The Home Machinist Series is filled with everything you ever wanted to know about machining and more. I feel quite confident that those who read the whole series, or even just one book, will come away with invaluable and extensive knowledge that will help further their craft.Shawn Arnold, Publisher CNC WEST magazine

There is a wealth of insightful and easy-to-comprehend information for metalworkers in the five books in the Home Machinist Series from Fox Chapel Publishing. The books are extensively illustrated with photos and illustrations to help readers better understand the content, which is well-organized to serve as handy, long-term machining references.Alan Richter, Editor at Large, Cutting Tool Engineering magazine
