$1.25 THE WALSCHAERT AND OTHER MODERN RADIAL VALVE GEARS FOR
LOCOMOTIVES. By WM. W. Wood.
If you would thoroughly understand the Walschaert Valve Gear you should possess a
copy of this book, as the author takes the plainest form of a steam engine—a stationary
engine in the rough, that will only turn its crank in one direction and from it builds
up—with the reader's help—a modern locomotive equipped with the Walschaert
Valve Gear, complete. The points discussed are clearly illustrated; two large folding
plates that show the positions of the valves of both inside or outside admission type, as
well as the links and other parts of the gear when the crank is at nine different points
in its revolution, are especially valuable in making the movement clear. These employ
sliding cardboard models which are contained in a pocket in the cover.
The book is divided into five general divisions, as follows: 1. Analysis of the gear.
2. Designing and erecting the gear. 3. Advantages of the gear. 4. Questions and
answers relating to the Walschaert Valve Gear. 5. Setting valves with the Wal-
schaert Valve Gear; the three primary types of locomotive valve motion; modern
radial valve gears other than the Walschaert; the Hobart All-free Valve and Valve
Gear, with questions and answers on breakdowns; the Baker-Pilliod Valve Gear; the
Improved Baker-Pilliod Valve Gear, with questions and answers on breakdowns.
The questions with full answers given will be especially valuable to firemen and engi-
neers in preparing for an examination for promotion. 245 pages.

$1.50 MACHINE-SHOP PRACTICE
AMERICAN TOOL MAKING AND INTERCHANGEABLE MANUFACTURING.
By J. V. WOODWORTH.
A "shoppy” book, containing no theorizing, no problematical or experimental devices,
there are no badly proportioned and impossible diagrams, no catalogue cuts, but a
valuable collection of drawings and descriptions of devices, the rich fruits of the author's
own experience. In its 500-odd pages the one subject only, Tool Making, and what-
ever relates thereto, is dealt with. The work stands without a rival. It is a complete
practical treatise on the art of American Tool Making and system of interchangeable
manufacturing as carried on to-day in the United States. In it are described and
illustrated all of the different types and classes of small tools, fixtures, devices, and
special appliances which are in general use in all machine-manufacturing and metal-
working establishments where economy, capacity, and interchangeability in the pro-
duction of machined metal parts are imperative. The science of jig making is exhaust-
ively discussed, and particular attention is paid to drill jigs, boring, profiling and milling fixtures and other devices in which the parts to be machined are located and fastened within the contrivances. All of the tools, fixtures, and devices illustrated and described have been or are used for the actual production of work, such as parts of drill presses, lathes, patented machinery, typewriters, electrical apparatus, mechanical appliances, brass goods, composition parts, mould products, sheet metal articles, dropforgings, jewelry, watches, medals, coins, etc. 531 pages.

THE WHOLE FIELD OF MECHANICAL MOVEMENTS
COVERED BY MR. HISCOX'S TWO BOOKS
We publish two books by Gardner D. Hiscox that will keep you from "inventing" things that have been done before, and suggest ways of doing things that you have not thought of before. Many a man spends time and money, pondering over some mechanical problem, only to learn, after he has solved the problem, that the same thing has been accomplished and put in practice by others long before. Time and money spent in an effort to accomplish what has already been accomplished are time and money LOST. The whole field of mechanics, every known mechanical movement, and practically every device is covered by these two books. If the thing you want has been invented, it is illustrated in them. If it hasn't been invented, then you'il find in them the nearest things to what you want, some movements or devices that will apply in your case, perhaps; or which will give you a key from which to work. No book or set of books ever published is of more real value to the
'Inventor, Draftsman, or practical Mechanic than the two volumes described below. MECHANICAL MOVEMENTS, POWERS, AND DEVICES. By GARDNER D.
This is a collection of 1,890 engravings of different mechanical motions and appliances,
accompanied by appropriate text, making it a book of great value to the inventor,
the draftsman, and to all readers with mechanical tastes. The book is divided into
eighteen sections or chapters, in which the subject-matter is classified under the follow-
ing heads: Mechanical Powers; Transmission of Power; Measurement of Power;
Steam Power; Air Power Appliances; Electric Power and Construction; Navigation
and Roads; Gearing; Motion and Devices; Controlling Motion; Horological;
Mining; Mill and Factory Appliances; Construction and Devices; Drafting Devices;
Miscellaneous Devices, etc. 12th edition. 400 octavo pages. Price.
$2.50 MECHANICAL APPLIANCES, MECHANICAL MOVEMENTS AND NOVELTIES
OF CONSTRUCTION. By GARDNER D. Hiscox.

first volume, which is more elementary in character, this volume contains illustrations
and descriptions of many combinations of motions and of mechanical devices and
appliances found in different lines of machinery, each device being shown by a line drawing with a description showing its working parts and the method of operation. From the multitude of devices described and illustrated might be mentioned, in passing, such items as conveyors and elevators, Prony brakes, thermometers, various types of boilers, solar engines, oil-fuel burners, condensers, evaporators, Corliss and other valve gears, governors, gas engines, water motors of various descriptions, air ships, motors and dynamos, automobile and motor bicycles, railway lock signals, car couplers, link and gear motions, ball bearings, breech block mechanism for heavy guns, and a large accumulation of others of equal importance. 1,000 specially made engravings. 396 octavo pages. 2d Edition.

THE MODERN MACHINIST. By JOHN T. USHER.
This is a book showing, by plain description and by profuse engravings made expressly
for the work, all that is best, most advanced, and of the highest efficiency in modern
machine-shop practice, tools, and implements, showing the way by which and through
which, as Mr. Maxim says, “American machinists have become and are the finest me-
chanics in the world.". Indicating as it does, in every line, the familiarity of the author
with every detail of daily experience in the shop, it cannot fail to be of service to any
man practically connected with the shaping or finishing of metals.
There is nothing experimental or visionary about the book, all devices being in actua)
use and giving good results. It might be called a compendium of shop methods,
showing a variety of special tools and appliances which will give new ideas to many
mechanics, from the superintendent down to the man at the bench. It will be found
a valuable edition to any machinist's library, and should be consulted whenever a
new or difficult job is to be done, whether it is boring, milling, turning, or planing,
as they are all treated in a practical manner. Fifth edition. 320 pages.250 illustra-
“ SHOP KINKS." By ROBERT GRIMSHAW.
A book of 400 pages and 222 illustrations, being entirely different from any other book on machine-shop practice.
