There is no attempt to provide an exhaustive treatise on lathe operation, since it is assumed that the
operator will have sufficient experience in general lathe practice to properly turn out the work required.
It is also presumed that the novice will operate under the supervision of a competent instructor. For those
desiring such information, there are several ably written handbooks covering lathe operation in detail,
which can be easily obtained through any good book store.
