It is a collection of articles from the Delta tool company's newsletter ( "Delta-grams" ) that they used to publish durning the company's heyday.
The original illustrations still look good! The real photos have that 1940' to 50's "future" ethos that remind me of old sci-fi film posters. There are a few plans in this book for "modern" furniture; by "modern" I mean "easy-to-build" cheap furniture that only a retro fan would love.
There are photos and some plans for "accessories" of course, as the tittle suggests. However, I should point out that most of these are now well known. At least, they are all well-known to anyone with experience in woodworking. If you are looking for new information on woodworking jigs and fixtures, this is not the best choice.
None of these plans are very detailed. They have basic dimensions and a few "cut-lists" ... that's all. The plans all require some adjustment for your particular machinery, and it is doubtful that you'd have the exact models of machines touted herein. Even in the old days, these plans would have been considered a "general guideline" NOT detailed plans. They are intended to make woodworking look simple; "simple" of course IF you have the latest Delta machinery of that day.
As a nostalgic look back at the glory days of a great American tool company, I like it. It's funky and fun.
As a book for beginners who need jigs and fixtures, there are much better modern books.
As a reference for experienced woodworkers, it is of little value.
