Remove metal by spark erosion through electrical discharge machining. If this book had a good expanded picture of the actual machine that you will be building, I would have known that it's not what I want from the very beginning.

Although I now recognize the picture as a bad view of the machine in action, it's not a photo that really shows you what the entire machine looks like.

Basically an EDM machine uses the spark from an electrical discharge to remove a tiny bit of metal from the work

Basically an EDM machine uses the spark from an electrical discharge to remove a tiny bit of metal from the work. An electrode is used to deliver the spark to the work piece. The work piece is submerged in a "dielectric" fluid that helps to flush debris out of the spark zone. Fun to make, fascinating to use - perfect results! Softbound.

Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is one of key enabling . machining or those metal which is hard to be machined by traditional techniques.

Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is one of key enabling technologies for the fabrication o f micro. tools and micro components. Electrical discharge machining (EDM) and can be knowns as spark machining is an. manufacturing process to make or to obtain an desired shape by using electrical discharges to remove. some of the parts of the materials. EDM is one the. most extensively used non-conventional machining process in the modern industries.

Electrical discharge machining (EDM), also known as spark machining, spark eroding, die sinking, wire burning or wire erosion, is a manufacturing process whereby a desired shape is obtained by using electrical discharges (sparks).

In the book, "Build an EDM" Langlois explanes how to control raising and lowering the head with a stepper motor and how to make the stepper motor driver board

In the book, "Build an EDM" Langlois explanes how to control raising and lowering the head with a stepper motor and how to make the stepper motor driver board. Since I already had knowledge of PLC's, I controlled the head that way. The EDM is used for making special shaped holes and of course burning out broken taps.

As my title states, this booklet is well written. It gives details of how to build an EDM machine, and the explanations/directions (that I read) are directions that can be understood and followed by most DIYers (do-it-yourselfers). I especially found the explanation of how stepper motors work, very interesting and well written. Before reading it here, I didn't exactly know what a stepper motor was (although I had heard the name), let alone how one works. After reading the authors explanation, I now have a decent understanding of all of this, and could see applications for stepper motors in other machines that I may build.

The fact that the book is written well for DIYers, is why I gave it four stars. If you're one of those tinkerers who has built things of this caliber before, then you probably won't have a hard time following this book. It reminds me of the Forrest M. Mims books that Radio Shack used to sell (maybe they still do). Like those books, this book has hand-drawn pictures and diagrams. It also has actual black and white photographs, which the Mims books don't have. Unlike the Mims books, this book gives even more detail because it explains how to build something specific, whereas the Radio Shack books are about general education of electronic circuits and components, and how some of them work.

I will confess that I didn't read the entire booklet. This is because it isn't what I was looking for, and I realized this early on. This brings me to what is bad about the booklet.

First of all, you should know that this booklet explains how to build a stationary EDM machine, not one that can maneuver and cut a pattern the way that a CNC machine does. I was looking for one that maneuvers like a CNC machine, but that uses EDM to cut. That's not what this machine is. It's far simpler than that. It's basically a description of how to build a machine that will erode broken bolts from machinery, or erode a fixed pattern into a chunk of metal without the use of any lateral movement. In the case of eroding a pattern, you would have a metal object that is already the shape of what you want to "burn", and this machine will erode that pattern into another piece of metal.

Because this book has no meaningful picture on the front cover, and because amazon gives no access to its table of contents, I didn't know any of this. I was able to find a general table of contents elsewhere online, which mentioned the use of a stepper motor in the design. Because the design uses a stepper motor(s), I figured it was the CNC type (maneuverable) design that I was looking for. I was wrong. The stepper motor is used to move an electrode up and down precisely in order to create sparks, that's all. If this book had a good expanded picture of the actual machine that you will be building, I would have known that it's not what I want from the very beginning. Although I now recognize the picture as a bad view of the machine in action, it's not a photo that really shows you what the entire machine looks like.

I'm mostly writing this review to let others know what this book is, and what it isn't. If you want to build a CNC type EDM machine, then this book isn't what you want. I should have guessed this due to the fact that the booklet is only fifty something pages. But the mention of a stepper motor gave me hope.

I should also note that at least one of the businesses that is mentioned concerning where to get parts/supplies, is now out of business. Dynaart was a company that specialized in providing tools and supplies for hobbyists who want to build printed circuit boards. I used to use them in the past, and I know for a fact that they no longer exist. This booklet was written in 1996, so be aware of this. It's still a good booklet though, since you can still get PCB supplies from other vendors. They mention Digi-key as one, which is a great source that is still in business.

Bought this book for my husband so I can't write a proper review as I have no idea what's it's all about.
Definitely a book for anybody who is interested in removing metal by spark.
