"Mechanical Drafting" is a complete and detailed handbook on technical drawing intended for students of engineering and related subjects. This profusely illustrated guide contains information on all aspects of mechanic drafting and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "Lettering, Freehand and Mechanical", "Use of Instruments", "Orthographic Projection", "Working Drawings", "Fasteners, Threads, Bolts and Nuts, etc", "Shop Terms, Tools, Machines, etc", "Isometric and Oblique Projection", "Machine Sketching", "Perspective", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on technical drawing and drafting. This book was first published in 1915.
