    This is a fascinating book, written in 1893, and published by The Astragal Press (1-879335-37-9). The most complicated joint depicted is a 4-way pipe, made from two sides, crimped and brazed. Other joints show gusset pieces inserted. If this was really made from a single piece of copper, it is exceptional, a masterwork
