Re: looking for machinery reference book recommendations


Peter – Thank you for the suggestion. I should have been a little more specific. Though there is some farm machinery in the collection, I am primarily looking for sources dealing with metal-working. It is likely that most of what we are looking at was used in the railroad shop here in town. Examples include a drill press, a metal roller, engines rigged to drive belts. . . It’s possible that some of this equipment was used later on, perhaps 1950s or 60s as well.
