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 WWW.STEAMMECHANIC.NET MODEL ENGINEERING DISCUSSION LIST.
