Things that are Usually Wrong The Machine Shop Wisdom of Professor John Sweet 1906

cover photo

These are thoughts and words of wisdom from Professor John Edson Sweet, one of the great thinkers and writers on engineering during the nineteenth century, published in his 74th year. Subjects range from the cranks of steam engines to the design of shapers, the faceplates of lathes and a huge amount more. The writing style seems archaic today, but the basic ideas are as strong now as they were one hundred plus years ago. Should be of interest to anyone in the machine shop.
