5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Lathe Guide 19 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have not used a lathe since my apprentice days over 40 years ago so I needed a practical guide to remind me of all the techniques. This book is excellent, and don't be put off by the fact that it uses a particular lathe (Myford) in the illustrations. The particular make and model are not important as the book covers all the basic techniques of turning on any lathe, as well as very good chapters on lathe tools and accessories. The book is also up to date having been published in 2013. I can thoroughly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Beginner's Book 8 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very well written with excellent illustrations. It is aimed at beginners and in that respect it wouldn't disappoint but if you already have some experience of machining you won't get a lot from it. The sectionon choosing machinery for your workshop was very good. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars My father in law is chuffed 4 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My father in law is very pleased with this book. We bought it for his birthday and he has just got himself a lathe. He wouldn't be a beginner and he said this was exactly what he had been looking for. He is always grateful but this is one of those rare gifts for him that you know has really hit the mark.
