About the Author

Ian Bradley, who died in 1995, had a lifetime's experience in precision engineering and contributed articles to Model Engineer magazine for over 50 years. During that period, thousands of engineers had come to regard this book as the first point of reference to turn to when a new aspect of the hobby presented itself.

Reviews

This book has been out of print for about 10 years. A few months ago, I visited Chris Lloyd of Special Interest books in Poole. During out chat, I mentioned Ian Bradley's Myford lathe book. He said there was no intention at that stage of reprinting it. You can imagine my surprise when I received a copy through the post in mid July saying the book had been reprinted. This is a welcome addition to any Myford owner's workshop. Copies change hands on Ebay for up to GBP50 each.The book runs through the basics of a Myford lathe and then tells you about installing and levelling it. Lathe tool selection and regrinding are covered in detail followed by how to mount work in the lathe.General turning, drilling and boring are covered as well as threading and screwcutting. Milling, gear cutting, and taper turning each have their own section, as does repetition work.Drawings are given for a back toolpost together with accessories. There is a section on useful formulas and tables and the book concludes with lubrication charts for the ML7, the ML7R and the Super 7 lathes.All in all, a very useful book which will find a home with most Myford users - The Model Engineers Workshop.
