Published by Machine Tool Publications
533 pages; hundreds of photos and illustrations

Machine Tool ReconditioningThis is the "bible" for reconditioning machines by describing specifically how to "hand scrape" in machine surfaces so they are flat and true.  It takes specific types of machine tools, like lathes, mills, grinders, etc. and shows how to check surfaces for trueness and then how to go about getting surfaces back into specification.  This book is a must for any craftsman's library and will certainly change the way one looks at a flat surface for ever.
