1943 American Technical Society's "Machine Shop Operations" by Barritt/
Larson; this is a full-size hardbound item that is almost 2" thick;
plenty of illustrations w/ some occasional photos. War-time publishing
date, this was used as a training manual for the neophyte machinist, and
covers a wide variety of setups and operations, fully illustrated and
described, makes an excellent source of reference. Hundreds of setups/
operations are described step-by-step for the drillpress, lathe, shaper,
planer, horizontal boring mill, vertical boring mill, slotter, milling
machine, grinders; also good sections on measuring tools, layout, bench
work and floor work.
book is in VERY nice condition, inside and out! i'm guessing about 4 -
500 pages total; an excellent reference work for the beginning machinist
that will guide you thru hundreds of useful operations; this book was
created to "simplify and shorten the training period", probably for new
machinists during the WWII era, many coming to new jobs in the defense
Collectible AND useful, this one will be used often on your bench!
$25.00 + actual USPS shipping charges w/ mandatory confirmation &
optional insurance; email any questions.
tnx in advance!
