Using the Engineer's Lathe in Clockmaking


From a well known writer on matters horological, this is an interesting and clear manual on using the 'engineer's lathe', as in Myford Series 7, Chester 7 x 12, and a Sherline mini-lathe, for making clock parts.

In fact, this book is largely aimed at the person considering buying such a lathe, so has a section on selecting the right one, and also chapters on Turning, Facing, Boring and Drilling, plus Screw Threads, before moving on to instruction on their use specifically in clockmaking.

The information is well put across in text, drawings and colour photographs, and will be useful to anyone approaching selecting a lathe for the first time, be it for making clocks, modelmaking and other items.
