Format: Taschenbuch
After reading Bill Bryson's other works I was keen to read this. Although very well written and informative, it is not such an easy read as, shall we say, The Lost Continent; more a Walk Through a Sticky Gue than a Walk in the Woods. Many of Mr Bryson's earlier works tend towards the academic. His "Mother Tongue" is a valuable resource for all linguists and it is good to see that he is still capable of writing a useful book that is not merely entertaining.
The sections on metal turning and milling are especially good as is the chapter on gas nitriding systems. I haven't had such a laugh about carborundum since the days of Monty Python. I wish he had included more amusing anecdotes as in his other books, but the subject is not quite so suitable.
If you have read and enjoyed other Bryson's other books then I would certainly recommend this one. It may be a little technical, but nobody could accuse it of being shallow. Bill Bryson has proved he is much more than a travelogue writer with this unfortunately titled book. Perhaps it should be called "Steel Tools and How They Get that Way."

This is the book you need to start heat treating. (Ignore the childish reviews.) 21. April 2007
Von BusyGuy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Broschiert Verifizierter Kauf
Anyone who enjoys metalworking and is searching for introductory information on heat treating will find this book is a thing of beauty. To quote the preface, "This is not a book about metallurgy, but a book that describes in simple terms what happens to metal during heat treatment!" Right from the start ("Chapter 1. What is Steel" and "Chapter 2. Exactly What is Heat Treatment Doing?") the author explains step-by-step how to treat the major classes and most common alloys of tool steel. If you want to know the how and why of hardening, tempering and annealing at a level that will allow you to really do it yourself, look no further.

The book decodes the naming conventions, explains the differences between air, water and oil steels, offers insight into the effects of various alloys and provides full recipes for hardening, quenching and tempering the most used steels. He goes on to discuss the effects of subsequent operations such as grinding, welding and EDM. The back is filled with tables with data for all the steels you're ever likely to use.

I had tried a few projects prior to finding this book with mixed results, mostly because it's impossible to tell "straw" from "pale amber" without going through an old-fashioned apprenticeship. This book offers exact instructions, temperatures, soak schedules and tips that produce excellent results.

On finding the link to recommend this book to a friend, I was shocked to find that it had such a low reader rating (3/5 stars). Of the six other reviews here, three are the arrogant sarcasm of people who have so much free time that they read about other people's vacations. Regarding the fourth, if you are as well versed in 16th century texts on metallurgy as in the "cutting edge" of technology, then this book is not for you either.

Excellent Introduction to Heat Treating for the Hobbyist 5. November 2007
Von David Utidjian - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Broschiert
I bought this book about a year ago in order to understand the heat treating process of common tool steels. It is a well written set of "recipes" for the hobby and home shop machinist. It is not a canonical text on metallurgy.
So far I have used it to heat treat several projects that I used A2 (air hardening) tool steel in. I found the directions easy to follow and got the desired results without any mistakes.
As always, one should follow the manufacturers recommendations for a particular steel. The manufacturer specifies the "what". This book specifies the "how" (and some of the "why".)
I highly recommend this book.

Easy to understand 23. März 2013
Von Raymond A. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Broschiert Verifizierter Kauf
This book is easily understood by a large number of machinists that have a basic understanding of the English language and is very helpful in choosing a particular tool steel and offers a good selection of heat treating methods that are available.
More in depth information is available in the Machinery Handbook and books written in far more technical language, but for a large number of machinists this book will be adequate, offering a basic understanding of Tool Steels and Heat Treating methods. I showed my copy to a good friend that is a mechanical engineer and he is ordering a copy as well as he marveled at the simplicity of the temperature and heat treating graphs.

Excellent Primer for those interested in learning about hte subject of heat treatment 20. Dezember 2013
Von Hogstrom - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Broschiert Verifizierter Kauf
I ordered this book based on a recommendation from John Saunders (NYCCNC). I found the material to be organized in a very easy to consume format and the author's style was direct and concise. I am a home hobbyist and work on small projects. This book helped me understand the why and how of heat treatment as opposed to a "do this" approach.

Best summary is, this book taught me how to fish, and didn't just give me one which is how a lot of material on the net is organized.

Excellent "cookbook" style guide. 15. März 2007
Von Fuzzbean - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Broschiert Verifizierter Kauf
I don't know much about heat treatment myself, but if this Bill Bryson doesn't then he sure has me fooled. Following the step-by-step instructions in this book has got to be WAY better than guesswork with a torch and a pail of water, no matter what some snobs might think. The instructions appear detailed and probably more cautious and meticulous than I would actually be in practice. If anybody has better info than this, they ought to stop alluding mysteriously and write their own book to let us all in on the secret.

The only "fault" with the book I can see is it is a bit redundant for bedtime reading material, being organized for practical work.

This is an entirely different Bill Bryson from the guy who writes travel/history books. Don't let the joking, stupid, and/or over-puffed reviews here deter you from doing heat treatment a whole lot better than you are probably doing it now.
