    Here's a better deal... Machine Shop Practice (Volume 1 & 2) by K. H. Moltrecht Item number: 130063211668

    Much cheaper then B&N.

      I'm just an amateur machinist-hack, but I've read a lot of machinist books, and Moltrecht is by far the best...

        And considering Amazon and B&N want $35 bucks or so a piece plus shipping this could be a great deal.

          Holy cow, $48 for both Moltrecht volumes? Ebay is just plain weird. I bought those on eBay last January, 1981 printing in new condition with the DJs, for $9.38 for the pair. I had to fight for them, too. I guess inflation is worse than the official figures let on.

              Heisenberg effect -- by posting the link to a live Ebay auction on HSM or PM, you're guaranteeing the price is going to go up...

              Would you believe the cheapest place to buy the Ingenious Mechanisms set is Harbor Freight? Seriously

              I almost bought that set, but I got a chance to flip through it at Barnes and Noble, and it's mostly a compendium of old patents. Parmley's "Illustrated Sourcebook of Mechanical Components" is much better, IMHO...
