The factory technology trail. Who held it? What was it, and where was the trail of technology started? Writing this book has been an inside look at the remarkable history of tools, men, laws, trade, knowledge and education systems, government and more. It is like a Grand Tour of the process and methods of industry. This e-book book is filled with many obscure and unusual stories, techniques, and methods. In it, mechanical industry has been traced back to it's causes, the philosophy, and the science which made it all possible.
Manufacturing is the art of taking a raw material and producing a tradable commodity. Using machines to provide man with the treasures and tools of a civilized society. Read about the inventors, philosophers, and mechanical thinkers across europe, and america that made it all happen. I've been furnishing people for a few years now with innovative wood products, jigs and information. I have over 2,800 woodworkers who subscribe to my hardwood directory and follow-up news. The information in this book has been collected from the research of hundreds of books, letters, and historical and technical writings . Many of these enlightening grains of information, were the result of hours of repetitive research from old books, many of them hundreds of years old. This is not another technical book, but a history book of the men, the economics, the politics, and the methods that changed history. The world had a mentality of waste. Economics forced them to use their heads to work smarter, not work harder. They didn't realize that much of what they were performing was time honored, artisan type, one at a time manufacturing. After extensive research, there is no doubt about the role of manufacturing. Manufacturing and trade have been said by many scholars, to be the only solution for nations to prosper. Historically, manufacturing (implementing natural resources) and trade have sustained society, banks, health care, business, armies, and governments. Read the who, when and what the methods were that changed the economies of the world and influenced our modern culture. Methods is a history book of the men, the economics, the politics, and the methods that changed history. Here are some of the chapters included in the book:
When one generation becomes boldly reassured, it can often fail to transfer the knowledge vital for its survival. We only need to look at the pyramids, florence, incas, babylon, and stonehenge. Society actually has lost technological knowledge of many things throughout history. Are you concerned about your taxes consistently rising? Can health care be more efficient? Are you wondering why a traffic ticket cost upwards of 150? Does your state tax keep rising? Do your health care taxes keep going up? The source of all of these problems can be laid directly in correlation with the lose of our tax base of manufacturing jobs. Learning history , and elusive stories and techniques can fertilize the imagination and give confidence, respect, and meaning for the use of machine tools. This was told to me by an 85 year old machine shop teacher who managed a South American factory. But the real trailblazers who discovered mass production and precision tools are rarely taught in conventional books and schools. Training, and classes are not always a solution, people need historical inspiration. They are removed of the details of industry that are rarely mentioned.
This book book describes the men who knew this 300 years ago. Here's more facts...... Just recently professor emeritus of political science at the University of Tampere in Finland said research says that intelligence is the largest factor behind economic success. Prices go up, and manufacturing jobs go away. Taxes go up..... Utility cost go up.... Health care goes up.... Traffic tickets increase..... State taxes rise because of job loses .... The source of all of these problems can be laid directly in correlation with the lose of our tax base created by manufacturing jobs. Like stated above by the professor emeritus of political science intelligence is the largest factor training, and classes are not always a solution. People need historical inspiration. They are removed from the details of industry that are rarely mentioned. More about this book... I have never known an ambitious, highly skilled artisan, or tradesman, who didn't know his history. History can give you many role models to inspire ambition and integrity. Our education process can be a disservice to omit profound history in the practice of any occupation about the ingenious machines and methods.
This e-book contains a bibliography, and complete word search capabilities. This book covers the history of machines and culture responsible for the largest and fastest economic boom in the history of the world. It explains what, where, when, why, and how the industrial revolution came about. The important science, social, economic, and political aspects are studied here also. It is not a course in machine technology, economics, or science, but goes to the historical root of matters that gave birth to manufacturing. Machines can duplicate, and people began to realize that. It soon became wiser to build machines than to build consumables, so machine makers began showing up onto the scene. Machines can be made to make things. Their popularity became very significant to engineers. Engineers soon put more value into machines than into common products that were sellable but did not duplicate. Engineers also begin to look at machines for their incredible abilities. They could be arranged to duplicate parts consistently, and abundantly. The manufacture of mechanical devices was achieved by an assortment of new scientific and mechanical processes. Much of the e-book is like a technical manual for manufacturing. It is for metal workers, engineers, and woodworkers who want to know the history and the techniques of and for mass production. Knowing history is like armor for any craftsman. It gives a craftsman his confidence. We have very limited texts and useful material concerning industry. Also, civilization without history ceases to have identity. Without identity there is no solid purpose; without purpose, creativity can wither. Learning history, and elusive stories and techniques can fertilize the imagination and give confidence, respect, and meaning for the use of machine tools. I have never known an ambitious, highly skilled artisan, or tradesman, who didn't know his history. History gives us many role models to inspire ambition and integrity, but few know about these great men. What role did economics play in the industrial revolution. The book explores things for example; how do you systematize a production shop? Want to know what are the most common mistakes made in modern metal, wood, and manufacturing shops? What are the traits of a successful metalworker, or woodworker? One trait is an undivided, unshakable concentration of completing masterful work. See more at WOODJIG.COM
Many experts say that the most important tool in the shop is the table saw. It is the choice of the majority of the experts. One of the best ways to compliment it is to build a cross cut box, or sled.
If you can you might need to get an older saw with less horsepower or a sliding saw to do cutting off and a table saw for ripping. The table saw will last longer and use less electricity! A good carbide blade should last a long time, but needs to be cleaned often by soaking it in soapy water. It gets a gum build-up on it and burns your wood because it is using more friction and not cutting.
Speaking of cutting- in the tool and die shops they use band saw blades that are soldered right on the band saw. Each band saw has a welder on the side and the blades are bought in 50 foot packs. Most metal cutting saws have a crank to adjust the speed and metal cuts at much lower speeds. You can cut wood pretty well at lower speeds if you have a metal saw. They also have engine lathes which are the same thing as a wood lathe, only they have more features. Most drill presses have a foot crank or a hand crank to adjust their speed.
