    Default Cincinnati, LeBlond manuals, plus others from library

    I am posting way too frequently.Well, here's some interesting free documents as opposed to my usual nonsense.

    U of C Library system is digitizing. In addition, select public domain documents are made available in a variety of formats. A few neat items I came across today:

    1. LeBlond Dual Drive Lathes- download this even if you do not care for this machine series- acetate transparency scans- interesting.

    2. Cincinnati Milling Machine document fron early last century.

    3. Neat compendium on gagemaking
    http://www.archive.org/details/gagem...ppin00shairich

    4. Nice little work on metal coloring and transformation temps

    I am not opposed to someone trying to make a buck on manual sales-but I suspect a few of you will agree: free stuff = cool

    Default New Old Stock

    In response to Moderator M- more bounty from tool archive horn of plenty. Great news- new viewing fromat from our British colleagues: Flip Book. Fast online document viewing but very limited ability to manipulate . I view in flip, download in pdf.

    1. Brown and Sharpe 1896. If you have a B&S from this era, you need this thorough factory publication.

    http://www.archive.org/details/treat...nstr00browrich

    2. Formulas in Gearing another B&S document from 1900. Excellent and very detailed.


    http://www.archive.org/details/formu...arin00browrich

    3. Automatic Screw Machines 1916 astounding work of unanticipated tool complexity. By comparison, the engine lathe and milling machine of this era are vestigal.

    http://www.archive.org/details/autom...ewma00hamirich


    4. Screws and screw making. This work is the must have for pretty much every one. You will know what I mean when you view. This item marks entry into the internet library system for our Canadian neighbors-many thanks for this gem. From Colchester Britannia

    A general word about Microsoft document scanning- I do not know how they do it but no competing process gives the contrast and definition- especially on zoom. Really easy on the eyes.

    5. Here is the gem of this post -Scribd
    This website is a mix of legit and underground. There are works on here that are fresh and
    are not pulled due to copyright violation. Such seems the case for a newly published textbook from New Dehli-Precision Engineering. The authors have an inordinate fondness for MAHO-not that there is anything wrong with that. This text is less than 12 months old and very worth while download- all the more so since it is free. You must first register with Scribd which is almost painless. Then you get to download the document . The underground part- this website allows uploads of almost any document. Well, copyright violations seem to occur with regularity. I do not know the legality of downloading a given document but I have seen some exciting tech material here.
