Description

This is a course of instruction which embraces almost every process that can be accomplished with the small lathe, including information on tools, accessories and costs. The amateur's problems are tackled in a practical manner, showing how the model engineer or small industrial user can perform a variety of operations usually requiring a whole workshop of machinery.

Author Biography

Lawrence Sparey was that somewhat rare combination - a professional engineer with what he himself called 'an amateur's outlook' which allowed him to maintain his appreciation of the difficulties of the average workshop owner with his small lathe. He was also a pioneer of model aeroplane internal combustion engines for home construction in Britain of the 1940s. This book represents the accumulated engineering wisdom of a previous generation.
