Lathework book scan (aimed at beginners)
« on: October 25, 2016, 10:39:40 PM »
Hi,

I came across these 2 scans of a book aimed at beginners to lathework, they are very old but they may be of interest to newbies to this hobby.

Thanks  :)

I thought they were a decent read for beginners and possibly even a few more experience members

My brain read lathework as leather work go figure. Anyway that is the book they issued me at school and I still have a copy on my shelf including one in Spanish.

I learned on a South Bend Lathe and the one in my shop is still my favorite lathe.

I have an original 1944 copy in my collection, it is still a very good book.

I've added a shortcut to this thread, looks like I've found some good reading for a couple of nights.  :cheers:
