Making deep holes in materials ranging from wood, to plastics,
and on to the toughest, most stubborn materials modern
metallurgy has to offer has always held a deep fascination
Understandably, there’s a lot of ground to cover in this book. I’ve attempted to structure the chapters in a manner which allows the reader to quickly navigate to the specific answers he’s seeking in a minimum amount of reading time.
Due to the diversity of the holemaking industry and specific individual holemaking requirements, the book attempts to be all things to all people.
Accordingly, you not only learn the intricacies of the approach which best fits your needs, but are further afforded a peripheral view into the available alternatives, and this can only justify and enforce your final choices.
If you’re already experienced in some phase of deep hole drilling, you’ll still come away the wiser, finding plenty of knowledge to improve your day to day drilling environment and learning a few good tricks along the way.
The individual chapters are structured in building block fashion. We begin with Part I., which starts with a History lesson. In the chapter on Applications, you get a handshaking acquaintance with where and how the process applies.
From there on we get into the nitty-gritty: Part II., ‘Putting the Gundrilling Process to Work’ gives you all the nuts and bolts stuff.
