Machine Shop Training Course
Machine Shop Training Course, Fifth Edition
Franklin D Jones
Published January, 1964
Softound ( While supplies last, volume 1 may be hardbound)
Packed with facts and rules that students can put to use in the shop and toolroom. Together, these books provide an outstanding treatise on machine shop practice. No classroom or workshop where apprentices are being trained can afford to be without these valuable combination text and reference guides.
Covers fundamental principles; methods of adjusting and using different types of machine tools - with typical examples of:
* work-measuring instruments and gauges
* cutting screw threads by different processes
* thread grinding
* gear cutting
* precision toolmaking methods
* typical shop problems with solutions
* miscellaneous facts relating to the art of machine construction and much, much more

Machine Tool Technology Basics
By Steve Krar, Arthur Gill, Peter Smid, and Paul Wanner|
416 pages. Softcover.
includes a link to a free CAD/CAM program.
Written by three experienced educators and practitioners, this book is sure to be a useful tool for anyone needing to learn about today's machine tool trade.
Organized in three sections, it begins with basic metal-removal operations of conventional machines, progresses to CNC machines, and finishes with CAD/CAM.
Comes with a CAD/CAM software program for download, making it possible to design a part on a computer, generate machining codes (G&M), and simulate the tool path to check for programming errors.
Begins each section with a Section Opener collage and includes an introduction, learning objectives, key terms summary, and knowledge review questions.
Highlights safety precautions throughout the text.
Includes the latest direct ironmaking and direct steelmaking processes and minimills.
Introduces conventional/programmable lathes, vertical mills, and surface grinders, demonstrating the steps from conventional to CNC machines.
Provides CAD/CAM examples for the lathe and mill.
Contains a comprehensive machine tool glossary.
Offers an overview of Virtual Reality NC.
Contains a careers section that highlights opportunities in metalworking and manufacturing.
