Synopsis:

This book, one of three in a cluster of machinists books in the Audel line, will undergo reorganization and update. While much of the current text and illustration materials are not overly dated, as the basics of a machine shop such as blueprint reading, layout and measurement have not changed that much over the years, new types of machines and methods have been introduced for different applications. New review questions will be added. The existing books have a good reputation in the industry, but have been out of stock for at least five years. Many tinkers, robot makers, mechanics and repair persons as well as home owners keep a copy of the 1983 editions, dog-eared by now, at their workbench or in their tool box. Readers and re-sellers have contacted the authors requesting an updated version of this fundamentals book.
