    507 Mechanical Movements

    This may have been discussed before on the forum but I can't find a reference to it. If so, my apologies.

    If you enjoy designing mechanisms, you should be aware of a book entitled 507 Mechanical Movements. Written in 1868 by Henry T. Brown, it's a compendium of all sorts of mechanisms, both common and ingenious. The book is available in pdf form on the web but this...

    507 Mechanical Movements

    website includes animations of some of the entries.

    Next time you have to design something, pack a lunch and browse for a while.

    That is nice. I also picked up a copy of this book https://books.google.com/books?id=Mw...Hiscox&f=false from Lee Valley a few years back on sale. A fascinating book to read through.

    Another good set of reference books is a four volume set entitled "Ingenious Mechanisms For Inventors and Designers". These books take the state of the art mechanisms and show how they are used in various industrial applications. I have a set of these, and I haven't even read them all yet.
    On another note, back in the 60's, when I was starting out in the world of tech, I was reading a monthly periodical called "NASA Tech Briefs". Talk about an influence on a young mind!

    Thank you for the link to this. Many of the items are somewhat a duplication but the concepts and ideas can prove to be quite useful.
