Are you interested by the moving mechanics often concealed from the eye in engines and machines?
After retiring from a long profession in scientific machinery style, author Raymond Levy found a renewed interest in the construction and mechanics of fundamental wooden apparatuses. Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood is Levy's remarkable collection of Do It Yourself wooden mechanical projects. It demonstrates how you can use wood to build a variety of appealing systems that whiz and whir, bob and flip.
Choose from a range of projects that are motivated by timeless devices of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, including:
While most other mechanical projects conceal the motions inside, these projects are developed to perform their mechanical stunts with marbles that move, wheels that spin, as well as pistons that pump to the pleasure of the folks who crank the manages.
With detailed instructions, ratings of how-to illustrations, and draftsman-quality illustrations, these wooden designs are marvelously simple to make and take pleasure in.
