  • A Brief Illustrated History of Machines and Mechanismsby Emilio Bautista Paz; Marco Ceccarelli; Javier Echavarri Otero; Jose Luis Munoz Sanz

    Springer 2010; US$ 99.00

    This work deals with mechanical manufacturing processes in history, examined through the machines associated with those processes. A tool is only included if it is part of a machine tool, with devices made up of moving parts. Once the analytical field has been marked out, the chosen descriptive method is basically graphic. This historical compendium... more...

  • Cam Design Handbookby Harold Rothbart

    McGraw-Hill Education 2003; US$ 157.50

    Packed with hundreds of detailed illustrations! THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO CAM TECHNOLOGY!
