CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $24.99. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

This book covers more than a century of tractor making and features tractors that are regarded with something like affection - Case, Fordson, Massey-Ferguson, Minneapolis-Moline, Versatile - they are all here and many others. Tractors of all shapes, sizes, ages, colors and types - they are here in all their resplendent glory. Illustrated throughout in full color.

About the Author:
Jim Glastonbury lives in the agricultural south west of England where tractors are as commonplace as cars, so it is not surprising that he has been keenly interested in them from an early age. In fact he could hardly wait until he was old enough to drive a tractor himself. Not satisfied with this, the next step was to write about them.

Originally published by Popular Mechanics in 1941, this classic manual is a testament to the ingenuity and dedication of American craftsmen. The collected projects, written by various craftsmen, demonstrate how to build a 10-inch thickness planer, a “swing saw” (or cut-off saw), and a hand-built hydraulic press, in addition to drill presses, jigsaws, sanders, bending brakes, band saws, a wood lathe, and many other useful machines. All of these machines are built with simple and highly available materials, and every project is accompanied by the original instructions, illustrations, and measured drawings. In addition, this vintage reprint offers its readers a unique look into a period in American history—when materials and labor were stretched thin, and American craftsmen were forced to “bootstrap” solutions out of the bare essentials available to them.

In today's high-tech society, even the most advanced devices and systems are not fail-safe. Tools can break or wear out, batteries can go dead, and all sorts of malfunctions can render the modern conveniences we rely on totally useless. If quick replacements of failed items are not readily available, the ability to improvise and adapt in the workshop suddenly becomes very practical.

James Ballou, author of the best-selling Long-Term Survival in the Coming Dark Age, dramatically expands on the popular home workshop material in his first book to present a "makeshifter's" way of building and repairing things with only a pile of raw or salvaged materials, your hands and your mind. In this fascinating new book, he presents a wide range of unconventional, remarkably creative home workshop skills, including:

  • HOMEMADE TOOLS-Make your own hammers, drills, screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, saws, files, chisels, vises and clamps.
  • EXPEDIENT REPAIRS-Perform sturdy repairs with ordinary glue, tape, cord, wire, dowels, nuts and bolts.
  • MAKESHIFT CONSTRUCTION-Construct all sorts of functional items out of coat hangers, old car parts, 2-by-4s, wooden dowels, nails, rebar, coffee cans.
  • USEFUL PROJECTS-Build a homemade forge out of an old barbecue; handle simple soldering jobs with a road flare; perform quick weld repairs with car batteries, jumper cables and a pair of pliers.

Ballou also gives extensive instruction in makeshift metalworking, practical calculating skills, resourceful salvaging, plus dozens of practical tips for the craftsman or handyman who might need this information in an emergency or who simply enjoys learning about alternative ways to handle home workshop projects.

Many home cooks-and professionals, as well-swear by the tried-and-true implements they've used for years: the Foley Food Mill that works like a charm every time, the manually operated juicer that's a tradition of family breakfasts, the cast iron skillet that's been handed down through the generations. For serious cooks, there's nothing like a familiar implement, a thing that works exactly as you expect it to.

Similarly, most people usually have a library of favorite recipes on which they rely: some passed along from relatives and friends, others from mentors and teachers. These are the recipes cooks return to time and time again, in part because they evoke memories of the people who have enjoyed them and prepared them in the past.

Kitchen Things, by master photographer and respected novelist Richard Snodgrass, celebrates these well-loved objects and recipes and showcases them in an unexpected way-a way that touches upon the science of food, the physics of cooking, the sensory pleasures of eating, and indeed the very nature of life itself.

In his reflections, the author is aided by his patient, persistent and perceptive wife, Marty, and her mother, from whose Western Pennsylvania farmhouse kitchens the objects and recipes were sourced. The gentle, often humorous repartee between the author and these wise and knowing women forms a running narrative throughout the book.
