Auto Mechanics

The history of automobiles is not just the story of invention, manufacturing, and marketing; it is also a story of repair. Auto Mechanics opens the repair shop to historical study—for the first time—by tracing the emergence of a dirty, difficult, and important profession. Kevin L. Borg's study spans a century of automotive technology—from the horseless carriage of the late nineteenth century to the "check engine" light of the late twentieth. Drawing from a diverse body of source material, Borg explores how the mechanic’s occupation formed and evolved within the context of broad American fault lines of class, race, and gender and how vocational education entwined these tensions around the mechanic’s unique expertise. He further shows how aspects of the consumer rights and environmental movements, as well as the design of automotive electronics, reflected and challenged the social identity and expertise of the mechanic. In the history of the American auto mechanic, Borg finds the origins of a persistent anxiety that even today accompanies the prospect of taking one's car in for repair.

Practical Blacksmithing  Vol  1

Excerpt from Practical Blacksmithing, Vol. 1: A Collection of Articles Contributed at Different Times by Skilled Workmen to the Columns of the Blacksmith and Wheelwright Although there are numerous legendary accounts of the important position occupied by the blacksmith, and the honors accorded him even at a period as remote in the world's history as the time of King Solomon, strange to relate there is no single work in the language devoted solely to the practice of the blacksmith's art. Occasional chapters on the subject may be found, however, in mechanical books, as well as brief essays in encyclopedias. While fragmentary allusions to this important trade have from time to time appeared in newspapers and magazines, no one has ever attempted anything like an exhaustive work on the subject; perhaps none is possible. This paucity of literature concerning a branch of the mechanic arts, without which other trades would cease to exist from lack of proper tools, cannot be attributed to a want of intelligence on the part of the disciples of Vulcan. It is perfectly safe to assert, that in this respect blacksmiths can hold their own with mechanics in any other branch of industry. From their ranks have sprung many distinguished men.

It should be understood at the outset that more constant attention will be necessary, for the reason that soft coal burns more quickly and will not remain incandescent for so long a time as anthracite coal. During the daytime the attendant will have no dimculty in keeping a steady fire if he is careful to feed the furnace frequently; 'to keep the bottom drafts but slightly open, and to give a liberal feed of air through the air inlet in the furnace-door. Owing to the rapidity of combustion of bituminous coal, it will not be possible to bank up the furnace for the night and leave it with a certainty that there will be a live fire remaining in the morning; but this difiiculty can be overcome if a, ton of anthracite is laid in with the Winter's supply of soft coal, and the anthracite used for banking up the fire over-night. A ton of anthracite used only for this purpose should The following is an abstract of a lecture delivered be fore the New York Electrical Society by R. T. Lozier: Nowadays the new shops that are driven entirely by belt transmission are in the minority, and generally operate under conditions of such peculiar nature as to make the belt and shaft system particularly desirable. In fact, this subject has been threshed out to such an extent that we all now recognize the superiority of electric transmission over the entire belt and shafting system. If we turn to Professor Benjamin's exhaustive paper on losses in machine shops, read before the American Society of Mechanical Engineers in December, 1896, we will find that by a series of very thorough tests he determines the losses attributable to the number of pulleys and...
