What lathe is it? If ever it is a Crafstman or Atlas 6", I might have a copy
of a manual for you.

As for a general book, I recommend Machine Tool Technology, by Victor E.
Repp and William McCarthy, Bennet and McKnight Publishing, ISBN

For a specific book on lathe, The Amateur Lathe by L.H Sparey, Argus Books
Limited, is excellent. This is an English book though, and I don't know if
it is available in this country.

I have just been given a lathe. Something I have always wanted, but have
used one before.
Can anyone recommend a basic manual.  Presumably there are guidelines on
speed / what cutting tool / steel grade / lubricant / to use for cutting
different metals?
