The Milling Machine for Home Machinistsby Harold Hall
Synopses & Reviews
This book provides the detailed knowledge you need to successfully choose, install, and operate a milling machine in your home workshop. Lavishly illustrated with color photographs and diagrams, it will help you to understand which accessories are essential, and which can be postponed until your activity demands it. The usage of each machine and accessory is explained in detail for the vast majority of applications in an active shop.
This book deals with the process of choosing and using a milling machine and its accessories. In addition to the machine itself, the accessories include the cutters, cutter chucks, work piece clamps, vices, angle plates, dividing heads, rotary tables, boring heads and other minor items.
It describes what machines and accessories are available, which are essential and which can be obtained when the workshop activity eventually demands one. The usage of each machine and accessory is described in sufficient detail for the vast majority of uses that will surface in the home workshop.
The actual machining process and a less-understood feature of milling, back cutting, are explained in detail. The subject of sharpening milling tools is briefly covered and a simple off hand grinder fixture that will bring new life to a used end mill is described.
