A reference guide to the basics of mechanical engineering covers such topics as measurement and inspection, threads, drilling, and reaming, tapping, and milling cutters.
Machinery's Handbook Pocket Companion is designed for anyone in the machine trades for whom convenient access to just the most basic data is at a premium. Extremely concise yet authoritative, this invaluable tool draws on the wealth of tables, charts, and text in the Machinery's Handbook, 30th Edition. Much of the subject matter is reorganized, distilled, or simplified to enhance this book's usability and to keep its bulk down. Both practitioners and students will find the Pocket Companion to be a convenient ready-reference to keep nearby while working on the shop or factory floor or learning the fundamentals in the school lab. While it serves as a complementary text, this book does not replace the Handbook.
Unrivalled in its coverage and unique in its hands-on approach, this guide to the design and construction of scientific apparatus is essential reading for every scientist and student of engineering, and physical, chemical, and biological sciences. Covering the physical principles governing the operation of the mechanical, optical and electronic parts of an instrument, new sections on detectors, low-temperature measurements, high-pressure apparatus, and updated engineering specifications, as well as 400 figures and tables, have been added to this edition. Data on the properties of materials and components used by manufacturers are included. Mechanical, optical, and electronic construction techniques carried out in the lab, as well as those let out to specialized shops, are also described. Step-by-step instruction supported by many detailed figures, is given for laboratory skills such as soldering electrical components, glassblowing, brazing, and polishing.
A concise yet completely authoritative ready-reference which draws its content largely from Machinery's Handbook. Some of the subject matter has been reorganized, distilled, or simplified to increase its usefulness while serving as a handy and more portable complement to Machinery's Handbook.

Jetzt sehen die Glaubenssätze von Millionen Diätessern, Bodybuildern und Trainingsfreaks alt aus „Zu dick“, „nicht muskulös genug“, „keine Ausdauer“ – Unzufriedenheit mit dem eigenen Körper ist weit verbreitet und leider oft berechtigt. Viele Abnehmtipps fruchten jedoch nicht und enden in Resignation. Heißt das, dass es keine sinnvollen Regeln für den perfekten Body gibt? Nein, die Regeln müssen nur neu geschrieben werden, und genau das hat sich „Der 4-Stunden-Körper“ vorgenommen. Wer allerdings nur auf die Willenskraft und Leidensbereitschaft seiner Leser baut, scheitert in aller Regel. Deswegen lautet das Motto von Timothy Ferriss: Smart abnehmen und effizient trainieren. Lernen sie, welche minimalen Maßnahmen ein Maximum an Ergebnissen bringen – durch präzise Informationen über die Funktionsweise unseres Körpers und praktische Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen!
