South Bend: "How to Run a Lathe". Detailed 128-page printed one page per side A4 and so enlarged from the original smaller A5. General instructions for a wide range of South Bend lathes. This is a very high quality reproduction of the last high-quality, superby printed "gloss-paper" editions (after which the reproduction was markedly inferior). Superb photographs and drawings. Includes a copy of the separate Bulletin set: The Installation and Leveling of a Lathe; Keeping Your Lathe in Trim; Keeping Your Lathe Clean and Oiling the Lathe.

For the best possible reproduction this in the form of a high-resolution scan printed at 1200 d.p.i. onto a heavy, semi-gloss 120g paper.
