This illustrated guide from 1903 will intrigue history buffs, small-scale farmers, and armchair gardeners alike.
Originally published in the early 1900s, this classic, comprehensive handbook was referred to by young engineers as they prepared for their licensing examinations. In addition to several hundred actual questions and answers that were given as part of many exams, Farm Engines and How to Run Them fully describes every part of a farm engine and boiler, giving complete directions for the safe and economical management of both. Included are chapters on farm engine economy, with special attention to traction and gasoline farm engines, and a chapter on the science of successful threshing.
The book abounds with precision artwork and cutaway illustrations showing the different parts of a boiler and engine, and nearly every make of traction engine – including those made by Case, Nichols and Shepard, and Buffalo Pitts. Farm Engines and How to Run Them will appeal to everyone from farm and vehicle enthusiasts to students of industrial technology and agricultural history.
James H. Stephenson was a mechanical engineer and author of several self-educational books on the subject of tractor farming and traction engineering.
