Pounding Out The Profits: A Century Of American Invention: The Development And Manufacture Of Crank-Actuated Open-Die Power Forging Hammers Douglas Freund

S&H $5.00

A well researched and written history of the development of the mechanical power hammer; including the history of the major manufacturers; hundreds of illustrations including patent drawings; advertising engravings and over 250 B&W photographs. This is a case study of industrial technological product focusing on one particular product -- it is NOT intended as a "how to" book and offers no information on power hammer operations and techniques. But there are some very rare photos and ads that have been gathered and reproduced here; covering almost every U.S. manufacturer.
