Tool and Cutter Grinding

By Marcus Bowman

The cutting edges on engineering tools must lie at precise angles to ensure effective cutting and sharpening must re-create the original geometry of each tool. This book provides an understanding of what is involved in sharpening typical lathe, milling, drilling and threading tools. With over 550 photographs and illustrations the author covers sharpening techniques for the most commonly used engineering tools, screwdrivers, gravers, lathe, milling, reaming, drilling and threading cutters. It identifies the two principal types of work head and discusses the way in which their geometry affects typical sharpening set ups. It teaches how to use the three basic movements of swing, tilt and rotate to position a tool against a grinding wheel to ensure correct tool angles and sharp cutting edges. Contains useful tables for setting, cutting and clearance angles and provides general advice on tool and cutter grinders. Finally it shows photos of accessories that can be made to simplify set ups including work heads, tool holders and fixtures.
