One of the most useful functions of a modern lathe is its ability to cut any form of external or internal thread of any thread form, pitch or diameter within the overall capacity of the machine. Detailed information of a practical nature is, however, not easy to find - a situation that this book does much to rectify. The author was a very experienced engineer with the capability of converting factual analyses into easily understood forms. His own expertise and the standards to which he worked are evident in his writing, and in addition he is also quite at home with both imperial and metric measures having considerable experience in the conversions required when working in partially metricated areas. This book is not only an invaluable treatise on lathe screwcutting but is also a useful demonstration of working in both imperial and metric standards.
Screw-cutting in the Lathe Paperback edition by Martin Cleeve
Introductory Notes. Principles of Lathe Screwcutting. Gearing an English Leadscrew for Metric Threads. lathes with Metric Leadscrews. Problems and Analysis of Repeat Pick-Up. Multiple-Start Threads. Single Point Lathe Threading Tools. Practical Aspects of Lathe Screwcutting. Practical Thread Sizing Measurement. List of Tables.
'Martin Cleeve' was the pen name of Kenneth C. Hart, a respected contributor for some thirty years to Model Engineer magazine. His painstaking, perfectionist approach to high-quality, accurate work (which so clearly comes through in this book as in all his other writing) led him to design and describe many original lathe accessories which have been made and regularly used in hundreds of amateur and professional workshops.
This book follows on from the same author's introduction to the Mini-Lathe (Workshop Practice Series No. 43) and presents a series of projects which are intended to extend the versatility of this little machine and specific tools such as the radius turning attachment, the tailstock and the dividing head.
A practical guide to running three-phase equipment on single-phase electricity supplies. Often, model engineers buy industrial workshop equipment which usually require a three-phase electricity supply. Although ready-built phase converters are available, they can often cost as much or even more than the equipment purchased.
An introduction to the fascinating world of horology for the complete beginner. This book explains the terminology of the clockmaker and provides general details of clock construction including layout of wheels and escarpments, all of which are fully described and illustrated.
This title, which replaced the very popular Electroplating for the Amateur, will be of value to model engineers and small workshops wishing to plate with any of the customary metals using simple equipment.
The principles underlying radial work on a metalworking lathe are explained in depth in this book. It covers the methods that can be adopted: from simple applications without specialised equipment to the use of a semi-universal dividing head and a rotary table.
This book assumes no previous experience and using the medium of twelve lathe turning projects will lead prospective model engineers through all of the basic techniques needed to tackle ambitious projects. All of the projects are extensively illustrated and full working drawings accompany the text.
A comprehensive introduction to the milling machine, assuming no previous experience, by one of Model Engineers' Workshop magazine's leading authorities. Eight projects lead prospective model engineers through all of the techniques involved; each project is extensively illustrated with step-by-step photographs and workshop drawings.
Contains a comprehensive range of mathematical data which is required in the metalworking workshop and by those designing a wide range of engineered items, tools and machines. This book provides in a single concise volume that is otherwise only available by reference to many different sources.
