Like many things machining is learned through study and practice. When I started back in the mid 1970s it was a transitional period from the old school tool and die makers and their “by gosh and by golly” methods of making parts, to a system of machining to mathematical models. Under the old system no two parts were ever the same and everything was hand fit to make it work in conjunction with other parts. If you go to Youtube and watch the way watch parts are actually made in modern watch factories, you will see that even the watch industry has switched to this paradigm. There are several good reference sources that should be studied such as used school textbooks from machine shop classes and the machinist handbook. The books are expensive new but you can probably find less expensive used copies from ebay and other used book stores such as Amazon.
