I am thinking about purchasing a small bench lathe to turn rotors, make
bushings, spacers, and some other different things. I would like to purchase
a really good, in detail book about lathe operation. Like a all-in-one book
on machining with a lathe. Thanks for any advice
South Bend's "How To Run A Lathe" under $10 from Lindey Books
But forget about turning a brake rotor on a standard engine lathe. It
takes a dedicated machine - or less than $10 each at your local parts
store. Use the lathe for bushings & spacers.
