Re: American Machinist


This isn't as nice as having the hard copies, but several copies of American Machinist are in Google Books.  They are word search able there.  Here is the link.

I was fortunate enough to win the stack of bound copies of "American Machinist" at the Cabin Fever auction. I had two unexpected finds. The volumes have the name Fred J Miller in gold letters on most of the volumes. A quick google and I found that he was the Editor of American Machinist and the winner of the Gantt Medal in 1930. That makes the volumes a little more special to me.

The second find was that I had issues 1896 to 1906 complete, plus an extra copy of 1896 and 1899. The bindings are rather dog-eared and 1896 is missing a couple pages at the front and back. I can copy those pages to complete the information.

My first preference is trading someone for their duplicates. If no one has trading material, I am willing to sell them, if anyone is interested. They are heavy - American Machinist was a weekly!

Please contact me off-list.
