From a craftsman with a lifetime's experience in engineering and metalworking, a detailed guide to milling, a vital part of the engineer's and the model engineer's armory
With the aid of photographs and specially prepared drawings, this guide covers different types of milling machines and describes milling techniques. Milling is the process of cutting away materialusually, but not exclusively, metalby feeding a piece of work past a rotating multiple-tooth cutter. The cutting action of the teeth of the milling cutter provides a fast method of machining, and the machines surface may be flat, angular, or curved. The surface may also be milled to any combination of shapes. Offering plenty of advice and warnings of potential pitfalls, this is the perfect companion for the amateur engineer.
