The fourth book from J. Randolph Bulgin The Engine Lathe: For the beginner, Randolph looks at the use and usefullness of the engine lathe, known by some as the “Queen of the shop.”

It is said by many that the engine lathe is the only machine tool in the shop that has the ability to reproduce itself when in the hands of a capable machinist. If I am ever told that I can only have one machine tool, it will be an engine lathe.
