This book provides the detailed knowledge you need to successfully choose, install, and operate a milling machine in your home workshop. Heavily illustrated with color photographs and diagrams, understand which accessories are essential and which can be postponed until your activity demands it. The usage of each machine and accessory is explained in detail for the vast majority of applications in an active shop. Discover options for holding the many diverse shapes and sizes of work pieces that will inevitably surface during your machine's life. This critical task is by far the most important part of learning to use the machine. The Milling Machine will arm you with decision-making skills on which method is best for any application -- whether to use a vice or an angle plate, mount the piece directly onto the worktable, or even produce a fixture specifically for the task. With the work piece set up and ready for machining, this book will show you the correct ways to cut metal and maintain all your milling tools.
