Many of the best metal finishing books are out of print and hard to find. Some are expensive but poorly described by the book sellers. Finishing.com will provide cover photos and book reviews of these works, and multiple source them so if one dealer is out, you'll have alternatives.

While this page is in progress, we will continue to refer you to some older pages at finishing.com for other books that have not yet been cataloged to this depth:
