‘For the Smithy’



‘For the Smithy’ is a book which illustrates numerous tools and machines found in the Blacksmith and Coachbuilding Shops of early years. This book had been printed in 1921 when McPherson’s, machinery and Tool Merchants at the time were still a viable business.

Filled with pictures of original illustrations and advertisements, ‘For the Smithy’ is like a catalogue of McPherson’s products. The illustrations are very detailed in both description and how to use the tool/implement. Additionally, it gives you some idea as to the value of the item in they’re heyday.

Great reference material for anyone working or researching in this field. Maybe you’ve found some obscure tool or machine you wish to identify, see what you can discover by reading through this book. Definitely worth taking a look!

The ‘Secrets Of Wheelwrighting’ publications, ‘Tyres’ and ‘Wooden Hub Wheels‘ may be of interest too.  ‘Tyres’ and it’s companion book ‘Timber Bending’ are going out of print and very few copies are available. Be sure not to miss out and buy the complete set now.
