The Bob Marvel Book of 1911 Pistolsmithing in Recommended Resources Posted August 19, 2020 16 hours ago, ltdmstr said: my top recommendation is to find a good editor. My second recommendation is that you make the book comprehensive . I'd also devote some time to shop safety tool selection, machining practices, fixtures, etc. Great advice! Luckily, I have an editor lined up. My wife has her Master's in Education, and she has a gift for finding mistakes. The book will be comprehensive. I will put everything I can think of in the book. Discussing shop safety isn't something I had considered until you mentioned it. I do think it's a good idea. I will be discussing tools, machining and the fixtures we use as well as where to get them or how to make them. Thank you.
