This vintage book contains a handbook of useful information originally designed for inspectors, surveyors, engineers, factory foremen, and the general steam-using public. With information on everything from repairing boilers to general advice, this profusely illustrated volume will appeal to modern readers with a practical interest in steam power and collectors of vintage literature of this ilk. Contents include: "Accidents Through Bad Workmanship", "Angle-Iron Rings", "Areas of Circles", "Cambers, Templates of", "Care of Boilers", "Caulking", "Circumferences of Circles", "Iron Rings", "Cones, Templates of", "Countersinking", "Curves of Steam Chests", "Cylindrical Boilers", "Decimal Equivalents to the Divisions of an Inch", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on metalworking.
