Projects and processes covered include: Mini Surface GaugePrecision SquareA Between-Centers Test BarHole GaugesDistance GaugesTailstock Die HoldersPrecision TapersScrew JackFaceplate WorkMill Drill SpindleA Milling Cutter ChuckThis beginner-friendly classic reference assumes no prior knowledge while working through the process of using a lathe from beginning to end. You'll advance through a series of practice projects that will teach you how to use the lathe and develop essential latheworking skills through practical application.Beginners are taken through all of the basic techniques needed to tackle a wide range of machining operations. A Getting Started section reviews the necessary tools and equipment for lathe machine operations and lathework.Twelve lathe turning projects provide the opportunity to develop confidence and become an accomplished home shop machinist. Each project is designed to develop and master essential lathe machine skills that you'll use again and again. All of the projects are extensively illustrated, and full working drawings accompany the text. The book advances from basic projects to higher levels of difficulty as the course progresses, taking you from a simple surface gauge-specially designed to provide basic turning-to a milling cutter chuck where precision and concentricity is vital. After completing this course, you will have amassed a wealth of practical skills and a range of useful workshop tools and equipment.Lathe owners with more advanced skills will also discover new techniques. The wide range of projects provides items that are both interesting to make and useful in the workshop, including a cylindrical square, a test bar for turning between centers, hole and distance gauges, tailstock die holders, precision tapers, screw jack, two wheel knurling tool, mill drill spindle and more. Prospective model engineers will discover valuable tips, and get useful pointers on things like screw cutting, face-plate attachment, the right way to get things centered up, and how to hold oddly dimensioned materials.With Metal Lathe for Home Machinists, you not only get a training manual on using the lathe, but also receive practical instruction on how to apply your new knowledge and skills!From the Back CoverUsing a project-based course, this classic reference provides a complete introduction to the popular craft of metalworking with a lathe.
