This guy obviously is a real machinist and knows his stuff. Use the look inside, it lets you see the first couple things in every chapter, if that doesn't convince you to buy either you are already a machining genius, or an arrogant chump who thinks you have nothing to learn. Some of the things in here I knew already, many I did not. This is in my opinion an essential book for any machinist who wants to make sure they are accurate and productive (i.e., making money, not rejects).

Excellent book, I own my own shop and I am the only employee!. This book should be used in the schools or in classes teaching machining. This book will stay with in arms reach in my shop. There is great practical information in this book and will with either add or remind you of better ways to work! Work Smart Not Hard!

Great book for machinists of all skill levels. Lots of useful tips. Easy to read and understand. Great use of pictures to get his point across

A++ a good book but is mostly a repeat of the first one

Great book with lots of neat little tips and tricks. If you are a seasoned tool and die maker, you probably know all of this information but it is a great read for those of us that aren't.

Something for all skill levels, both experienced machinists and novice alike. Excellent addition to the library

Nice to learn these from someone who has been there and done that. Also nice to avoid frustrating errors!

The book has lots of tricks that otherwise would take years to learn on your own.
