Lindsay sells a book called, I think, Advanced Machine Work, or
something like that. It is old, but its method is to take you through
several examples, all the way down to oiling the machine and cleaning up
There is also a pretty good video tape on basic vertical mill operation
that I bought years ago. If you are interested, email me off line and I
can loan it to you.

Very good book and worth the money.
Be sure and check Lindsay's books out as these are reprints and
cover techniques no longer used in industry, but which can be
very helpful to the hobby/home shop machinist. Just remember
that the reprints are from the 1930s and earlier, and some of the
brand names/materials they suggest are obsolete and unavailable.
