Ian Bradley’s classic guide to using Myford 7 series metalworking lathes in the home workshop was first published in 1973. The author revised the work in the 1980s to include the ML7, Super 7 and ML7-R lathes, so that the contents of the book are as valuable to readers who have the latest type of lathe, as well as those who possess the earlier machines.
This book is intended to be a workshop companion rather than simply a work reference. It deals with the use of the lathe and many items of equipment that have been provided for it.
