Great Copper Book Review by Virginia Gory

If you are working in base metals like the rest of us that are not able to afford the silver prices, this is a great book for your library. The author is familiar with copper and lets you in on soldering copper and working with it to the finishing. I learned new tricks for copper and the projects are unique, from working with washers to wire, to copper tubing. Fantastic book!
