Ken Cope has produced a major new reference work that broadens our range of understanding of the history of technological innovation. This is the first book to identify American lathe builders operating throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. More than a thousand illustrations, taken from original catalogs and periodicals, trace the development of the American metal cutting lathe from the crude, hand-built models of the early 19th century to the fast, powerful models introduced in the early 20th century for use with high speed steel cutting tools. Soft cover.
