As well as covering the various workholding options, this book explains the principles behind them. It explains the importance of precision in holding work in place, and also the importance of tools and machines being held securely, so that the machinist may avoid damage to the machine and to the work being undertaken, and thus achieve a high quality end product. The emphasis is on creating good work within a limited budget, and a limited range of resources. The topics covered in this new book include work holding on lathes and milling machines, collets and collect chucks, turning between centers, turning on a faceplate, and tool holding.
