Completely rev. and updated. p. cm. Includes index. THE LATHE IS ONE OF THE OLDEST complex tools known to man, but determining an exact date of its invention is impossible. The first lathes were undoubtedly spring­ pole or bow lathes that were powered by the opera­ tor. On a typical spring-pole lathe, the work was held between a set of "dead" centers, which were merely metal pOints (see the drawing on the facing page).

This book is just the thing for anyone interested in learning how to run or lathe or in sharpening lathe operation skills. The illustrations are good and clear. It has served to help me correct some bad habits picked up during a period of self-instruction. It's a progressive instruction and very easy to follow. Highly recommended for the hobbyist and the amateur. I think the professionals could use it to a degree, but they probably know it already.

I'm a novice, as such I want to know terrms and methods and maybe even step by step of basics, how to center uneven wood, how to mount on the lather, how to rough a rough piece to a round piece. Common problems of newbies to address.
And most importantly, how to sharpen your tools.
It's valuable information about lathes, but not the right vehicle to discuss the pros and cons of different manufacturers and sizes..

I bought this used for ~$6 dollrs which I would recommend. This is not the most comprehensive book on woodturning and lathes although it does briefly cover the many different topics which will arise to a beginner at woodturning. This is a good resource if you haven’t done any homework on lathes and turning but if you have, there will be very limited new information you’ll pull from here.

I have just ordered a small wood-working lathe and wanted a reference on how to set it up, sharpen tools and the basics of using the lathe. This book covers that and a good deal more. The author describes different types of lathes and some pluses and minuses of each style for specific uses.
Several approaches to sharpening tools and even making your own are covered. The use of chucks, faceplates and other workholding devices and examples of shop made versions of many of them are included.
I am looking forward to starting to turn some wood when my new lathe arrives!

This is a good reference book. I recently picked up a neglected lathe at a barn sale and this book gave me valuable tips to free frozen components.

A basic book for anyone desiring to get started in turning!

Well written... a bit simplistic but meets what I wanted when I bought it.
Hey...before I read this book I was quite uncertain which way to approach the lathe.
After having read it...I consider it "The Bible of Lathe Use".
I still may not LOOK like I know what I'm doing....but this book sure helps me along and safely.
I am still making big sticks into little sticks on the lathe...and yet I think that with this book's guidance there may just be potential for a bowl or spindle in my future.
