Mini-Lathe for Home Machinists

By David Fenner

The versatile and inexpensive mini-lathe has become the best-selling item of machinery in the hobby engineering market, and is often purchased as a first step by beginners. These miniature versions of industrial metalworking lathes are a good choice for model engineers or anyone else who is interested in metalworking and has a need to fabricate small precision parts.

Mini-Lathe for Home Machinists presents a complete course on using and improving the new generation of budget lathes. It's a perfect choice for beginners as well as for those who are experienced with the lathe, but have never tried the mini-lathe. The skills and information that the reader will pick up from this book can be applied again and again to future projects on the machine.

Based on the author's experience using a mini-lathe in his own workshop, this book covers all of the basics, from safety and materials to setting up and tuning the machine for best performance. It includes detailed instructions for making useful components like shafts, bushings, spindles, part-off tools, DRO handwheels and a radius turning attachment. Readers will learn how to use accessories and perform a full range of essential tasks, as well as how to adjust the mini-lathe for use as a milling machine.

The Artful Bodger’s Iron Casting Waste Oil Furnace

By Colin Peck

A well written and illustrated 84 page book consisting of information, drawings and pictures explaining how to construct an inexpensive and  useful waste oil fired furnace.  The information contained in the book comes from earlier experiences building and using Gingery’s charcoal furnace plus years of experimenting with  other metal casting equipment.  Such knowledge is incorporated within the pages to give the reader inside knowledge and suggestions on what to do and what not to do when building such a furnace.  Many useful hints and suggestions are scattered about within the pages.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

All illustrations were generated while the author constructed his hot oil fired furnace.

Also there are suggestions on casting cast crucibles for melting brass, aluminum and bronze, in order to keep contaminants from infiltrating the melt.



The furnace, when constructed, has the capacity to melt cast and of course aluminum bronze and brass. 

Mr. Peck’s web site contains many more hints and ideas concerning casting and is well worth a visit.
Cost is  14.95  /  $23.49 U.S.D plus postage.

The Working Shop


By Gerry Needs

A new engineering machinists pocket book containing speeds and feeds formula has just become available on the market, called “The Working Shop”.

This booklet contains speed formula which is then easily calculated (in your head) for CNC and other types of machines. In the new era of CNC, machinists can now more easily use these speeds and feeds to set and run, with the knowledge that their components will be produced as efficiently as possible.

Based upon 35 years of hands on experience in job shop environments around Europe, Gerry Neads, has produced a hand reference work for the professional needing a fast resource for calculations.

This pocket reference book can save companies money and the machinist much hardship. The payback cost of $20.00 (including postage) is soon repaid in the first few set ups.

The speed formula is designed for lathes, mills, drills, taps and knurling operations. Also:

No matter if you are a professional, apprentice or amateur machinist, this book will serve you well.
