That was a useful little book. I got one in 1974 with my Craftsman 12" lathe. Later loaned it to my step father,and he lost it. Too bad. The tables in it were useful.

I doubt it is in the public domain yet unless it was published prior to 1923. I think I have a hard copy at work... I will check tomorrow.

It is not very hard to find this stuff. Why ask others to find it for you?
People do sell photocopies.

From a site that used to sell copies: "However, I stopped selling these books when I discovered the Clausing was still selling this book. You can buy a new copy from them for only $25. Call their Service Center at 800-535-6553."

they sell it, the problem is shipping and handling to Germany, doubles the price or even triples it. However, the Scribd link is great. Thanks.

A very handy book and I have had one for years. I think it has a lot more practical information for the novice than the South Bend Book "How to run a lathe" concerning how to take cuts, grind tools, thread, etc. I patrticulary like the section on threading. Cheers, tjs42
