With the model and amateur engineer in mind, this is a guide to making light milling or grinding spindles with a small lathe. Spindles come in many shapes and sizes, depending on their use and included here are descriptions of the design, construction and use of a variety of types (from 19.05 - 57.15mm/0.75 - 2.25 inch) for grinding, milling and drilling. The emphasis is on spindles which are easy to make and have as few parts as possible - all but one use sealed ball bearings. The author is a designer, machinist and woodworker whose interest in clock making led him to design and build the spindles in the book. Also included is a light gear cutting frame for clock makers.
