Dies: Their Construction and Use for the Modern Working of Sheet Metals.

A most useful book, and one which should be in the hands of all engaged in the press working
of metals; treating on the Designing, Constructing, and Use of Tools, Fixtures and Devices,
together with the manner in which they should be used in the Power Press, for the cheap and
rapid production of the great variety of sheet-metal articles now in use. It designed
as a guide to the production of sheet-metal parts at the minimum of cost with the
maximum of output. The hardening and tempering of Press tools and the classes of work
which may be produced to the best advantage by the use of dies in the power press are fully
treated. Its 515 illustrations show dies, press fixtures and sheet metal working devices, the
descriptions of which are so clear and practical that all metal-working mechanics will be able
to understand how to design, construct and use them. Many of the dies and press fixtures
treated were either constructed by the author or under his supervision. Others were built by
skilful mechanics and are in use in large sheet-metal establishments and machine shops.

Funches, Dies and Tools for Manufacturing in Presses. By J. V. Wood

This work is a companion volume to the author's elementary work entitled “Dies: Their
Construction and Use." It does not go into the details of die-making to the extent of the
author's previous book, but gives a comprehensive review of the field of operations carried on
by presses. A large part of the information given has been drawn from the author's personal
experience. It might well be terned an Encyclopedia of Die- Making, Punch-Making. Die
Sinking, Sheet Metal Working, and Making of Special Tools, Sub-presses, Devices and Mechani-
cal Combinations for Punching, Cutting, Bending, Forming, Piercing, Drawing, Compressing
and Assembling Sheet-Metal Parts, and also Articles of other Materials in Machine Tools.

Drop Forging, Die-Sinking and Machine-Forming of Steel. By J. V.

This is a practical treatise on Modern Shop Practice, Processes, Methods, Machine Tools,
and Details treating on the Hot and Cold Machine-Forming of Steel and Iron into

Shapes: together with Tools, Dies, and Machinery involved in the manufacture of Duplicate
Forgings and Interchangeable Hot and Cold Pressed Parts from Bar and Sheet Metal. This
book fills a demand of long standing for information regarding drop-forgings, die-sinking and
machine-forming of steel and the shop practice involved, as it actually exists in the modern
drop-forging shop. The processes of die-sinking and force-making, which are thoroughly
described and illustrated in this admirable work, are rarely to be found explained in such a
clear and concise manner as is here set forth. The process of die-sinking relates to the engrav-
ing or sinking of the female or lower dies, such as are used for drop-forgings, hot and cold
machine-forging, swedging, and the press working of metals. The process of force-making
relates to the engraving or raising of the male or upper dies used in producing the lower dies
for the press-forming and machine-forging of duplicate parts of metal.
In addition to the arts above mentioned the book contains explicit information regarding the
drop-forging and hardening plants, designs, conditions, equipment, drop hammers, forging
machines, etc., machine forging, hydraulic forging, autogenous welding and shop practice.
The book contains eleven chapters, and the information contained in these chapters just
what will prove most valuable to the forged-metal worker. All operations described in the
work are thoroughly illustrated by means of perspective half-tones and outline sketches of
the machinery employed. 300 detailed illustrations. Price.

Linear Perspective Self-Taught. By HERMAN T. C. KRAUS.

This work gives the theory and practice of linear perspective, as used in architectural, engineer. ing and mechanical drawings. Persons taking up the study of the subject by themselves will be able, by the use of the instruction given, to readily grasp the subject, and by reasonable practice become good perspective draftsmen. The arrangement of the book is good; the plate is on the left-hand, while the descriptive text follows on the opposite page, so as to be readily referred to. The drawings are on sufficiently large scale to show the work clearly and are plainly figured. There is included a self-explanatory chart which gives all information necessary for the thorough understanding of perspective. This chart alone is worth many times over the price of the book. 2d Revised and Enlarged Edition.

Self-Taught Mechanical Drawing and Elementary Machine Design. By

F. L. SYLVESTER, M.E., Draftsman, with additions by ERIK OBERG, associate
editor of "Machinery.'
This is a practical treatise on Mechanical Drawing and Machine Design, comprising the first
principles of geometric and mechanical drawing, workshop mathematics, mechanics, strength
of materials and the calculations and design of machine details. The author's aim has been
to adapt this treatise to the requirements of the practical mechanic and young draftsman
and to present the matter in as clear and concise a manner as possible. To meet the demands
of this class of students, practically all the important elements of machine design have been
dealt with, and in addition algebraic formulas have been explained, and the elements of
trigonometry treated in the manner best suited to the needs of the practical man. The book
is livilelinto 20 chapters, and in arranging the material, mechanical drawing, pure and simnle,
has been taken up first, as a thorough understanding of the principles of representing objects
facilitates the further study of mechanical subjects. This is followed by the mathematics
necessary for the solution of the problems in machine design which are presented later, and a
practical introduction to theoretical mechanics and the strength of materials. The various
elements entering into machine design, such as cams, gears, sprocket-wheels, cone pulleys,
bolts, screws, couplings, clutches, shafting and fly-wheels, have been treated in such a way
as to make possible the use of the work as a text-book for a continuous course of study. It
is easily comprehended and assimilated even by students of limited previous training. 330
pages, 215 engravings. Price
