This concise introduction to the lathe provides detailed coverage of this versatile machine and how it is used to perform a wide variety of metalworking operations. Special emphasis is placed on lathe components, accessories, and operating procedures, including basic machine setup and routine maintenance. Cutting dynamics and parameters are explained in clear, easy to comprehend language, and a wide range of cutting tools, toolholders, and workholding devices are examined in detail. This is the ideal introductory text for the novice or machinist-in-training. Review questions follow each chapter.

"Missing the filling"


Good for a student if they have an instructor showing the practical side of lathework. If you already have a basic knowledge of the lathe, then you will only gain with the tables that are in the book. As for the maintenance part of the title, common sense has more going for it than this book can deliver.
