Tool & Cutter Sharpening (Ref: WPS38)

Tool & Cutter Sharpening

Sharpening workshop tools is probably the most diverse of all workshop activities and the one that is least understood by the majority of workshop owners. This is not unreasonable in view of the wide range of equipment suggested for the task, ranging from the complex (typically an industrial tool and cutter grinder) through to the humble off hand grinder. This book illustrates how most sharpening tasks can be carried out using an off hand grinder and a few simply made accessories to a standard comparable to that achieved using much more sophisticated equipment. Follow the instructions in this book and working with blunt tools will be a thing of the past! "The Workshop Practice Series" is the world's leading range of books for model engineers and mechanical crafts: some of the books have been in print for 50 years; most of them still reprint every 18 months. It is fully illustrated step-by-step with photographs and technical drawings.

Bearings  (Ref: WPS40)

Bearings

Every working model includes bearings, often a large number of them. This practical book describes the wide and diverse range of bearings found in the large variety of different types of models built in home workshops. It reviews the choice of bearings materials, the type of bearing to use for each particular application and highlights the differences between home-made and off-the-shelf bearings. It also considers the installation and care of bearings. Furthermore, it also covers several full-size applications undertaken by model engineers, such as clock making and machine tool maintenance, which also call for some knowledge of bearings. It is now forty years since Ian Bradley and Norman Hallows published the slim MAP volume Bearing Design and Fitting and much has changed in the bearing field since that date. This book provides a welcome addition to the Workshop Practice Series of books and will be welcomed by all model engineers, whatever their area of interest.

Book 45. Basic Lathework - Workshop Practice Series

This book deals with all aspects of the lathe covering the selection of a machine
and its construction, including modern types of machine as well the more
traditional models. All aspects of tooling, both traditional and modern are covered
in depth, as are all machining operations including general machining, taper
turning, threading and boring.


The author pays particular attention to modern applications such as the
conversion of power supplies from single to three phase and the use of digital
equipment to improve efficiency. It is suitable for use by the beginner with no
knowledge at all of lathe work and to those who are more advanced and wish to
improve their skills.

Three Phase Conversion Book WPS47 (Ref: WPS47)

Three Phase Conversion Book WPS47

Three-Phase Conversion - The Workshop Practice Series

A practical guide to running three-phase equipment on single-phase electricity supplies. Often, model engineers buy industrial workshop equipment, such as lathes, drilling machines and milling machines 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. This book provides an invaluable source of practical guidance on how anyone can find out the type of electrical equipment they have, and how to convert it to allow it to run on a single-phase supply.
The book provides exact calculations, step-by-step instructions with photographs and diagrams and covers electricity supplies in the UK, North America, Europe and the rest of the world. Finally, it also advises on which equipment cannot be converted at all.
Graham Astbury is a Chartered Engineer, who has recently retired after a career providing expert advice on process safety in the chemical industry

Mini Lathe Tools and Projects

David Fenner
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. In some cases, additional machining capacity will be required, which some readers may find at their local model engineering club.
The book covers the Mark 2 Mini-Lathe, and specific tools such as the radius turning attachment, the tailstock and the dividing head, and includes techniques such as taper turning and knurling Whilst specifically written for the Mini-Lathe, some of the projects in this book can equally be applied to other small model engineering lathes and in many cases the concepts can be scaled to suit other equipment.

The Milling Machine (Ref: WPS49)

The Milling Machine

Harold Hall

This book deals with the process of choosing and using a milling machine and its accessories. In addition to the machine itself, the accessories include the cutters, cutter chucks, workpiece clamps, vices, angle plates, dividing heads, rotary tables, boring heads and other minor items. The content is divided into three main sections. Firstly, it describes what machines and accessories are available and covering each one in detail. The author explains which are essential and which can be obtained when the workshop activity eventually demands one. There are also suggestions on how the equipment chosen should be installed. The usage of each machine and accessory is covered for all but their most complex uses. Typically, using the rotary table and the dividing head are both described to a detail sufficient for the majority of uses that will surface in the home workshop. The third section deals with the actual machining process, covering the choice of the cutter for the task in hand, the speeds to use and how the direction of the feed relative to the cutter rotation is vitally important. A less-understood feature of milling, back cutting, is also explained.
