Product description

The milling machine is now a common piece of equipment in the home workshop, and Stan Bray's latest model engineering guide shows how to get the most from it. Chapters deal with types of machine and cutter, correct milling operations, both straightforward and more unorthodox, and suggested practice projects, together with information on safety, the cutting properties of metals, cutting fluids, and a handy "fault-finder" table.
