Format: Paperback
I dig model engineering (Brit-speak for "home shop machinist"), and there is a lot to dig in Greenly's 1915 classic Model Engineering. I bought it from Lindsay Books a few years ago, and I just love it. What's it about? Well, from the editor's preface:

"This book is the work of a thoroughly practical engineer possessing unequaled experience of model making, and it is addressed to the amateur desirous of learning how mechanical models, chiefly prime movers, operate and how they can be made in the home workshop. It fully describes the tool equipment necessary, shows how to use the tools and how to execute the numerous handcraft processes involved, and then enters into the details of steam, petrol and electric models; it shows the functions of the various parts, and explains, step by step, the actual amateur workshop methods of building them up, the reader being taken easily and gradually through the construction of ever part and the assembling of the complete models, these including boilers steam engines, internal-combustion engines, steam locomotives, electric locomotives, permanent ways, power hammers, cannon, etc., etc. ..."

Chapters include: equipping a model engineer's workshop; the lathe and its tooling; the various processes used in lathe work; model steam engine cylinders and their types; connecting rods, bearings, eccentrics and engine cranks; steam engine valve and reversing gears; boiler design and construction; engine and boiler valves & fittings; force pumps, injectors and gauges; firing model boilers. It shows you how to make a model 1-in. by 1-in. vertical steam engine; a high-speed compound condensing engine with coil boiler; a 1/2-in.

This book is a reprint from the 1915 original. It may seem outdated for the modern reader, nevertheless it has a lot of information in almost every subject regarding small steam engines both stationary and locomotives. This is a must for the model engineer.
