You get eleven chapters: history and development of the lathe, putting in place and leveling the lathe, operation of the lathe, lathe tools and their application, tips on how to take accurate measurements, plain turning (work between centers), chuck work; taper turning and boring, drilling reaming and tapping, cutting screw threads, and special classes of labor. The entire basics are here form sharpening drills to producing “super-finished” turned bearings, grinding valves, and turning a couple of screw threads.
