Purcell (South Bend Copy). By far the best Manual for this lathe is the one produced by Denford Tools for the original Boxford lathe. A few mechanical details are different but the operating procedures are identical. It contains a complete 136-page set of information for all models of belt-drive Boxford lathe from the earliest to the last made.

SHAPER WORK - Work on the Shaping machine - a complete, highlyy detailed and well-illustrated 333-page book on how to use and get the best from any shaper. Titled: "For beginners in Machine Shop Practice" it features a larger machine - but the methods and principles involved apply to all makes and types. A very heavy publication, bound in two volumes and printed on a heavy, high-quality 120g paper

SOUTH BEND 9-inch and 10-inch "10K" lathes. The very best Manual for this lathe is the one produced in England for the South Bend clone made by Boxford. Unlike the South Bend book "How to Run a Lathe" this 137-page edition concentrates in detail on the 9-inch lathe. I have also added all the known relevant South Bend 9-inch data to give a complete data pack for the machine: - operating instructions - extra screwcutting charts with metric conversions for both the changewheel and gearbox models and other valuable data.

The South Bend shaper manual is the one we sell as the best general guide to using a shaper. Although, of course, the instructions on settings and adjustment are specific to the South Bend machine, most of its content is applicable to running any shaper. There is a particularly good section on cutting tools and holders and annotated diagrams showing the names of parts. 23 well-illustrated pages - but no parts list. £18
