Through the use
of simplified, concise drawings, here are 507 of the small components
which make up complex machinery in areas as diverse as C.R. Otis's
safety stop for the elevator, Pickering's governor for a steam engine,
Arnold's escapement for watches, compound parallel rules, piston rod
guides, the grasshopper beam engine and a self-recording level for
surveyors. The list goes on and on in fascinating variety, with each
movement explained and illustrated.
