A couple of articles in Fine Woodworking Techniques 2, Newtown, CT: Taunton Press, 1980, which is a selection of articles from Fine Woodworking magazine, may be of particular interest to bookbinders. A very inexpensive dust collection system is described in detail in "Dust Collection System" by Doyle Johnson, pp. 22-24, using an industrial collector or vacuum and PVC pipe. An article on wooden screws and clamps in the same issue, "Wooden Clamps" by Richard Showalter, pp. 42-49, gives detailed information about their construction.

Note From the Column Editor

I am interested in compiling a list of those firms who will manufacture custom fit book boxes from measurements supplied by the client, including phase-type boxes/wrappers and clam-shell boxes. It would also be useful to know the type of materials used in their manufacture. If you can supply such boxes please contact the column editor (6339 HBLL, Brigham Young Univ. Library, Provo, UT 84602, 801/378-7654).
