£19.99

Product description

The cover is in very good condition, except for a touch of wear at corners and at the top of the spine. Internally the book is in very good condition.

A comprehensive and detailed presentation of manual machine tools and methods, machine shop know-how and practical shop tips. 'Machine Shop Essentials' is for a wide range of users including machinists, engineers, model makers, R&D lab technicians, instrument makers, prototype builders, product designers and gunsmiths who need to make prototypes, models or spare parts, or need to modify existing equipment. This book can also be used to gain a basic understanding of machine tools before moving on to computer-controlled machine tools. More than half the book is devoted to small and medium-sized lathes and milling machines, such as Levin jewellers' lathes, Sherline miniature lathes and mills, Clausing lathes, and Bridgeport-style vertical milling machines. It examines how these machines are constructed, their cutting tools and accessories and how to use them.
