Description

Number of Pages: 252+12 dividers, printed 5.5″ x 8.5″

This is a reproduction, not a photocopy, of an original Atlas Craftsman-Sears Manual of Lathe Operation and Machinists Tables for older 10-inch Standard Change Gear Lathe. This manual covers Atlas lathes with standard gear change, lathes that do not have a pull knob to engage the power cross feed, copper-hardened babbitt and Timken bearings, and vertical motor drive systems. It covers everything shown in the index section listed below and more. This manual is printed in it’s original size 5.5″ x 8.5″.

 

I carry 6 different Manual of Lathe Operation and Machinists Tables books that cover the Atlas Craftsman-Sears Lathes made past 1937 in my store. See “Which manual works with my lathe” section below for explanations.

 

The Format

This manual formatted with in introduction and then is broken down into 12 sections which vary in pages. The 12 sections are as follows:

No.1 Lathe Care and Construction

No.2 Theory of Metal Cutting

No.3 Cutting Tools

No.4 The Machining of Various Metals

No.5 Holding the Work

No.6 Drilling and Boring

No.7 Thread Cutting

No.8 Lathe Attachments and Their Uses

No.9 Woodturning on the Metal Lathe

No.10 Machinist Tables

No.11 Index

No.12 Pages For Your Shop Notes

 

 

For your convenience, I have reprinted up six different original versions of this Manual of Lathe Operation book to cover the large span of lathes that Atlas produced from circa 1937 to the late 1900’s. Some of the manuals overlap on certain machines and parts, because Atlas didn’t change every machine and part at precise times, but I can help you match the appropriate manual with your machine. SEE “Which manual works with your lathe:” below.

 

I am aware that there are original versions of this manual sold on eBay, but I am not trying to compete with those manuals. By many request, this collection of manuals was reproduced for my Atlas Craftsman-Sears customers. I am trying to provide a complete collection of manuals after years of research and processing, scanning, and cleaning over 1,500 pages from these 6 different manuals. I hope my effort helps you with locating the appropriate manual for operating your size and vintage of lathe.

Which manual works with your lathe:

I have six different manuals in my store that cover different vintages/models and sizes of Atlas Craftsman-Sears lathes. Some of the manuals overlap on certain lathes and parts, because Atlas didn’t make changes to every machine and part at precise times. Below is an explanation of the six different manuals. If you have any questions about a manual, please let me know ray@ozarkwoodworker.com.

 

Please note: The pictures are given to show a general idea of the models covered in each manual. Please read the descriptions and characteristics of the lathes covered in each manual on the right.

Overview:

I have collected this information for many years and have found the information they contain to be priceless in using and setting up the machines properly. I believe this manual will be a valuable resource of knowledge that will provide a lot of helpful information that is often hard to find. My manuals are not photocopies. I maintain a high standard of quality in my reproductions. Most of the manuals I reproduce look better than their originals. I have professionally digitally edited every page, and removed stains, wrinkles and handwriting. All of the manuals are printed on thick white paper to withstand shop wear and tear.

We are a father and son team that operate a 5,000 sq/ft metal machine and wood shop. We've had to design our own machines (including CNC), and fixtures for our wood working. We make some of the smallest most precise inlay in the world. We maintain tolerances of 0.0005" in a 12" strip of wood, and we have duck calls with over 1,100 pieces of wood in them.
