Workholding in the Lathe by Tubal Cain. A fundamental requirement of lathe operation for accuracy and safety is the ability to hold any workpiece securely and preferably repeatable on the machine. While few problems arise with straightforward work on a properly aligned lathe the variety of jobs undertaken by small workshops and model engineers is bound to give rise to occasions when how to hold work requires consideration. In this book Tubal Cain discusses all the practical aspects of the subject, with many photographs to illustrate specific points. Chapters are;
Between centers
Faceplate work
Chuckwork general
The universal or independent chuck
The self centering chuck
Unusual chucks
Collets
Work steadies
Lathe alignment

Softcover, 150mm x 210mm, 111 pages, b+w photos and drawings, brand new.
