Details

Each of these four volumes is an independent exposition on its subject matter. The books are similar in size and general character, however, the contents are different. The mechanisms within are are grouped into chapters according to their general types. Together with the complete index, this arrangement by function makes it very simple to find the class of movement desired, enabling the reader to compare mechanisms that are similar in purpose but different in design. The descriptions and illustrations of Ingenious Mechanisms are meant to stick to the basics, which keeps the reader from wasting time on irrelevant details. Readers are told in concise and plain terms what each mechanism consists of, how it operates, and the inherent features that make it especially useful to learn about.

The particular mechanisms have been selected because they have stood the test of actual practice. Among the mechanisms described and illustrated by working diagrams are: cam applications and special cam designs; intermittent motions from gears and cams; interlocking devices; valve diagrams; reversing mechanisms of special design; tripping or stop mechanisms; drives of crank type for reciprocating driven members; feeding mechanisms and auxiliary devices; feeding and ejecting mechanisms; and many, many more.
