"Getting The Most Out Of Your Lathe"

So last week I completed the upload of  "Wood Turning Visualized". Here is a popular little book that focuses more on the machine, in addition to wood turning you will also find instruction for metal turning, and metal spinning on the lathe. "Getting The Most Out Of Your Lathe" is another Delta publication, in keeping with the rest of Delta's "Getting The Most Out Of Your ..." series.

This is a short book, but like the rest of the books in this series , it is packed with information. Metal spinning is one of those activities that has been called a "lost art". Modern methods have largely made metal spinning obsolete, but it is still used to produce one of's and specialty work. For the home hobbyist, this is an interesting use of the lathe, that will let you produce shapes that are normally produced on large expensive press equipment. 

Lindsey published an interesting little book on metal spinning that I will scan and upload next week.

So to download "Getting The Most Out Of Your Lathe" go to my Books - Free Downloads page. # 58 - 14 MB - pdf.
