Publisher Comments:

If you're just starting out in the world of metal working, you have to have this. If you know some aspects of machining metal, but realize that there are big holes in your knowledge, then, again, this is for you.

Chapters include shop machinery, drawings and specifications, handwork related to machining, the lathe, turning work between centers, work supported chiefly by the headstock, outside machining, inside machining, threads and thread cutting, drills and drilling, the drill press, the shaper, the miller, the grinder, holding the workpiece: a summary, other shop machines, useful tools and fixtures, gears and gear cutting, cutting speeds and finish, accuracy in machining assembling machined parts, processing and finishing metal, materials, and more.

You get brief descriptions of tools and how they work. I've never used a taper attachment for the lathe, but now I have a general idea how it functions. The explanation is clearly written, easy to read and understand, and provides sufficient detail. It sounds a lot like Dave Gingery teachings. Most of this you will read once or twice. Once you have an idea of what the topic is all about you dig into more-complex texts. When you do, you'll find the "heavier" books are easier to understand.

You can build a cleaner for chuck threads, faceplate clamp, faceplate angle bracket, draw-in collet attachment, spindle-nose cap, collet closer, collet, micrometer carriage stop, external-internal threading tool, heavy-duty boring bar, heavy-duty boring-tool holder centering indicator, dividing fixture, lathe boring table, cross-feed chuck and collet holder, spherical turning attachment, cutaway tailstock center, drill-countersink holder, tailstock die holder, tailstock stover attachment, taper-shank drill driver, perforating die set, simple forming die set, drill-angle tester, fly cutter for the drill press, and auxiliary table for the drill press.
