Now in its sixth edition, this book is the definitive work on the small precision lathe, past and present. The bulk of de Carle's original text has been retained and covers basic construction, selection, care of and accessories for the lathe, as well as its uses. Likewise, the chapter 'Lathes of the World' is still included, since it represents an unparalelled source of detailed information on lathes and accessories, the manufacture of which ceased many years ago. However, this new edition is fully up to date. The current scene is dealt with at length in the final section, 'Lathes Today', and is the result of extensive world-wide research. The directory of lathe, tool and material stockists has also been completely revised. "The Watchmaker's and Model Engineer's Lathe" is still, to quote one reviewer of a previous edition, 'The standard work on the subject'.
