A very basic hand tool manual like how to read a scale etc good foundational material many of us take for granted.


USAF care and use of hand tools and measuring tools.

Here is an old classic on metal working . Kind of forgot about it.
Originally published in IIRC 1556 by Georgius Agricola. Translated to English by Herbert Hoover and his wife. Published in 1912. the book was released into public domain by the Hoovers and republished by Dover press around 1950.
Great history on mining refining etc.
PDF etc here:

For those of you looking for better than average mini micro machine tools look here
http://www.proxxon.com/us/
the company was started in Germany in 1977 North American Headquarters in Hickory NC USA
they have mill lathes drill presses. hand held grinders etc.
you will have to look at other sites for prices but you get to see the full line of tools.

One of the ways to enter this hobby is to buy a pre a machined engine, and assemble it.
It is not always eassy to have the time money , skill vision and commitment to get started. have a working engine in hand can help fuel the fire.
so hear are the options I know of.

Tapmatic Corperation tapping question handbook . I do not expect a newby to go out and buy a tapping head and I am not promoting Tapmatic.
I am posting this link because it has lots of information about taps tapping and drill size section.And if you come across a deal on a tapping head you will know what it is and how to use it.

http://tapmatic.com/images/pdf/Tappi...tions%20HB.pdf
a tapping head is mostly a production tool but they are handy for tapping lots of holes

and another one
