I'm gradually assembling a metal shop in my basement/garage. Mostly to support my Alfa addiction, but also because it's so damn cool.

Learning how to use all the stuff I own is somewhat challenging. Many books assume you are in the industry, with big machinery and no time to waste. But for a home shop user, time is cheap, and the machinery limited.

I found Machine tool practices on Amazon used, and it's been the best book I've bought.
