Milling: A Complete Course (Workshop Practice) Reviews
The title of the book is a misnomer, since this is far from a complete course on milling. It is, however, a good book for a starter for somebody who's bought a small home mill and has discovered that it's missing even the most basic tools and has no real instructions with it. I've been a machinist since the mid-1980's and have plenty of practice and tools, and there were even a few items among the projects that I intend to build. Given the price, if you've just bought a small mill and haven't the foggiest idea what to do with it, this book is money well spent. I gave it only four stars, however, mainly because it's not what it claims to be when it says it's a "complete" course. Instead, it's an excellent place to start.
This is a different approach than other books in the series in that it teaches the use of the mill through accessory projects that produce required accessories. There are hold downs, clamps blocks right angle adapters, etc. that will keep one busy for quite a while and will outfit the mill station with useful hardware.
You make a very complicated grinding rest in this book. I have yet to even touch that project yet so i can't comment on the quality of the instruction but Mr. Hall explains a lot of things about milling that would normally take years of broken tools to learn on your own.
I have bought three of Harold Hall's books, and they have all been read, used and re-read.
It is a good study book. When I need to do some engineering, it is available.
Very interesting, lots of information, some projects.
Excellent book, arrived as described. Pleasure doing business with, highly recommend this seller.
Very nice, a lot of useful information
