Gears in one form or another are a part of most mechanisms, but they are by no means as simple as they may appear. This book explains simply, clearly and comprehensively the underlying theory involved and, in its second part, how to cut gears on a lathe or milling machine. Explanations and reasons for all conventional types of gears are clearly set out in this book together with useful tables and machinery techniques to form an invaluable reference work for anyone dealing with machinery. It covers all the questions raised by enthusiasts who have watched the author demonstrating gear-cutting techniques at exhibitions throughout Britain, where his advice on engineering matters has been constantly sought.
Gears and Gear Cutting Paperback edition by Ivan R. Law
Ivan Law is a very experienced and much-respected engineer who will be known to many readers for, particularly, his lucid and practical demonstrations and explanations over many years at the annual International Model Show.
This book follows on from the same author's introduction to the Mini-Lathe (Workshop Practice Series No. 43) and presents a series of projects which are intended to extend the versatility of this little machine and specific tools such as the radius turning attachment, the tailstock and the dividing head.
A practical guide to running three-phase equipment on single-phase electricity supplies. Often, model engineers buy industrial workshop equipment which usually require a three-phase electricity supply. Although ready-built phase converters are available, they can often cost as much or even more than the equipment purchased.
An introduction to the fascinating world of horology for the complete beginner. This book explains the terminology of the clockmaker and provides general details of clock construction including layout of wheels and escarpments, all of which are fully described and illustrated.
This title, which replaced the very popular Electroplating for the Amateur, will be of value to model engineers and small workshops wishing to plate with any of the customary metals using simple equipment.
The principles underlying radial work on a metalworking lathe are explained in depth in this book. It covers the methods that can be adopted: from simple applications without specialised equipment to the use of a semi-universal dividing head and a rotary table.
This book assumes no previous experience and using the medium of twelve lathe turning projects will lead prospective model engineers through all of the basic techniques needed to tackle ambitious projects. All of the projects are extensively illustrated and full working drawings accompany the text.
A comprehensive introduction to the milling machine, assuming no previous experience, by one of Model Engineers' Workshop magazine's leading authorities. Eight projects lead prospective model engineers through all of the techniques involved; each project is extensively illustrated with step-by-step photographs and workshop drawings.
Contains a comprehensive range of mathematical data which is required in the metalworking workshop and by those designing a wide range of engineered items, tools and machines. This book provides in a single concise volume that is otherwise only available by reference to many different sources.
