Re: looking for machinery reference book recommendations

Tom Braun

I am aware of one book (an industrial catalog actually) that might be useful to you, though it mainly deals with chain-driven machinery, sprockets, conveyor belts, speed reducers, transmissions, bucket elevators, and ball bearings, among other misc industrial processing and manufacturing machinery. It is titled “LINK-BELT CATALOG 1050”, and the copyright date can vary; my copy is from 1962, and I have heard about others from the 1950’s. Copies can be found online for around $40.00. Good luck, Tom Braun
