Lathework a Complete Course, number 34.
Whilst the title implies that this is a book for the novice turner it will be of
interest also for those more able. The book takes the novice through to one being
quite capable by the means of 12 projects, typically from a simple surface gauge,
specially designed to provide basic turning, to a milling cutter chuck where precision
and concentricity is vital.
The more advanced lathe owner will surely find some new techniques to add to his
or her abilities, but also the various projects will provide items that are both
interesting to make and ultimately useful in the workshop. These include , A Mini
surface gauge, Cylindrical square, Between centres test bar, Hole gauges, Distance
gauges, Tailstock die holders, Precision tapers, Screw jack, Two wheel knurling tool,
Mill drill spindle and a Milling Cutter Chuck.
