Patterned after volumes in McGraw-Hill's "Time-Saver Standards" series in the architecture program (and Wiley's "Architectural Graphic Standards") and vastly expanding the range of the best-selling "Mechanisms and Mechanical Devices Sourcebook" by Chironis, this major new handbook presents a full array of key machine elements used in a wide range of applications. Filled with thousands of illustrations, it provides a quick-look-up resource of pictorial detail (worth many pages of text) for the busy engineer looking for the right device for the right application all systematically organized for easy access.
