The emphasis is upon machining with bonded abrasives. Mr. Repp has made an extensive effort to include up-to-date drawings and photos for this heavily illustrated book.
The author, Dr. Victor E. Repp, is a retired professor from Bowling Green University, who has used the help of the Grinding Wheel Institute, Norton Company, 3M, Cincinnati Milacron, and Jones and Shipman to prepare a new textbook on machining with abrasives.
