by James Lukin

James Lukin, who lived from 1827-1917, is considered a giant in the field of ornamental turning. If Holtzapffel’s masterwork on turning leaves you wanting more, or wanting clearer examples, Turning Lathes is for you. This reprint springboards off Lukin's expanded 1894 edition of Turning Lathes and includes the 200 page 1896 Britannia Company Catalog that lists and illustrates all types of lathes and lathe equipment, as well as other quality machine tools.

Lukin’s comprehensive narrative reviews turning tools, hardwood turning, metal turning with hand tools, slide test work in metal, the self-acting lathe, chuck-making, turning square sections, screw cutting, metal spinning, a description of Beddow Us (combined) epicycloidal, rose cutting, eccentric cutting, drilling, fluting and vertical cutting, the eccentric chuck, the dome or spherical chuck, the goniostat, the oval or ellipse chuck, and many other related topics.

With over 400 illustrations. 432 pages. 6 x 1.01 x 9 inches. Softbound.

Binding: TP
Publisher: Full Chisel Press
