  • Popular Mechanics is Now Online

    THe fine folks at Google have put Popular Mechanics online

    http://books.google.com/books?id=Nt8..._issues_anchor

    Everybody give Google a round of Applause

    There is such an amount of material here that it might be an idea to have a Major Top Level Thread of Pop Mech and Pop Science Projects and sub thread of Lathe etc. Then as articles are found they can be posted and the build of the projects.

    Bill, although this has been posted a couple of times lately,
    some may have missed it. Thanks for re posting.
    Have you been able to download or print an article? I have not.

      I guess I'm a day late and a dollar short. Saving the pages is an interesting question. I did some searching and there seems to be a downloader, BUT I can't install it. I am like the person with XP SP3. it won't install for me

      Maybe some else can try it and report back.

        I'm using a Mac so used the built-in screen grabber tool to snag the three-page article I was interested in. They appear to strongly disallow downloading these pages otherwise.

          All you shaper owners might want to check out the February 1954 issue of Popular Mechanics. See pages 228 and 234 through 239. Enjoy.

                There are many career or business opportunities available within the pages to make BIG BUCKS or HUGE PROFITS. I should have taken some of them when I first read them. With the fourth one down I'd make a ton of money with all my forum posts. Just imagine Forrest on the Riviera with chicklets on his arm.

                  That's an Atlas bench top mill, Glenn. I'm looking for one to go with my Atlas shaper - anyone have one?

                  Edit: My error!! I opened the January issue rather than Feb, and the mill article is in there. Sure enough the shaper article is right where you said.

                    I use screenprint32, a free program that captures a screen or part of one when the prt scr key is pressed on a PC. www.screenprint32.com Works good.

                      Well I got the Google download manager to work.
                      Only problem is you have to save the whole book.
                      That July 53 edition was 61 meg.
                      Here's the 5 pages on the screwcutting article.

                        John,

                        How did you manage that? I gave it a fair shot the other night and I'm not computer dummy.

                          I'll do a new post but in the meanwhile here's

                          Accuracy for 70 years 1860 - 1930 By Pratt and Whitney

                          It's an 11 meg pdf file and I can only leave it up for so long.
