How to Run a Lathe: The Care and Operation of a Screw Cutting Lathe by John Joseph O'Brien, Miles William O'Brien, South Bend Lathe Works

2013 Reprint of 1942 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. South Bend Lathe Works sent out this manual with every Lathe they sold. Profusely illustrated. You get everything you need to set up a lathe and get it running. This is the lathe manual that Dave Gingery raves about. You get eleven chapters: history and development of the lathe, setting up and leveling the lathe, operation of the lathe, lathe tools and their application, how to take accurate measurements, plain turning (work between centers), chuck work; taper turning and boring, drilling reaming and tapping, cutting screw threads, and special classes of work. All the basics are here form sharpening drills to producing "super-finished" turned bearings, grinding valves, and turning multiple screw threads.
