More About American Machinists Handbook by Fred H. Colvin
American Machinists Handbook, And Dictionary of Shop Terms is the work of author Fred H. Colvin and Frank A. Stanley, co-editors of the publication American Machinist. This book is intended to be the ultimate reference book for machinists and shop workers. Colvin and Stanley set out to create a reference book that could sit in the shops of machine workers and be referred to whenever a question or challenge arose. As such, the scope of this work is immense. The book is divided into sections, each of which focuses on a specific topic. Examples of sections include screw threads, pipe and pipe threads, work benches, soldering, milling and milling cutters, punch press tools, tapers and dovetails, shop and drawing room tools, steel and other metals, and several more. Each section goes into a great level of depth on the subject, and plenty of illustrations and tables are presented alongside the text to better assist the reader. The book concludes with a short dictionary of shop terms, as well as a detailed index. The authors are clearly experts in their field, and have created a reference manual that can be of great assistance to other experts as well as those new to machine and shop work. The information is presented in an easy to digest style, and while the scope of the book is significant, attention to deal has not been ignored. Each entry has seemingly been prepared with care, and the passion of the authors for the craft is allowed to shine through. While written over one hundred years ago, much of the information provided is as useful today as the day it was written. American Machinists Handbook, And Dictionary of Shop Terms remains an extremely valuable text for shop workers. Few reference guides are as thorough or prepared with as much care, and thus this book is highly recommended to all craftsmen interested in the subject matter.
