As a comprehensive and easy-to-use hands-on source, Basic Machining Reference Handbook is intended to serve as a memory jog for the experienced, as well as a reference for programmers and others who will not do the machining but do need to know exactly what's involved in performing a given machining step, a series of steps, or a complete job. Remaining true to its original approach, the new second edition continues to present the principles of basic machining, while summarizing the major considerations involved. Logically organized, this time-tested reference starts with those machining steps that most often begin the machining process and moves through the basic machining operations. It is a must-have resource for experienced machinists; programmers; tooling, design and production engineers; and students.

* Includes expanded chapters on numerical control and computerized operations.

* Contains additional speeds and feeds tables, general troubleshooting concepts, and a basic review of relevant computer terms and applications.

* Emphasizes the hands-on concept of developing and refining skills, along with knowledge of metals and machining processes by means of application.

* Offers tips on checking material hardness, ensuring that temperature variations won't put parts out of tolerance.

* Reviews and presents metals and heat-treating with emphasis on aspects most important to machining.

* Presents checklists containing considerations involved, the steps and functions required, and the most appropriate sequences.

* Includes a checklist of stock and the steps involved, along with a review of both basic machining steps and the axes and other factors pertinent to N/C control and operation needed to complete the program.
