1800 Mechanical Movements, Devices and Appliances

Pt 363

1800 Mechanical Movements, Devices and Appliances… This looks like a cool book –

A fascinating compendium of early-20th-century mechanical devices, this expansive work ranges from basic hooks and levers to complex machinery used in steam, motive, hydraulic, air, and electric power, navigation, gearing, clocks, mining, and construction. More than 1,800 engravings include simple illustrations and detailed cross-sections.

Thanks Kenneth!

  1. This book is okay. I prefer “507 Mechanical Movements”, it’s a little more “atomic” — less full projects and more fundamental mechanisms like linkages and such — you really have to use your imagination, because the accompanying text is quite spare.

  2. 1800 was first published in 1899 so is out of copyright. which means that it is legal to download it for free, there is online version here: http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4579860
    I’ve not checked that torrent, has anyone got any other online sources?

  3. I have a similar book, "507 Mechanical Movements" (the one mentioned by John). I love it. While my interests have always lain more on the electrical side of things, seeing so many unique and interesting ways to translate mechanical movement is really inspiring. Flipping through that book always makes me think: "What would happen if I put these two mechanisms together". It’s a very nice book to have on hand.
