    A comprehensive hardback book, packed with illustrations, how to guides, dedicated to the practice of the essential workshop practise of work holding.

    Workholding for Machinists explains the various workholding options that are available to the metalworker, together with the principles behind them.

The emphasis is on creating good work within a limited budget, and a limited range of resources.

    • Work holding on lathes and milling machines
    • Collets and collect chucks
