Machine Shop Know-How: The Tips & Techniques of Master Machinists Cover


Synopses & Reviews


If you’ve ever wished you could take all of the knowledge of a master machinist and pour it directly into your brain, here is your chance. Machine Show Know-How proves that there are no secrets in the machine shop, just information that is rarely documented—until now. This book focuses on manually controlled machine tools, but moves beyond the basics to present the problem-solving insights, shop shortcuts, and clever tips and tricks that normally take years of first-hand shop experience to learn.

This book is for industrial model and scientific instrument makers, R&D lab technicians, home shop machinists, prototype designers, custom motorcycle and car builders, gunsmiths, teachers, students, and anyone who has a fundamental knowledge of machine shop practice and wants to advance to the next level.

The book begins where Machine Shop Essentials: Q&A left off. There is only enough overlap between the two books to provide continuity and context.

Using an easy to understand chapter format, Machine Shop Know-How presents hundreds of imaginative shop solutions devised by top industry professionals, including how to really organize your shop; how to truly master your lathe, milling machine, bandsaws and grinders; how to fabricate ingenious shop-made tools and modify existing ones; how to make clever and useful jigs and fixtures; and how to use the valuable skill-building lessons learned in this book to solve your own shop problems. There are over 100 pages of tips and techniques.
