Composite Materials: Step by Step Projects
Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned restorer, this guide will help you to create various items made out of composite materials. From composite design, to mold making, layup and finishing.
Wolfgang Publications Composite Materials: Step By Step Projects is the most comprehensive guide, that covers everything from building composite-specific tools, to a racing bike saddle, molds for a race car hood and nose cone, a carbon fiber coffee table leg, and the list goes on.
Saving time and money is what this DIY guide is all about and it is in stock and available at The Motor Bookstore. Chapters 1 and 2 cover how to make a vacuum-thermo forming machine or (pressure vessel), by the use of a simple off-the-shelf paint pressure tank, some air fittings and tubing.
The Composite Materials: Step By Step Projects guide has perfectly laid out illustrations, in color, with brief explanations on all of them and some times as much as 6 illustrations per page in this 144 page manual, making this one of the most thorough DIY manuals ever produced.
Author John Wanberg has what he calls the Composite Garage Series Handbooks #1, 2 and 3, which enhances the Step By Step projects handbook, while covering much more elaborate projects.
To summarize, The Composite Materials manual is a must have!! With so many composite material options, this book is the bible of fabrication, with more illustrations than any other manual out there, and ideas that make it exciting to do, and you will find yourself, not only enjoying it, but also loving the end results.
