Overview

“…James Harvey has written an excellent book that fills a void in current metalworking instructional books. Most textbooks are aimed at the beginner in the machining trade and cover basic work practice admirably. What textbooks do not do is sit you down with a veteran of the trade who can fill you in on the tips and tricks that allow working faster, accurately and intelligently. What amazed me is at how all these tips are not recycled versions of the ones we are all familiar with (as published by Lindsay's books and others) but are new tips, all useful and pertinent to the tools and methods of today.”

Nicholas Carter

Machine Shop Trade Secrets provides practical “how-to” information that can immediately be put to use to improve ones machining skills, craftsmanship, and productivity.

    Well written book full of GOOD information!

    This book is a must have for the machinist needing good basic knowledge of machine set up as well as the experienced person wanting to learn some good shortcuts. It isn't dry and full of feeds and charts, just good basic info and excellent tips and tricks. I haven't been able to put it down. I'm already convinced it's worth the cost and I'm only a fourth of the way into it. I highly recommend this book.
