Machine Tool Practices, Tenth Edition, provides a richly illustrated, practical, and understandable treatment of machine tool technology and related subjects, including measurement and tools, reading drawings, mechanical hardware, hand tools, metallurgy, and the essentials of computer numerical control. The text's teaching and learning package includes an Instructor's Manual, PowerPoint slides, and computerized testing.

Teaching and Learning Experience:

  • Provides a richly illustrated treatment of basic machine tool technology and related subjects.
  • The definitive text to successfully train computer numerical controllers and conventional machine operators, general machinists, and tool and die makers.
  • Lends itself well to classes that take a combined lecture/laboratory approach, as well as those using it in a self-paced environment.
