Workbench Silencers: The Art of Improvised Designs

by George M. Hollenback

Here is a slew of new and interesting improvised silencer designs featuring innovative couplings.   In addition to variations on the tried-and-true aluminum can, the objects used include oil filters, PVC piping, plumbing devices, water sprinkler pieces and other unique materials.  For each design, Hollenback gives readers precise, step-by-step, photograph-accompanied instructions on how to assemble these odd objects into silencers in under 5 minutes, though he does remind readers that the possession and manufacturing of silencers is illegal without the proper licensing.  Do not try this at home.  (Actually, the very point of this book is to try these things at home, but make sure you get a license to do so first!  Do not use this book to break the law!)
