Manual of First and Second Fixing Carpentry, Third Edition
This book was written because there is a need for trade books with a strong practical bias, using a DIY step-by-step approach – and not because there was any desire to add yet another book to the long list of carpentry books already on the market. Although many of these do their authors credit, the bias is mainly from a technical viewpoint with wide general coverage and I believe there is a potential market for books (manuals) that deal with the sequence and tech-niques of performing the various, unmixed specialisms of the trade. Such is the aim of this book, to present a practical guide through the fi rst two of these subjects, amazon kindle namely fi rst-fi xing and second-fi xing carpentry. These defi nitions mean that any work required to be done before plastering takes place – such as roofi ng and fl oor joisting – is referred to as fi rst-fi xing carpen-try; second-fi xing carpentry, therefore, refers to any work that takes place after plastering – such as fi xing skirting boards, architraves and door-hanging. Most carpenters cover both areas of this work, although some specialize in either one or the other.
To clarify the mix up between carpentry and joinery, items of joinery – such as staircases and wooden windows – are manufactured in workshops and factories and should be regarded as a separate specialism. The book, hopefully, will be of interest to many people, but it was written primarily for craft appren-tices (a rare breed in this present-day economy),Epub train-ees and building students, established trades-people seeking to reinforce certain weak or sketchy areas in their knowledge and, as works of reference, the book may also be of value to vocational teachers, lecturers and instructors. Finally, the sequential, detailed treat-ment of the work should appeal to the keen DIY enthusiast.
Reading Construction Drawings
1.1 INTRODUCTION Construction drawings are necessary in most spheres of the building industry, as being the best means of conveying detailed and often complex information from the designer to all those concerned with the job. Building tradespeople, especially carpenters and joiners, should be familiar with the basic principles involved in understanding and reading drawings cor-rectly. Mistakes on either side – in design or interpre-tation of the design – can be costly,Kindle as drawings form a legal part of the contract between architect/client and builder. This applies even on small jobs, where only goodwill may suffer; for this reason, if a non-contractual drawing or sketch is supplied, it should be kept for a period of time after completion of the job, in case any queries should arise. 1.1.1 Retention of Drawings or Sketches A simple sketch supplied by a client in good faith to a builder or joinery shop for the production of a replacement casement-type window, is shown in Figure 1.1(a) . The client’s mistake in measuring between plastered reveals is illustrated in Figure 1.1(b) .pdf Retention of the sketch protects the fi rm from the possibility of the client’s wrongful accusation. Another important rule is to study the whole drawing carefully and be reasonably familiar with the details before starting work. The details given in this chapter are based on the recommendations laid down by the British Standards Institution, in their latest available publications entitled Construction drawing practice , BS 1192: Part 1: 1984, and BS 1192: Part 3: 1987. BS 1192: Part 5: 1990, which is not referred to here, is a guide for the structuring of computer graphic information.
