Roger,
There are four of them on the list, parts one through four, I don't have 
part 5 and 6 (yet!)
I think you mean the ones on the so called "Rose engines".
If I find them, I will let you know, but I can't make any promises
I know, that it is volume five, that is all about ornamental turning, 
but I am afraid, that I can't help you *for now*!
It would be great, if I could get my hands on the the two volumes that 
are missing, as that would make the series complete.
I will try.
The fact, that part five is reprinted, by several book vendors, might 
have something to do with the fact, that a copyright free pdf is hard to 
come by...
At this moment, there are 93 volumes for download, and there is a lot 
more to come.
To be honest, I don't know by heart, what is in there that would have 
ornamental turning as a subject, as my pdf collection is just to big,
and it is not a subject, that is of a particular interest to me.
But I will have a nose around, and if there are any books on ornamental 
turning in there, I will make it my priority to upload them!
I am usually pretty good at finding these things, so don't give up hope yet!

On a different note, you might be interested in knowing, that 10 or so 
books by Paul N Hasluck will be uploaded soon

Cheers and thanks for your support
Patrick
