    Default CNC textbook?

    I would like to hear some recommendations for cnc textbooks, preferably oriented towards milling. Thanks.

    The best book you will ever find is the grouchy ol' grey haired bastard nobody ever wants to talk to---- if you know who he is, and you ain't buddied up to him, you is a missin the last o the last. Books are for filling in what you didn't hear or understand what he said. Oh and did I forget to mention, he is running out of days and interest.

    Perhaps I shouldn't have written that, It lets me sound bitter.

    Well, I do not know anyone locally (west Chicagoland) who would be a CNC machinist.

    Agree on Peters books, especially the one on macros/subs. It cleared up a lot for me.
    They're available at MSC

    Download the Haas vmc manual for free, great source of information.
