    Default Great video archive lots of machine tools

    Came across this today:

    Heavy artillery gun barrels being machined in Italy

    Was it common for the operator to "ride" the machine as seen at the end?

    Do some searches here amazing stuff! Here is a railroad one worth watching:

    Juniata Locomotive Shop workers build locomotives and trains, and send a ready locomotive to test plant in Altoona Pennsylvania

    Default "Machinery shop reciepts and formulas"

    This is a book with old recipes and formulas that are machine shop related. "Machinery Shop Receipts and Formulas", from Industrial Press. It has all sorts of recipes for things like filler for cast iron and methods of hardening steel etc.Interestingly one of the recipes is for whitewash, the author of that recipe was U S Grant, who said it worked well on the Whitehouse. http://ia341011.us.archive.org/1/ite...opre00newy.pdf

    Default "On the Economy of Machinery and Manufacturers" Charles Babbage.

    "On the Economy of Machinery and Manufacturers" by Charles Babbage. Unfortunately I haven't been able to download a PDF larger than 20MB for some time, so I'm not able to tell how interesting it actually is. As the inventor of the "Difference Engine", I would expect it to be of interest to some. http://www.archive.org/details/oneco...achi00babbrich

    Default Bement and Niles catalogs

    Found these two catalogs on the internet. The neat thing about them is that they have real pictures of the machines pasted in the catalogs.

    The library for these catalogs gives the age of them as 189?. There are no publishing dates in the catalogs. I know that the Niles catalog is pre 1887 and the Bement is pre 1885, so the Niles is probably 1880-1886 and the Bement is probably 1880-1884.

    Niles.
    HathiTrust Digital Library - Niles Tool Works, manufacturers of machine tools : machine, ...

    Check out the Niles mill, boy would that be neat to have.

    Bement.

    Here are a couple of sites that are of interest to antique machinery owners. Old Woodworking Machines has expanded and changed their name to Vintage machinery. http://vintagemachinery.org/ There are many metalworking and steam & gas engine images and publications already available. The site allows its members to upload both and to register their machinery in a serial number registry. The second site is the Directory of American Tool and Machinery Patents.[http://www.datamp.org/ There are over 2,000 metalworking machinery patents plus over 400 micrometer patents along with many other machinist tools.
    I have been working on entering patents at this site for 5 years and am now concentrating on metalworking machinery. This is where I need some help. If you have a tool or machine that has a patent number or date on it, I would like to know about it. I can then add it to the database as something that was actually manufactured. If you have a tool or machine that you are think might be patented, I am willing to research them.

    Here is a good link for when you don't feel like moving for a few days:

    editions:97HmAAAAMAAJ - Google Search

    It is a google archive of "American blacksmith and motor shop", a trade magazine printed from the turn of the century to the twenties that was written in that transitionary era when the tractor was replacing the draft horse and there was some uncertainty as to what trade would take over the (primarily agricultural) machinery and expanding auto repair business- would it be the blacksmiths who worked with the farmer or would it be the auto dealers who were slightly better set up for sales and service of mechanicals.

    Anyway, boy what a trove. You know all the questions people were asking about pouring babbitt a month ago? Well there are a ton or articles written by people on all sorts of babbitting stuff. Welding cast iron, forging, making socket wrenches with a steam hammer, lots of stuff!

    Anyway, the ones in the link are all available to download free in PDF and other forms, and you can save them to read at your leisure.
