9781330318652: Rough and Tumble Engineering: A Book of Instructions for Operators of Farm and Traction Engines (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Rough and Tumble Engineering: A Book of Instructions for Operators of Farm and Traction Engines

Don't deceive yourself with the idea that what you get out of this will be merely book learning. What is said in this will be plain, unvarnished, practical facts. It is not the author's intention to use any scientific terms, but plain everyday field talk. There will be a number of things you will not find in this book, but nothing will be left out that would be of practical value to you. You will not find any geometrical figures made up of circles, curves, angles, letters and figures in a vain effort to make you understand the principle of an eccentric. While it is all very nice to know these things, it is not necessary, and the putting of them in this book would defeat the very object for which it was intended. Be content with being a good, practical, everyday engineer, and all these things will come in time.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 186 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.Excerpt from Rough and Tumble Engineering: A Book of Instructions for Operators of Farm and Traction EnginesIn placing this book before the public the author wishes it understood that it is not his intention to produce a scientific work on engineering. Such a book would be valuable only to engineers of large stationary engines. In a nice engine room nice theories and scientific calculations arc practical. This book is intended for engineers of farm and traction engines, rough and tumble engineers, who have everything in their favor today, and tomorrow are in mud holes, who with the same engine do eight horse work one clay and sixteen horse work the next day. Reader, the author has had all these experiences and you will have them, but dont get discouraged. You can get through them to your entire satisfaction. Dont conclude that all you need to do is to read this book. It will not make an engineer of you. But read it carefully, use good judgment and common sense, do as it tells you. and my word for it. in one month, you, for all practical purposes, will be a better engineer than four-fifths of the so-called engineers today, who think what they dont know would not Dalce much of a book.
