    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.

    And you may find original books.
    1937 Manual Lathe Operation & Machinists Tables-Atlas - eBay (item 360282589125 end time Jul-26-10 10:33:40 PDT)

    Or the free download, 1937 edition, took about 9 minutes to get the pdf version by cable connection.

    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."

    Jep,
    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.

    Cheers,
    Johann

    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
