## Latest revision as of 16:41, 10 March 2016

This is reference material for people interested in using our mill. This material is collected here in order to assist a workshop on using the mill as well as for people to teach themselves how to use this machine.

## [edit] Reading Material

This is a scan of two chapters from the book Machining Fundamentals on mills. This is a highly illustrated book with lots of different mill configurations and ways of using a mill.

Here are some scans from an older book called the "Metal Working Handbook". I recommend reading the chapter on Measuring Tools at least:

- MetalWorkingHandbook-MeasuringTools-chapter2.pdf.zip
- MetalWorkingHandbook-MillingMachines-chapter13+14.pdf.zip

This site has some more reading material on using mills:

## [edit] Supplementary books

## [edit] Videos

We have a set of training videos physically in Bloominglabs for the official machining workshop.

However in the mean-time if you are waiting to take the machining workshop, these MIT training videos are a reasonable introduction to the mill. They are part of a 10 video series on machine tools, these are the lathe videos from this series. They each are about 45 minutes in length.

- [1] - MIT video 1 for the mill
- [2] - MIT video 2 for the mill
- [3] - MIT video 3 for the mill
- [4] - MIT video 4 for the mill

- [5] - A good video on selecting endmills and how to determine speeds to run at
