Numerous live examples of the spindles have been provided together with the detailed procedures and practical tips. There is some bonus material included by the author and addressing the thread cutting, lathe alignment and some other relevant information. This book shall be treated as a very practical source for all people involved in the design of the spindles, building tool post grinders, special applications or just willing to learn a bit more about the correct using of the lathe. All plans and instructions contained in the publication are very clear and, what is also very important, are all do-able. A really decent volume presenting a listing of the designs tested by the author and provided with the drawings. However, the author has decided not to go too deep into the theory of the spindle design. This volume is considered the ideal one for the beginners in the field.
