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.
