About the Author

Alex Weiss has a PhD in mechanical engineering from University College London and has been a practicing model engineer for the last twenty years. He has already produced three earlier volumes in the Workshop Practice Series is also a contributor to Model Engineer magazine.


This book is number 46 in the ever expanding WORKSHOP PRACTICE SERIES. The series now covers virtually every aspect of machine shop practice, and lucky is the workshop with a complete set. This latest book by Alex Weiss covers in varying detail virtually all the currently available lathes and milling machines to be found in the home workshop, or indeed the smaller professional shop. This is a very up to date book with chapters on tooling, fixtures, combo's and that item becoming increasingly popular, the CNC machine. Once the preserve of top end professional workshops these machines are now making serious inroads into the home workshop. It is quite possible that in 20 years you will not be able to buy a manual lathe. There seems to be reluctance in some model engineering circles to eschew CNC machines but very few people still use treadle operated lathes !! The range of machines covered is staggering, including over 100 Far East lathes alone and almost as many milling machines. Second hand machines are also mentioned such as the much loved Tom Senior. If you are considering a new workshop or replacing an old machine this book is surely a must.' Colin Usher, Engineering in Miniature.
