5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Manual Feb. 6 2009
By John Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my older son, who is a professional welder and beginning machinist. He tells me that the manual provides much valuable information that has helped him in his work. It's one of the best books of its kind, with solid information presented in an understandable way.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential part of anyones hobbyists library Dec 25 2011
By hrdmetl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic primer and reference book for anyone who works with hand and power tools whether for wood or metal. In an easy to access format the author covers topics ranging from basic tool design and its use, to critical math skills used in any size shop. There is a chapter devoted to electrical trouble shooting of powered machines such as lathes and mills, to feeds and speeds used for various metals and bits. Questions about measuring objects are answered, clamping and securing work, cleaning and abrasives, and cutting tools. Each chapter has a review section with a test to aid in comprehension. This and the Machinery's Handbook are the two books I reach for to find the answers every time.
