(On G-code programming of Fanuc lathe and mill)

Please note that the description of lathe G codes is updated and more elaborate in my CNC Handbook (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CR2SDL1F). Therefore, it is better to refer to the Handbook for lathe codes. However, this book has several things which are not included in the Handbook.
 
Thanks again!!
I went ahead and ordered the paperback as well as the Kindle edition.
Thank you.

I would also suggest to order the Handbook I referred to in my previous post. That is a wonderful source of information on CNC lathe. Very exhaustive and latest. It's eBook version would be offered for free in about two months from now. The paperback, unfortunately, cannot be made free due to production costs. However, it's price has been kept at a very comfortable level. Many of my posts are direct copy from this book, as you might have observed.

I didn't write a similar book on milling machine because I find that most people use CAM even for simple milling jobs. Why should I waste my time if nobody is interested !
The book you downloaded has enough information about milling machines.

I'll have to look, but I think I already ordered the handbook. :)
If not, I'll get on it. I'm old enough to retire, but still enjoy learning. I have to admit it can take a bit longer than it used to.....
Wishing you the best!

Learning never ends. I am also learning, though approaching 65.

Download link on amazon US site: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TGP74Z4

The book was revised a few months back. Therefore, if you have its earlier version, you may like to download it again.
 
Just purchased, thank you.
If you keep track of this thread, you will not need to purchase. Every week one eBook is free to download.
Only paperbacks will need to be purchased.

My specific recommendation is for the recently-published, 2024 edition, Fanuc CNC Lathe Handbook which has taken more than a year to write. It was free some time back. Will again be free after 10 weeks.

The next FREE offer is as per the following details, on ALL amazon sites:
(On offsets on i-series control)

For explaining the concepts, the book uses the method of master tool for offset setting, as it makes the understanding easy. This, however, is not a recommended method due to various reasons. Some type of probe/indicator is mostly used. The basic principles are, of course, same. The aim of the book is to explain basic concepts only. If somebody is new to all this, and does not even know the difference between geometry offset and wear offset, he/she must read this book.

This book is a part of my new book on basic G-code programming on a lathe, hence need not be purchased if you already have the new book, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CR2SDL1F

As many of you are aware, CNC is not the only area where I am active. I am also involved in teaching Engineering Drawing to the first-year engineering students. This is different from Machine Drawing (shop-floor drawings). Engineering Drawing deals with basic drawing concepts such as Orthographic projections of points/lines/lamina/solid, Section of solids, True views of oblique sections, Interpenetration of solids, Development of lateral surfaces, Isometric views etc. There are a number of good drawing books available, but I found that most students are not comfortable with overly-descriptive books. I have, therefore, published a book which explains the essential concepts with a number of examples, without going into too much details. All the drawings are very accurately made using AutoCAD (2024). Even the instructors may use this book for designing practice problems.

This book was recently available for free download for four days, out of amazon-permitted five days, in a span of 90 days. I did not inform here, as this book is not for machinists. However, some of your acquaintances might be 1st year engineering students, who may find the book useful. I am, therefore, informing that the book is again available for FREE download for one day (only) on ALL amazon sites:
