Machine Shop Methods 1950


Dave Gingery, whose books you will find throughout this, and the foundry sections, reckoned this was the best beginner’s machine work book he had seen, and it certainly is good. The majority of the chapters are concerned with using the lathe, but others cover the drilling machine, the shaper, the milling machine and the grinder. And there are other chapters on holding the workpiece, useful tools and fixtures - full drawings for a large number of items, gears and gear cutting, cutting speed and finish, accuracy and materials. The illustrations (all drawings) are very clear and the text is concise and to the point - Lorus J. Milne really knew his onions. 376 very heavily illustrated pages. Paperback.
