This book is a wealth of knowledge left by a legendary man. If you had him as an instructor he worked you ragged. As I have worked with a few of his students, they have a high praise for his teaching methods & gave him full respect. Very very old school, you think this is good?, out came the pliers or tweezers & Archie would have them mumbling to them self doing it all over again until it was perfect. Rumor circulating is Archie's son is an engineer & the only engineer that the machinist would let touch any machine he wanted to use.
Anyway, the book contains information on how to use a lathe, make cutting tools for it, how to use gravers for turning, how to cut gears and their accessories. One very important note on this book is he illustrates how to service a watchmakers lathe & few books touch on this subject. The book is a compilation of articles Archie wrote for the watchmaking & jewelers trade & the classes he taught in his life. Excellent book! MJR 6 DELTA LS
