From the website [http://www.piehtoolco.com/en-us/dept_1110.html]
This is one of the very few manuals written by a recognized professional smith; in this case, one with over 50 years' experience, whose work appears in hundreds of restorations throughout the country. The book has long been unavailable and a collector's item. This eagerly awaited reprint completely reproduces the original edition. Here traditional smithing techniques are presented in clear, step-by-step text and photographs, enabling the reader to produce high-quality, hand-forged small ironwork. Included are detailed descriptions of workspace layout, specialized tools and techniques, whitesmithing, tool making and locksmithing. Mr. Streeter demonstrates not only how things are done, but also how others can best do them. There is special emphasis on the crafting of early high-quality, hand forged kitchen utensils, fireplace tools, locks, keys and decorative ironware: hinges, hasps, latches, bolts, hooks, springs and more. Students and professonal and semi-professional smiths will find this volume of great practical value as will collections of early American ironwork, owners of colonial houses, historians, preservationists and restorationists -- in fact, anyone interested in knowing how these early products were made.
