    I would suggest Powells Books at www.powells.com for the Machinist Bedside Readers as I just ordered the set, saved $7- $10 per copy over the sources mentioned earlier and had them in my hot little hands in 3 days with free postage!

    Enco sells them, as does MSC. Or go to www.Lautard.com and get them right from the author. They're excellent books, by the way.

    Kap,

    Thanks for the reference

    Been at this game for 60 years and this website's info is the best and most practical
    that I have ever read. Great for all of us.

    Is this available in book form.

    I just stumbled on it somewhere, don't remember where.

    Is there a way we could catalog the info on this site?

    We could have a heck of a site too.

    Does anyone use a belt/disc sander for tool grinding? What sort of disc/belt (grit etc)?

    I ask because it was mentioned in that fabulous UK reference site - but only briefly.

    I use a 1"x42" belt grinder with 15 Micron SiC 3M Mylar belts. Does a beautiful job of final hone/polish. I use a 120 or 60 grit Norzon belt for roughing.
