1800 mechanical movements and devices from a 1921 manual. Each appliance has a mechanical drawing showing cut-away details of the machine and a description accompanies each one. Categories include: motive power, steam power, steam appliances, hydraulic power and devices, air power devices and mining.
A fascinating and historically accurate visual record of early twentieth century machines and their uses, this is also useful for small engineering quality drawings of machines, from hydraulic rams, piston engines, machine sheep shears, to the Bessemer steel converter. Illustrations:
