“The lathe is such an important tool in the metal-working arts and is made in so many different sizes and patterns, that a volume many times larger than this would be needed to deal fully with its design, construction, and use.  The present book is, however, mainly intended as a guide to the methods of using lathes of the kind usually found in the workshops of general engineers, cycle and motor repairers, instrument makers, model makers, and amateurs.  Many of the principles of small lathe work apply equally well to tools and work of any size, and for this reason I hope that the following pages may also prove helpful to the apprentice engineer and young professional mechanic, to whom a knowledge of metal turning is of value.”
