Each issue of Production Machining contains a monthly feature titled “Craftsman’s Cribsheet” (appearing within the PMPA section). This one-pager identifies “tear-out” ideas about management, technical, quality and regulatory topics, presenting them in point-by-point fashion.

The most recent Cribsheet (Number 30) explains the meaning of ductility—the ability of a material to deform plastically without fracturing. It details the effects of ductility in the production of chips. The Cribsheet from our February issue focuses on the three key factors in understanding machinability of carbon and alloy steel.
