This book deals with the process of choosing and using a milling machine and its accessories. In addition to the machine itself, the accessories include the cutters, cutter chucks, work piece clamps, vices, angle plates, dividing heads, rotary tables, boring heads and other minor items. It describes what machines and accessories are available, which are essential and which can be obtained when the workshop activity eventually demands one. The usage of each machine and accessory is described in sufficient detail for the vast majority of uses that will surface in the home workshop. The actual machining process and a less-understood feature of milling, back cutting, are explained in detail. The subject of sharpening milling tools is briefly covered and a simple off hand grinder fixture that will bring new life to a used end mill is described.

The Milling Machine is also known as book 4 from the best selling 7 book series, 'Build Your Own Metal Working Shop From Scrap'. Especially designed for the developing home shop. It’s a horizontal miller, but it has the full range of vertical mill capability when used with the angle plate on the work table. Extremely rigid and versatile. The work table is 2 3/8" x 12" with a 3/8" T-slot and it travels a full 12". Eight speeds from 43 rpm to 2430 rpm. The spindle raises as much as 6" above the work table and the transmission is designed to follow the vertical travel without straining the column or changing the belt tension. Accessories included in the project are angle plate, face plate, fly cutter, tail-stand and compound slide assembly with which you can do large swing lathe jobs. Still no need to look for outside help. It’s a miller and more, and you can build it your self.

Stop-motion puppet animation is one of the most unusual and demanding art forms in the world. It uses a variety of skills, including design, sculpting, metal work, mold making and casting, taxidermy, filmmaking, storytelling and acting, and can be seen in the simplest commercial spots on television to more complex animated shorts and science fiction and fantasy feature films. This work, with over 200 photographs and illustrations, demonstrates the construction of armatures for film industry stop-motion puppets and the technical aspects of how to machine metal into the desired shape. It describes in detail the milling machine and the metal lathe, the two main tools used in constructing the armature, other cutting tools, and how the anatomical makeup of the puppet determines the armature design. The book then examines the six main types of joints used in armature construction: the sandwich plate ball-and-socket joint, the ball-and-socket collet joint, the step-block ball-and-socket joint, the swivel joint, the hinge joint, and the universal joint. Also described are the different types of metals used in armature construction.
