Trying to download again... see what happens.
Worked for me this time, thanks.Anyone having trouble downloading can try this dropbox link https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/46279918/G&L Handbook of Horizontal Boring.pdf
It is 327MB in size
..Whoever created this PDF file did an excellent job of scanning the original book...
If anyone else wanted it they only needed send me a PM.
I understand the book is not my property and I was kindly sharing it after investing my own time, effort, and money to make it available.
I'm a little frustrated at this, having not noticed this thread earlier.
I was just surprised to find others offering up the same file I created and no mention where they got it.
Right there is the biggest problem with open source info without any citations.Right, it's not that big a deal. I was just surprised to find others offering up the same file I created and no mention where they got it.
Would like a DVD copy of the books set up pictures and info if you canG&L Handbook: Horizontal Boring, Drilling and Milling Machines and Their Application
I stopped by my Grandpa's yesterday and found this old book:

This book is amazing. It starts out explaining all of the different components of the horizontal boring mill. It then goes on to explain all of the various types of tooling, fixturing, etc. At the end it show cases common applications for the horizontal boring mill along with some atypical cases.
Check out this picture:

How cool is that?
I hope to take this to work, scan the entire book as a PDF and send it to Keith Rucker to post on his website. This is a great book. I can't find an ISBN anywhere on it. It was actually written and published by Giddings & Lewis. Has anyone else ever seen this book before?
I never got a reply from Grigg, so I guess he has no access
to any G&L documentation any more.
Would like a DVD copy of the books set up pictures and info. if you can
