2018 Reprint of 1961 Second Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition. Not reproduced with Optical Recognition software. As The New York Times wrote after his death, Henry B. Fried was "widely acknowledged as the dean of American watchmakers." In the revised, 1961 edition of his classic book The Watch Repairer's Manual, reprinted here, Fried addresses topics important to contemporary watch repairers, such as self-winding watches, waterproofing, calendar watches, alarm wristwatches, and chronographs. The Watch Repairer's Manual also includes a fine visual dictionary of exploded views in isometric, which are very helpful for ordering watch parts. One of the few modern books available on the techniques of watch repair and certainly the most esteemed, The Watch Repairer's Manual is outstanding for its sequence of presentation and its many useful illustrations, including enlarged details of alarm and self-winding watches. The consummate craftsman and master of details, Fried himself created the illustrations. From teaching others, Fried has learned that if you have a good understanding of how and why the mechanisms work, you will become better at fixing any problems you face-often without needing to consult a book. The Watch Repairer's Manual provides: - Helpful background material, such as full descriptions of the main divisions of the modern watch mechanisms, including the purpose and function of each unit. - Complete directions for cleaning and overhauling a watch movement for casing. - A section devoted to general repairs and troubleshooting. For anyone interested in watch repair, this volume will serve as a working manual, a reference manual, and even a course of study. Assuming little previous knowledge on the part of the reader, Fried provides complete and clear detail on each operation. The Watch Repairer's Manual should be of great value to the student, hobbyist, watch collector, and instrument maker. Henry B. Fried wrote and illustrated 14 books, many pamphlets, and hundreds of articles on horology, the science of timepieces. The first American to receive the Silver Medal of the British Horological Institute, he served as president of the New York City Horological Society and the New York State Watchmakers Association and vice president of the old Horological Institute of America. He taught and lectured on horology and served as an industry consultant. He also was a consultant for the Random House Dictionary and the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

Composite Fabrication Handbook #3 continues this practical, hands-on series on composites with helpful how-to projects that cover a variety of topics geared toward assisting home-builders in completing their composite projects. Handbook #3 starts off where Handbook #2 ended, expanding on mold-making techniques including special methods for creating molds and composite copies of existing parts, fabricating molds from clay models, and making advanced mold systems using computer modeling software. Several alternative methods of fabricating one-off parts are presented in this book, including molding over frameworks and human forms, as well as using stock composites to build simple structures. Hands-on projects include an automotive body panel, (formed by using an existing panel to make the mold), a camper shell, and a hollow-body guitar. Composite repairs are also covered in this book, along with a primer on computer-aided analysis of composites structures and an inside look at how professional fabricators build high tech composite parts for aerospace, racing and the sports industries. Composite Materials handbook #3 demonstrates advanced mold making techniques, including the use of routers and CNC machines in the making of molds. The use of silicone-compression molds, to form complex shapes, is also included. This is the book for anyone who’s ready to advance beyond the methods and projects presented in Handbooks #1 and #2. Like those two books, this one documents a variety of projects that can be duplicated in your shop or garage. Take your composite fabrication skills to the next level with Composite Materials Handbook #3.

Induction Coil-Builder Training Manual: "Inductors"

The Induction coil-builder training manual is the first book written to help train people to build inductors. Induction coil-builders have making and rebuilding inductors for over 50 years. The skills required to build an inductor are normally learned on the job and taught by an experienced coil-builder. The skills used to build or repair an inductor will be in-demand for many years to come because induction heat-treating is currently the best way to heat-treat metal parts for industries that require durable products. The writing of this book will provide you with an understanding of the skills that are required for anyone who wants to become a coil-builder. The starting point begins with you having the knowledge of what skills you will need and then learning how to use those skills professionally. I have been building and rebuilding inductors for over 30 years and decided to write this training manual to help people become better at building inductors. I have enjoyed building inductors so much that I wanted to share this information with people who work in the Induction heat-treating field or people who are considering it.
