's what Amazon has to say about the book:
Written by an experienced engineer, this textbook covers all the basic techniques of model engineering, including: understanding engineering drawings; setting up a workshop; buying materials; marking out; sawing; filing; bending and forming metals; and drilling and boring. The author includes a review of the properties and characteristics of engineering materials and describes the hardening of carbon steel for cutting tools in the home workshop.
I've added it to my ridiculously long wish list, but am waiting to see it in person or get some first-hand feedback before I order it.
