Terrific Book!~

I recently took a silversmithing class and this book has been very helpful regarding the tools needed and their uses. This is a wonderful how to book and is easy to understand!!

While McCreight's book is good, it is not as good as Oppi Untracht's 1968 text entitled 'Metal Techniques for Craftsmen.' Indeed, I suspect that much of McCreight's material came either from Untracht's book or its sources. That said, it's size is handy. It's a convenient reference for use in the shop.


A must have!

This book is truly one of the books you must have if you do any metal smithing. This is the one book that I go to time and time again when I'm not quite sure what I need to do. The instructions are clear and concise and the pictures are very helpful. This is my second copy! My old one was literallly falling apart from use. There is a vast amount of useful information in this book. This is the one book that I highly reccomend to students.


For the everyday person

This is a great book, it is written in plain english and is a resource for people who are new to working with metal of all kinds
