I would have to agree with some other reviews that this book is not for the beginner. Having just acquired a Myford Super 7, I was hoping for somthing to help me get to grips with the basics. This book starts out using terminology which is undefined and gets increasingly complicated. The project based idea is a good one, it's just a pity the introduction doesn't start with the basics. "The Amateur's Lathe" by Sparey is much better.

Needed reminding after not using a lathe for over 30 years. Very useful.

The perfect accompaniment to any lathework project. It teaches the basics very well and safety is primary. Highly recommended.

This is a Great little book for anyone wanting to use a lathe, and has little knowledge. Everything is explained well, and helps the novice do most things. I have shown it to a friend and he has one as well now. Well recommended. Mike B. Manchester.

Love these books as a source of idea's. There are lots of pictures in black and white, the trouble with that is that some of the pictures are not as clear as I would have liked. Great value.
