Title: Public Domain books
Post by: binarycortex on April 07, 2009, 10:36:37 AM
I found these almost by accident in my travels through the tubes that make up the interweb. As I was trying to learn more about clocks and clockmaking I found a few books digitzed by google that are now in the public domain, so I thought I would share. The gear book was the most helpful to me. I hope these can help someone else as well.

The biggest help with drawing gears was this one: American machinist gear book By Charles Hays Logue, Reginald Trautschold (http://books.google.com/books?id=GPNKAAAAMAAJ&printsec=frontcover)
The next one has a chapter (ch. 10) on gear trains: Elements of mechanism By Peter Schwamb, Allyne Litchfield Merrill (http://books.google.com/books?id=yL9IAAAAMAAJ&printsec=frontcover#PPA151,M1)
And the last one I found is self explanitory: Watch and clock making By David Glasgow (http://books.google.com/books?id=9wUFAAAAQAAJ&printsec=frontcover)
