The Engine Lathe: For the beginner

Welcome back to Randolph's Shop. In this book, we look into the use and usefulness of the engine lathe, known by some as the "Queen of the Shop." It is said by many that the engine lathe is the only machine tool in the shop that has the ability to reproduce itself when in the hands of a capable machinst. "If (Heaven forbid!)

Doug Kelley's very popular Snow natural gas pumping engine, as an internal combustion engine construction series, first appeared in The Home Shop Machinist magazine.
