This review is from: Screw-cutting in the Lathe (Workshop Practice) (Paperback)
A very comprehensive treatise going far beyond the needs of this particular beginner. I enjoyed the detailed maths dealing with metric/imperial conversion & calculating change gear selection depending on leadscrew type; very useful if you have a metric lathe but restore imperial machinery, or vice-versa. Chapters dealing with general principles, tools & practicalities are excellent, explaining in detail the relative merits of different techniques. The mathematical complexity in more advanced work was daunting to say the least but if you have a passion for - or a particularly difficult problem with - screw-cutting, this is for you.
