    DescriptionWritten by an experienced engineer, this new primer textbook covers all the basic techniques of model engineering: understanding engineering drawings; setting up a workshop; buying materials; marking out; sawing; filing; bending & forming metals; drilling & boring holes. The book includes a review of the properties and characteristics of engineering materials and describes the hardening of carbon steel for cutting tools in the home workshop. Sources of information for model engineers are described together with the principal types of activity and common modelling scales. Points for consideration when buying a lathe are covered, plus how it should be set up and operated. Also included is information on the preparation and sharpening of lathe tools and their use for the basic turning processes. A major chapter is dedicated to the adaptation of the lathe for milling and boring, and the use of the commonest types of milling cutter. Profusely illustrated with line drawings and photographs, this is a comprehensive guide aimed at students and practical people with little experience of working with metal and wishing to embark on this fascinating hobby.
