HELPFUL HINTS FROM OLDTIMERS

MANY EXCELLENT MACHINING IDEAS TO SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY AND IT'S FREE!

All rights reserved. Copyright 2003

The following thoughts and ideas were accumulated by 30 years of machining successes and failures, reading magazine articles, and looking over other machinist's shoulders. Most of these tricks have to do with manual machining but many can be adapted to CNC machine work. Don't be surprised if you see some fabricating and hot work ideas as well. I will try to give credit where credit is due and many thanks to Guy Lautard (Author of The Machinist's Bedside Reader) www.lautard.com for his help and insight. All drawings are free hand but should be good enough to give you an idea of what I'm talking about. If you're familiar with an idea presented here, just move on to the next topic.

Machine shop work is an inherently dangerous business and it is YOUR responsibility to KNOW and USE safe working practices and procedures. Some of these ideas may or may not work for you. Accudyne Corporation and the author accept no responsibility for injury, death, or damaged property resulting from the use of ideas presented on this website.
