Transcriber's Note:If the pdf version of the book is viewed using facing pages with even numbered pages on the left, you will see aclose approximation of the original book. Notations of the form "(1,650) 2" appear at the bottomof some pages; they are probably printer's references for assembling to book.The text only version is of limited use because of themany figures used. I recommend the pdf or rtf versions.Some of the projects should be approached with caresince they involve corrosive or explosive chemicals,electricity and steam boilers.
Do not use lead solder, particularly on cooking utensils.
