Great revision-must have for the toolbox! 6 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Every shop should have this book, whether you're one person or a huge plant. Audel is a great name. I'm recommending this to all the guys on the floor. You can even use it if you're a handy homeowner-I do!

Excellent Manual 6 Feb. 2009
By John Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my older son, who is a professional welder and beginning machinist. He tells me that the manual provides much valuable information that has helped him in his work. It's one of the best books of its kind, with solid information presented in an understandable way.

An essential part of anyones hobbyists library 26 Dec. 2011
By hrdmetl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic primer and reference book for anyone who works with hand and power tools whether for wood or metal. In an easy to access format the author covers topics ranging from basic tool design and its use, to critical math skills used in any size shop. There is a chapter devoted to electrical trouble shooting of powered machines such as lathes and mills, to feeds and speeds used for various metals and bits. Questions about measuring objects are answered, clamping and securing work, cleaning and abrasives, and cutting tools. Each chapter has a review section with a test to aid in comprehension. This and the Machinery's Handbook are the two books I reach for to find the answers every time.
