WAH!!!

Post by earlgo » Sun May 09, 2021 2:52 pm

I misplaced my "How to Run a Lathe" book. Anyone seen it or know where I put it? Someday the house recyclers will find it and pitch it in the dumpster with the other stuff. Hopefully, before then.....

Yes, I know it is on line, but my own printed copy is better.

Thanks for the offer, but after the zillianth look at the book case I found it next to another thinner paperback book that had curled over and hidden the black binding. It is like anything else, you find what you were looking for days ago when looking for something else.
A few years go I lost my micrometer and was about to order a new one, when I needed a bolt and there in the bolt box was the mic. I am confused when that happens.

erlago, you have been on this board long enough to be past the need of the basics in How to run a lathe

I wish, but thanks for the vote of confidence.
My friend was machining a cast iron model steam engine part for a mutual friend, and he mentioned to me that he found WD-40 to be a really good lubricant for cast iron, and I wanted to add that marginal note. The mutual friend said he used WD-40 all the time on cast iron, even as a tapping fluid. News to both of us.
And I also have the Manual of Lathe Operation and Machinists Tables from the Atlas Press Company that came with the 1958 Atlas Lathe that my Dad bought new. Hopefully I won't lose that as I am not sure that it is replaceable.
Some day my nephews or son-in-law may need the info.
