Title: Lathework for Beginners
Author: Neil Wyatt
A lathe is one of the most capable and versatile of machine tools, but its very flexibility can make it challenging for beginners to get good results.
This book is written with the aim of helping beginners understand their machine and get the best from it while working safely. It covers everything from finding your way around the various controls and adjustments on the lathe to advanced techniques such as boring and screwcutting.
It also covers accessories, ideas and techniques that will be of interest to more experienced metalworkers as well as giving much general advice on running a small workshop.
Based around the SIEG SC4-510 lathe, an up-to-date and well featured machine, the author has taken care to keep the content as generic as possible to make it equally useful to the user of any modern bench lathe.
