The Milling Machine, and Accessories, Choosing and Using, Number 49.  ISBN 978 185486 266 2

 

This book deals with choosing and using the machine and all the accessories that can be used with it. These cover the range from the very simple and essential items such as workpiece clamps through to the much more complex items such as dividing heads, These only required if the type of work being undertaken demands them. The amount of detail is sufficient for all but the most complex applications being those that only a few workshops will ever see the need to use. Typically, milling spiral flutes using a Universal Dividing Head.

 

The book is largely a “Learn by Reading” book and is intended to complement my book “Milling a Complete Course” which takes a hands-on approach. It does though have one workshop project, this being a simple attachment for the off hand grinder and is for sharpening the end cutting edges of an end mill.  The book is, in full colour.
