Does the Workshop Practice Series #49 "The Milling Machine" by Harold Hall have any new information, or is it just a rehash of his #35 "Milling: A Complete Course"?

it describes the Milling machine and has photos and brief descriptions of several commercially available machines as examples. It also describes the additional equipment that you may need (e.g. rotary tables, dividing heads, clamps and vices). There is a section on basic use of the machine and a short chapter on keeping your cutters in good condition.

My copy was published in 2011 and, unless there has been an update, it is really quite out of date from the point of view of machinery that is currently available.
