  • The HSK Handbook is an excellent book on HSK.  We only take one exception on page (43) where you state that the HSK Spindle Taper is not practical to be repaired.  We have been in the business 39 years, and have plated the face and taper of Spindle shafts with excellent success, saving customers considerable amount of time and money.  When we have completed this operation no one can tell that it has been Plated and Ground.

  • I recently purchased a copy of Dr. Kocherovsky's HSK handbook to assist in developing a product for testing HSK-type spindle drawbar pressure.  I would very much like to thank Dr. Kocherovsky for providing such a comprehensive, and well written explanation of the HSK concept and design.  It is well worth it's very huge price!

  • We have been searching for information on HSK shanks all over the place.  We found that this book was the best source of knowledge.  It really helped us to understand this system and learn all about the specification of each type of shank.  It is a must read.

  • I would like to thank you, for writing an excellent book. The Handbook for HSK's answers just about every question concerning HSK's. Since its introduction, the HSK has been a very difficult system to understand. Your book has gone beyond just a translation. This book has led me to understand this tool, the advantage's, the problems, and the proper care needed to maintain it.
    We use your book in the engineering and manufacturing of HSK toolholders. Although we know that we have to hold certain dimensions it always nice to know why.
    I can recommend this book to anyone in the business of design, manufacture, using, or even thinking about using an HSK.

  • This book is a must for the basic understanding of HSK.  If you do not understand the benefits now, this book will help clear up any questions you may have about the benefits of HSK. 
    This book is essential for all manufactures, marketers and salespeople to have as a reference guide.

  • Your book has helped us quite a bit. We have a tough time translating the prints for both holders and spindles. Since we now have your book, we know more about the specs and dimensions of the tools we use.
        I cannot say that I would change anything. I have referred your book to two gentlemen from a company called MLI (Machining Laboratories Inc.). They build machines and spindles and also sell a vibration analysis software that is very unique. I think they will be able to use this book to their advantage.
