This treatise on patternmaking deals, in its sixteen chapters, with two general and important subjects which include, first, the principles governing the production of castings by forming suitable molds from patterns, and, second, the actual construction of patterns and core-boxes of different types. Since patterns are used to reproduce castings, patternmakers must understand the principles of molding; for this reason, the application of various types of patterns and their relation to the work of the molder have been explained before considering the building of patterns. The types of patterns which illustrate different problems in the pattern shop and foundry have been carefully selected, in order to demonstrate every important variation liable to arise in practice. As the construction of wooden patterns involves considerable skill, especially in the art of joinery, the use of hand- and power-operated woodworking tools, and the particular classes of work for which they are adapted, are fully described and illustrated.
