The author has succeeded in giving a complete course of instruction embracing almost every process that can be accomplished on the highly adaptable small lathe.

The author explains how to make the best use of limited equipment and shows how the ordinary 3 1/2" lathe can be made to perform a wide range of operations normally considered to be the province of a whole workshop full of machinery
Photographs and drawings provide step by step instructions on a wide range of topics which will interest all engineers - from the apprentice to the retited businessman.
Suitable for the owner of any medium size or small lathe, this book covers almost every process that can be accomplished on lathes such as the Myford, Boxford, harrison, Raglan etc.
