April 2014 - Written by James A. Harvey, an experienced machinist and plastic injection moldmaker, this manual will reportedly have users thinking and producing like experienced machinists. The second edition of "Machine Shop Trade Secrets" from Industrial Press Inc. provides practical how-to information that can immediately be put to use to improve machining skills, craftsmanship and productivity.

Users will discover ways to: work faster; select, make and grind cutters; surface grind blocks, pins and shapes; cut threads, knurl parts and eliminate warpage; choose realistic machining parameters; remove broken taps, drill bits and other hardware; apply proven CNC techniques to maximize output; improve surface finishes and hold tighter tolerances; assist engineers with design and manufacturing issues; improve indicating skills; and develop a "feel" for machining.

New to the second edition:

• Includes 4-color photos throughout.

• Features a reformatted layout that fully integrates the text and photos to make the book more accessible.

• The chapter "The Incredible CNC" has been greatly expanded and completely updated to reflect advances since the previous edition.

• Most chapters have easy-to-use tables, summarizing all of the tips, suggestions and secrets from that chapter. This enables readers to see in a glance the detailed topics covered.
