This book is designed to provide basic technical knowledge about tools, gadgets, instruments and other devices used during the manufacture of workpieces by machining. It also deals with the machining operations and their physical principles. It includes the manufacture of workpieces on the machine, with the measuring and testing of these parts with necessary calculations involved.The book is intended for those who are directly occupied with machine tools, but particularly for those connected with the metal trade, who are, however, not supposed to know all details about the machining operations, but they should have working knowledge about machine tools, cutting tools, their design and performance.Moreover the students entering polytechnics in mechanical engineering branch, whose field of activity predominantly comprises machine tools and appliances, must be well acquainted with the ways of manufacture.This book mainly covers the theory of manufacture and not the description of the skill itself, as the skill can only be acquired in the workshop and practical experience.More than 1000 line diagrams is the most important feature of this book.
