Getting information on Ornamental turning is not an easy task. It's true that there are books out there today that have been re-printed and I think it is reasonable to go out and buy or borrow them. But a great deal of information only exists in some books of great age, and they have not, nor will be re-printed with this in mind I shall attempt to provide information from the ones I have in my library for those of you who are interested.The books that are available and of great interest I will list separately.
