" The late, great Fred Dibnah often referred to his engineering hobbies as a bit of 'back-street mechanicing'. In this sense, I too would describe myself as a bit of a back-street mechanic in that I share an interest in engineering, mechanics, tools and equipment. For this reason, Stan Bray's hardback book on metalworking is an absolute dream.
It would be wrong to say that this book has a specialist audience - I am not a specialist in anything engineering related. I just like a bit of 'back-street mechanicing' and I love this title. "
