Tabletop Machining: A Basic Approach to Making Small Parts on Miniature Machine Tools

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book details "real world" practices in machining and gives a good insight into the challenges faced by machinists. Too often good craftsmen are stopped from venturing forth because the only information available shows only the technically perfect way to do things rather than the simple, practical methods everyone really uses. This book should be required reading for all newly graduated engineers. For those wishing to design and build their first metal parts it is a perfect starting point. Naturally, Sherline tools are featured throughout in the examples, but the rules of machining apply to all types of equipment and sizes of projects.

Information is given on selecting materials; using a lathe and a mill; measuring and measurement tools; cutting tools; joining metal (welding and soldering); using accessories for threading, indexing and gear cutting; setting up a home shop; contests and information resources for machinists and much more. Plans and instructions for several simple projects are provided for beginning machinists. A gallery of photos of superb miniature projects will inspire you, while personal profiles of six different craftsmen show how others approach various aspects of metalworking. A history of Sherline tools is written from the point of view of giving you some guidance if you've ever thought of taking a product of your own to market. If you like tools and working on small, intricate projects, you should plan on adding this book to your library.
