De Cristoforo's Complete Book of POWER TOOLS
DE CRISTOFORO'S COMPLETE BOOK OF POWER TOOLS BOTH STATIONARY AND PORTABLE. R. J. De Cristoforo, Popular Science Publishing, New York, 1972.
The author has gathered all his woodworking techniques for his fellow woodworkers. He describes each tool, its uses, characteristics, adjustments, operation, and tells how to select the best type for the craftsman's needs.
In the gradual development from basic to advanced techniques for each tool, the reader will not only learn, for example, the correct methods of crosscutting, ripping, mitering and compound cutting on the table saw, but original methods for cutting tapers, round and square tenons, circles, spirals, and all kinds of joints. With his guidance, the drill press becomes a router, shaper, sander, goover - and many other tools. There are equally original ideas for every power tool in the book.
