Overview

During the past decade, Peter Smid wrote dozens of column for Shop Talkmagazine that addressed the full gamut of CNC topics, such as tapping and threading and knurling; program length and memory needs; G-codes, M-functions, cycles, macros ... and more still. 

Ever since Shop Talk ceased publication, these columns have been unavailable. Now, in CNC Tips and Techniques, we are delighted to bring them back—over 60 of the best of Peter’s columns --- all under one cover, so that you can have full and easy access to the advice Peter has been sharing during the past decade.

CNC Tips and Techniques is a treasure trove of Peter Smid’s “lost work” that is certain to be an invaluable addition to your CNC toolkit.  We hope the advice and instructions contained in these readings will help you do your job more efficiently and more effectively – and that you find them a good read besides.
