One of the reasons that the South Bend Lathe became so popular was because of their publishing's. The O'Brien Brothers were the pioneers of easy do-it-yourself material. They wrote these books
, articles and manuals not just for the seasoned engineers, but also for the average person to understand. And because of these publications (and because they made/make the best lathes in the world), they became very popular and at one point they even supplied over 75% of all lathes in schools and colleges*.

Out of every Lathe Building Book I have ever owned (or read), this book (and the Gingery Series) are the best books around for anything to do with the Metal Lathe.

No matter how time I spend searching for lathe books and references, I always come back to these books published almost 100 years ago. The only books I believe to be of any equal in value are David and Vincent Gingery's books.
