Thanks for the quick response!
When did you order or when did they sent out your book?

Ich frage mich ob deines das 'andere' war das am gleichen Tag verschickt wurde. Die Warterei macht mich wahnsinnig.

Gruß Mario

Hi Mario. I bought one a week ago, and I know it's going to take a long time to get here. Because of all the Christmas post . Post offices around the world are very busy.

I'm in Australia, I ordered two weeks ago, and have had my copy for a week now.

Great book!

I got mine yesterday...My wife is suprised that I'm on the computer instead of being "in the book" and ignoring her chores etc. Truth is ...it's a great bit of work and I want to absorb all the info .....slowly .....so it might take a while to leak out.
Thanks Cass.......very impressed

I've had this book for several days now, and I am amazed at the talent Mr. Nawrocki exhibits. His Portable English rolling machine that adjusts in many directions including provisions for vertical shaping, thereby often allowing shaping without a helper on the other end of the piece being shaped is brilliant !!!

However, I think a number of things need to be noted. English is not Mr. Nawrocki's native language. The text is difficult at times and often requires "reading between the lines" to get the import of the discussion at hand. The pictures often lack detail. And while there are a number of procedures and tools that are described in a comprehensible way, do not expect this book to give you a step by step explanation of the techniques or tools developed by Mr. Nawrocki. As has been mentioned somewhere before, this is not a book for beginners. Mr. Nawrocki has lots of heavy machinery, and many of the tools he invents or develops are dedicated to these machines.

Now, in spite of the above comments, there is here more thinking outside the box, than any single metalshaping (metal shaping) book I have read. I say buy it, but know it may not be what you expected.
