"Jig And Fixture Design" 5th Edition

So I have uploaded a couple of books on jig and fixture design before, one older and a newer one from the 60's. Here is a recent publication more suited to todays machine set-ups and available hardware.

 "Jig And Fixture Design" 5th Edition, by Edward G. Hoffman was published in 2004, there is probably a 6th edition out now, but this edition is well into the computer age. I found this uploaded to the internet back in 2013, probably when the 6th edition came out, it is very well illustrated with many examples of modern jig and fixture designs. It was published by Delmar,Cengage Learning, a long time publisher of technical learning titles.

To download "Jigs And Fixture Design" 5th Edition go to my Books - Free Downloads page. # 68 - 8 MB - pdf, enjoy.

Jig And Fixture Design by The Institution Of Production Engineers

Here is an interesting little book on jig and fixture design. It was produced by the Institution Of Production Engineers in the UK in 1973. It is full of good information on accurate drilling and machining for repeatable production. The introduction says it best.





It's not a large book at 66 pages, but there is no shortage of examples, well illustrated and explained.

Jig And Fixture Design Manual- Henriksen

Muscles are feeling it today, so take it easy today. Here is a great book on jig and fixture design. published in 1973 by Industrial Press Inc., it covers the subject very well. There are many good older books on jig and fixture design, a much fewer number of newer books on the subject, CNC, CAD, and CAM have reduced there importance in production work. But for the advanced machinist and home hobbyist, including woodworking set-ups, there are many good ideas in this manual for producing repeat set-ups, lacking computerized machine control. Lots of good pictures and illustrations without to much math theory. The book is available in PDF on the Internet Archive site, but it is a much much larger file than this djvu file at 12.7 MB.
