This timely book covers the core subject areas essential toward building a basic foundation required to effectively work in the machining area of today's manufacturing technology. Each section begins with an introductory overview, followed by easy-to-read instructional units designed around specific projects that accurately reflect the state of the art in industrial machine shop environments. The book also includes an introduction to all common manual machine tool operations, with an introduction to computer numerical control operations. For budding computer numerical control (CNC) and conventional machine operators, general machinists or tool and die makers.

This new edition of a classic covers manual and computer-based machine tool operations. The authors have retained the helpful step-by-step approach using photo sequences to illustrate technical procedures.Key features of this new edition:
The major objective of this edition, like that of previous editions, is to provide a current and richly illustrated text for those students training to become computer numerical control (CNC) and conventional machine operators, general machinists, or tool and die makers, either through apprenticeship training or community college and vocational programs. The content deals with topics usually presented in a combined lecture/laboratory program. However, the text is designed such that it may also be used in a self-paced instructional environment.
The authors fully realize that the field of machine tools and machining practices has changed greatly over the past few years. Many of the classical processes heretofore considered to be an important component of machinist training are no longer taught or even done in manufacturing, especially in the age of CNC. However, we feel that the content of this edition continues to verbalize and illustrate the major core subject areas of the machinist's education, even though the major thrust of a student's employment may be more oriented toward CNC production machine operation than toward the more general job shop or prototype manufacturing environment.
No matter what directions the field of machine tools and machining practices may take in future years, we remain steadfast in our belief that the content of this edition is both timely and essential to the basic foundation that a student needs to participate effectively in the machining area of manufacturing technology.
To better meet the needs of users of this book, the authors have made a careful study of the entire contents. Many users of previous editions were consulted and their comments incorporated so that this seventh edition could be updated to meet the present-day needs of students and instructors, and current industry training standards. Following are some of the special features included in this textbook:
Additions and new features in the seventh edition include:
Although we have updated this edition to reflect current machining technology, we have preserved essential classical machine shop practice while deleting that which is truly not relevant or no longer used. We believe that the standard machine shop practices that make up the bulk of this edition are still very relevant to the machining technology field, even in this age of high-technology, computer-supported manufacturing. Students of modern machining technology will still require solid backgrounds in standard practice if they are to understand and appreciate computer-controlled and computer-supported machining as well as other high-technology manufacturing processes.
The following materials are available to supplement the textbook:
The workbook is project oriented and not just a series of exercises in which the student has no real vested interest. The projects, when completed, are all useful devices and as such, help to motivate students. The workbook, together with Machine Tool Practices, provides an orderly, efficient, and complete teaching system that is quite flexible and easy to set up and use for any machine technology training program. Use of the student workbook is highly recommended.
