I’m working on a collection of manuals designed to quickly get beginners acquainted with tooling and workholding for different CNC machines. We’ve already got a pair of useful articles related to this area:

–  Guide to Lathe Workholding

–  CNC Router Cutter Types

I just completed a substantial rework and updating of the Guide to Lathe Workholding, so if you’ve never taken a gander at it, this is a good time to have a look.

One of the things it does is to organize lathe workholding into a matrix that compares each technique on the basis of Precision, Repeatability, and Convenience.  I always find having a framework of some kind to organize a bunch of concepts can really make it easier to learn and use the concepts.

There’s also a basic description of each of the workholding techniques and some other useful information like a 2-part Haas video series on the right way to make and use Soft Jaws.

Future articles will include:

–  CNC Mill Cutter Types

–  CNC Router Workholding

If you have suggestions for some other very basic guides you’d like to see us do, let me know.
