I love the stuff you post. I always get searching on that site and find a ton of stuff of interest. Sometimes I feel my head will explode. I just scanned a 1850 something book on sheet metal work for apprentices - GREAT STUFF

For you black hat guys, you can get the 27th or 28th with Torrents.

The very cool thing about this is that the basics of machining, the math, the tables ...etc have not changed... so that the info in the 1941 edition is as useful today as it was then.........

the newer ones have MORE info but the core basics still apply...

I just checked, I have my Dad's one, also 1941 but printed in England, it lists it's wartime address as Brighton. Cost 38 shillings which was a lot then but as has already been pointed out is as relevant today as when it was printed.

I love these old books. I love the books from the 1790's-1950's..

After the 50's it seems a lot of the books got more hightech.


Not to say there aren't any good books after 1950. But from all the books I have read I prefer the earlier ones. More than likely it's just me.

Or what I should say is the person writing them seems to have a lot of real world knowledge and is able to pass it along, where as time goes on alot of the info is all ready known or all ready forgotten in favor of other matters.

I have one of those, it's a scanned book but don't know the date on it. Sometimes I would rather have a regular book rather than only on the computer. I plan on springing for a new book this summer.
