J. S. Zerbe's PRACTICAL MECHANICS FOR BOYS presents a complete education in every dimension of no-nonsense, hands-on shop work that is written in approachable language appropriate to both the novice and the seasoned craftsmen. In addition to chapters exploring a variety of tools and their use, the process of designing, laying out and completing projects, fundamental devices like lacings, gears, valves and clutches, the properties of materials (elasticity, torsion, conductivity, etc.), and the basics of drafting and mechanical power, the author also shares insights on the process of becoming an inventor – turning ideas into objects, building models and prototypes, securing a patent and more. Over 100 original illustrations. Also contains 16 handy tables, dozens of formulas for making your own glues, cements, polishes, etc., and a glossary of more than 300 important mechanical terms.
