This book is a fairly unique collection of definitions and explanations of terms that are used in the home workshop. Most definitions are for common items but a rigorous definition is sometimes useful. Some of them relate to terms that were in common use but are now rare so this will aid in interpretation of old plans and magazine articles. Amateur engineers have long needed a book like this
Excellent collection of terms and phrases relating to model engineering - I supply laser cut parts to modelers but am not an engineer myself so this going to be a useful resource and help me understand some of the terminology!
Essential reading and essential piece of workshop equipment for the homeshop machinist and model engineer, especially those new to the hobby. Definitions are clear and concise. For anyone drowning in a sea of technical jargon and assumed insider knowledge, this book is a lifesaver.
