This book is an ideal text for students in trade and technical schools and in college engineering courses. It fills a gap in existing publications in the field by assuming no previous knowledge of shop techniques and requiring no apprenticeship in which to learn to handle tools by imitating others. The book explains why each tool is used in a certain manner and describes the basic principles of design and construction. The unique illustrations serve to emphasize important details that are often lost in the usual photograph or drawing. Hobbyists and others engaged in home study will find the book invaluable. The well-rounded coverage of each subject and the author's easily readable and readily understandable style, together with the profusion of illustrations, provide all the essential knowledge of machine tools for the student who wishes to pursue machine shop trades as well as a reliable path to mechanical comprehension for those who find frequent occasion to use shop tools.

  • This is a reprint of a 1950s vintage machine shop text. As a self-taught (and just getting a good start in the shop) hobby machinist, I found that this book does a good job of explaining tools, machines, and shop techniques and procedures. I wish that I had gotten a copy years ago, as it would have helped a lot in figuring out just what equipment and accessories I could use for my projects. Most other similar books that I have looked at assume you already know more than I do, or that you have a teacher or experience mentor at your elbow. Recommended!

  • While this is an old text it remains a classic and very useful to today's modern machinist as the basics never change. In fact with all of the CNC work being done more and more people are missing the basics that this book delivers and explains so well. Besides it is just fun to sit and read in the evening when you are too lazy to make chips.

  • I have other books that are better in some ways (more in-depth) but OK I guess.
