The watchmakers' lathe: its use and abuse. A study of the lathe in its ... By Ward L. Goodrich

This is another book I found online that may be helpful to other members. You can download it freely as a pdf, its copyright expired and it is now public domain so Google scanned it. To save a copy click on the icon that looks like an arrow with PDF next to it in the upper right.

Dear Giuseppe,

When you click on Jim's link it goes to the google page.

There is a yellow line near the top of the page. Follow that yellow line all the way to the right. Right above the end of the yellow line you will see the arrow and the letters "PDF".

When I clicked the link, it went to another screen that asked for a type of password. Once I entered that password, I was able to access the pdf file where I found over 250 pages of information.

Hope this is of further help,

Debbie

Smile

Dear Debbie,

as you can see from the attached document on the Goggle web page we can't see any PDF download indication.
It is probably due to the different Google rules.
I'm afraid but I think the only way to have it is to send me a copy through an e-mail message.

Thank again.

I have the same google page as Giuseppe. No place to download the PDF file. Maybe a Mac vs Windows difference?

Some countries are not allowed to view the pdf's due to copyright laws according to google.

Jim,
I found that book last week but couldn't download it then. Today, after entering the password the file downloaded successfully.
Thank you for the link,
RR

I went chasing this down and thought at first that Google had eliminated the PDF download feature. At least I couldn't find it easily. I did find some software that allowed me to download the book and assemble the pages into a PDF file on my own computer, which I did.

I put this at: this link on my website, for anyone who wants it.
It is big (283 pages, 65 megabytes).

The link to the google book itself is: right here

AND, now after checking these links, I see at the upper right of the google link, a thing that looks like a gear. Clicking the arrow next to the gear produces a menu which includes "download PDF" and has you type in some text to prove you are a human. Well slap me silly, how about that!
