Included in the files:
- All 86 plates from Denis Diderot's L'art du Tourneur (1775)
- Selected plates from Charles Plumier's D'art de Tourner (1706)
- All the turning-related plates from from Joseph Moxon's Mechanick Exercises (1678)
- Dozens of other illustrations I have collected, as well as notes that I have made on the history of turning from various primary and secondary sources.
- Simple design plans for the two lathes I have built and experimented with.
Mac and Windows compatable.
