    Default Huge Bedside Reader

    If you have a PDF reader

    1000 pages, hundreds of photos, tables, and articles. Example on page 37: Disk and button method of locating holes. Lots of first principle examples.

    1914 collection of information on machines from coke and ore to a catalog of commercial machines of the day.

    Nice find Dennis. Is that a collection of American Machinist articles?

    There is no front matter that explains the source, but it is from Industrial Press which still publishes the Machinery's Handbook and has been around since Forrest was a kid.

    This huge collection is XXI of ? such. That would be a lot of information if someone had the whole series.

    Do they let you actually pull down the whole thing? I hate reading things online. I could just zip it over to the kindle.

    EDIT: Nevermind. I'm having one of those window-licker days. Download PDF link on the top-right.

    It is only available for download in the US. Because of the licensing agreements Google has they can't offer it free outside of the US. I don't get a download link here.

    Dennis,

    This is great source material for anybody interested in old machinery.

    Here is a sample of the Table of Contents, for anybody wondering if they should download it too.

    But as a computer buff, you should know how to download it using a free proxy server (note: not all of them work for downloading files though).

    I just did, and it worked just fine.

    Yes, of course. But most members don't know how.

    Easier is to go here:

    They have numerous editions and volumes and they can be downloaded in nearly any format you like including Kindle.
