Description: The Mini-lathe has become the best-selling item of machinery in the hobby engineering market - often purchased as a first step by beginners to the hobby.

It explains everything from setting up and 'tuning' the machine for best performance to using accessories and carrying out tasks. The Mini-Lathe covers: Safety, Preparing the lathe, Tooling materials & geometry, Tooling up, Getting started, Gear cover, Head stock dividing attachment, Modifications for milling, Improving rigidity, Making a part off too, Guided centre punch, filing rest, use of steadies and chuck depth stop, Toolpost powered spindle, saw table and grinding rest, DRO handwheels, taper roller bearings.

Review: A good introduction to mini lathes but doesn't to my mind really address step 1, How to actually select the size / manufacturer or even the supplier or agent. Reading information in the forums indicates that there are many points to bear in mind and also quite a few deficiencies that this book doesn't really cover. Lathe selection would be a good topic to cover in another book.

    Description: The centre-lathe is by far the most versatile machine tool in the workshop, but as soon as you depart from plain turning between centres, the question arises 'how to hold the work'. This book explains the methods and techniques required. A fundamental requirement of lathe operation, for accuracy and safety, is the ability to hold any workpiece securely and, preferably, repeatedly on the machine. While few problems arise with straightforward work on a properly aligned lathe, the variety of jobs undertaken by small workshops and model engineers is bound to give rise to occasions when how to hold work requires consideration. When great accuracy is essential, working methods and lathe set-up are vital for an acceptable result. In this book Tubal Cain discusses in his inimitable, practical style all aspects of the subject with the whys and hows, including basic lathe alignment.

    Description: Ian Bradley's classic guide to using Myford 7 series metalworking lathes in the home workshop was first published in 1973. The author revised the work in the 1980s to include the ML7, Super 7 and ML7-R lathes, so that the contents of the book are as valuable to readers who have the latest type of lathe, as well as those who possess the earlier machines. This book is intended to be a workshop companion rather than simply a work of reference. It deals with the use of the lathe and the many items of equipment that have been provided for it.

    Description: One of the most useful functions of a modern lathe is its ability to cut any form of external or internal thread of any thread form, pitch or diameter within the overall capacity of the machine. Detailed information of a practical nature is, however, not easy to find - a situation that this book does much to rectify. The author was a very experienced engineer with the capability of converting factual analyses into easily understood forms. His own expertise and the standards to which he worked are evident in his writing, and in addition he is also quite at home with both imperial and metric measures having considerable experience in the conversions required when working in partially metricated areas. This book is not only an invaluable treatise on lathe screwcutting but is also a useful demonstration of working in both imperial and metric standards.
