The centre-lathe is by far probably the most versatile machine tool within the workshop, but as soon as you depart from plain turning between centres, the question arises ‘the right way to hold the work’. This book explains the methods and techniques required. A fundamental requirement of lathe operation, for accuracy and safety, is the ability to hold any workpiece securely and, preferably, again and again at the machine. Whilst few problems arise with straightforward work on a properly aligned lathe, the number of jobs undertaken by small workshops and model engineers is bound to give rise to occasions when the right way to hold work requires consideration. When great accuracy is very important, working methods and lathe set-up are essential for an acceptable result. On this book Tubal Cain discusses in his inimitable, practical style all aspects of the subject with the whys and hows, including basic lathe alignment.
