Since 1898, Model Engineer magazine (originally weekly, now fortnightly) has proved a remarkable source of knowledge for all manner of engineering practices. Its readership has always included many highly experienced engineers, some of considerable eminence, who have answered readers' questions and contributed valuable information in order that everyone the construction and use of machines should be able to extend his scope and skills.
● Lathes and Lathework
● Machine Tools and Accessories
● Electrical Queries
The answer to virtually any engineering problem can be found somewhere in its pages, it is said. Many of the magazine's most helpful nuggets of knowledge have appeared in brief notes or articles, often many years ago, and have never been republished. This book offers a selection of fascinating hints and tips culled from the magazine's wide time-scale (from the 1890s to the 1960s) but as relevant today as when they were first printed. They may save the reader time and possibly money; certainly they will interest and instruct anyone who works with metal.
