Instruction Manual on LATHE CHUCKS & COLLETS

Number of Pages: 23

This is one section of one of the best how to books I have ever seen. I have been collecting manuals and books for years now, and I feel that this book has presented the information that people need to know in a very direct and concise manner with great diagrams.


This book was put together for instructors during WWII, and it was a combined effort of some of the major lathe producing companies like South Bend, LeBlond & Regal, Brown & Sharpe and others. So the information in this book is universal and can be applied to any metal lathe.


This auction is for one section of the larger book. I broke it down so one could choose which sections they want, and the pages run continuously through the five sections. If you would like to buy all of them, I will give you a special discount.


So if you are wanting a book to learn more about how to set up and use a lathe; refresh your lathe skills; or just need information to check back to, these are a great set of direct and to the point books that will greatly help you.

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 do more than sell manuals.


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.


We've collected various machines and accumulated lots of manuals over the years, and we like to help keep these old machines running. Some of the manuals on this site are from machines in our shop like the Rockwell 10" unisaw, Rockwell uniplane, Walker Turner 1100 16" band saw, etc..
