Milling is the process of cutting away material - usually, but not exclusively, metal - by feeding a piece of work past a rotating multiple-tooth cutter. The cutting action of the teeth of the milling cutter provides a fast method of machining, and the machined surface may be flat, angular, or curved. The surface may also be milled to any combination of shapes.
The process of milling is a vital part of the engineers, and the model engineers, armoury. Stan Brays detailed book on this important subject covers different types of milling machine and describes milling techniques with the aid of photographs and specially prepared drawings. Including much advice and warnings of potential pitfalls, this book is the perfect companion for the amateur engineer.
