This is a reproduction, not a photocopy, of an original Craftsman Wood Lathe Handbook revised 1954. This is a complete handbook covering all the branches of wood lathe operations in the home workshop with over 150 hundred photographic illustrations and line drawings. This book goes into more detail on operations and set ups than the owner manuals do. It even includes information on how properly chuck the lathe for different procedures. The information in this book is good for a variety of different vintages and brands of wood lathes.
One reason that I’ve reprinted some of these older books is because they have a lot of information with illustrations that get directly to the point.
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; they are then comb bound with heavy cover pages so they lie flat on the workbench.
