List of pdf books on the site;




Just a thought on old books. It is my opinion, that you only have to get one, idea or inkling or a, ah that’s how they did that, from a book to make it worth while having looked over, or owning, that book. Doesn’t matter the age of the book, in fact, the older the better in a lot of cases. (and considering the blacksmithing craft, and crafty blacksmiths, and their knowledge base to print, have been around for how long?)


So have a flick through, you might find something useful or something to do….


If you have a pdf book for the site and want it on here, let me know.
