This is a brand new original Basic Lathework for Home Machinists Book.
This book is part of our Workshop Machinists Series that we started carrying, because we found them helpful in our shop. We have the entire collection in our library and found that many of our customers found them useful too.
The Basic Lathework for Home Machinists book gives a great overview of lathes and the many methods for performing different operations. This book covers lathes from A-Z. It begins with terminology and describes the different parts of a lathe as well as the different types of lathes on the market. It has an entire chapter dedicated to power sources, and the different types of motors used on lathes, plus how to properly install a lathe. The book covers phase converters and inverters, and the advantages and disadvantages of each as well as lighting.
The Basic Lathework book goes into detail about different cutting tools and their uses. It explains chucks and faceplate and different methods of attaching different shaped work to your lathe. All aspects of tooling, both traditional and modern are covered in depth, as are all machining operations, including general machining, threading, taper turning, and boring.
The book explains the different tools used for making measurements and explains modern digital tooling and modifications that can be made to your lathe to make it easier to read measurements.
The Basic Lathework for Home Machinists book is a very comprehensive book that is perfect for beginners learning to become familiar with a metal lathe, and to those that are more advanced that want to improve their skills. I also recommend the Metal Lathe for Home Machinists book once you have become familiarized with your lathe. It is a more hands-on/project orientated book that covers a lot of useful skills.
