CNC Programming Principles and Applications by Mike Mattson
There seem to be more and more quality books coming to the market as of late. I recently received a complimetary copy of this book and was pleasantly surprised by its' accuracy, layout, and compact format. Mr. Mattson deserves credit for including very accurate programs and realistic fixturing and manufacturing processes.
This book is the best value for the CNC student's money today.

I use only this book in my CNC mill and lathe classes, though CNC texts by Mike Lynch or Valentino and Goldenberg are… Read more

This is an adequate book for very basic level CNC knowledge or for people with only elementary knowledge of the English language. It does an acceptable job of explaining some basic NC concepts and the… Read more
