The Home Machinist's Handbook - Woodworking
by Doug Briney

This introductory book on the use of a small lathe and a small mill was written by a mechanical engineer (who operates a clock repair service in his spare time) for readers who have neither metalworking experience nor an engineering background.

The first few chapters describe how to read engineering diagrams, how to use measuring tools such as dial calipers, micrometers and dial indicators, and what types of hand and bench tools are used, such as pin punches, vises, taps and dies.

The author uses a Sherline micro lathe and milling machine for demonstration, but the lathe operations such as facing, turning, filing, parting, reaming, boring and threading will apply to the Taig micro lathe.

Also discussed are types of metals, properties and heat treating. The last 50 pages cover 10 projects (e.g., center punch, brass mallet, brass cannon) using a lathe and milling machine.

Softcover, 8" x 9", 275 pages, 1983.
