    Still available in hard copy, which makes it much easier to read several thousand pages full of small engravings. It’s slightly mis-named, since about 75% of it is really Farmer Joe era hints for mechanical DIY stuff…for instance quite a few tweaks for the Model T Ford. This is a *GOOD* read for anyone mechanically or even historically inclined. However, it contains zero high tech stuff from the early 1900s, which instead is contained in Popular Mechanic’s ‘Shop Notes’ (high school level) and especially ‘American Mechanical Dictionary’ by Knight (college level), also available from LeeValley.com
