What the publisher says,

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 accurate result.
In this book Tubal Cain discusses in his inimitable, practical style all aspects of the subject with the why and hows, including basic lathe alignment.
This is an excellent book written with the home machinist firmly in mind. It makes an excellent primer for anyone new to the lathe and also contains many usefull tips that will mean it is refered to time and again. The author clearly describes various methods of working and gives real examples of how to overcome problems that are likely to be encounterded by the amateur machinist.
