Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


South Bend Lathe published small booklets ranging from eight to twenty-four pages or more, each booklet dedicated to a particular topic. Here are eight of the most popular 1936 booklets reprinted in a single book.
In one volume you get:
  • How to Grind Valves, Sharpen Reamers and Cutters in the Motor Service Machine Shop
  • How to True Brake Drums of Automobiles, Buses, and Trucks
  • How to Test and True Differentials
  • How to Bore Rebabbitted Connecting Rods
  • How to Make Bushings
  • How to Finish Pistons
  • How to Grind Lathe Cutter Bits
  • How to Cut Screw Threads in the Lathe
    Obviously, South Bend was very much interested in promoting its products, and they knew the best way to do that was to show people how useful a lathe could be. These booklets are of exactly the same style of How to Run a Lathe being heavily illustrated with photographics and drawings. The section on cutting screw threads is, obviously, very similar to the chapter in the edition of Run a Lathe, but certainly not identical.
