This booklet of the LatheCity book series outlines briefly standard machining techniques on a metal lathe and mill. The object is to introduce these tools to reader interested in artwork project which may not necessarily have prior skills in the use of these metal working techniques. However, this booklet is not a detailed metal working tutorial. The newcomer will see what can be done with these tools and may become interested to start learning machining. Some guidance is offered in regard of selecting the right lathe and mill for such works. For the expert, the outline of machining techniques may be sufficient to refresh prior knowledge. The booklet includes a section about materials used for jewelry and miniature machining as well as tips and tricks. In addition, a large number of drawings and photos together with short descriptions about how to machine these pieces are included. My perspective is the one of a hobby machinist and not of an artist. A number of pages are printed in full color.
