The Boy Mechanic

The Boy Mechanic

If there was ever a perfect example of American mechanical ingenuity, it’s the Device That Frightens Flies At Screen Door. A spring, a curtain rod, a length of scalloped, 8-oz. cotton duck, and a cord combine to form an inconspicuous little device that flaps when the screen door opens, keeping flies from swarming the kitchen. Simple, inexpensive, yet brilliant — these are the qualities that make each of the over 200 vintage projects in The Boy Mechanic so enjoyable to read, let alone create. Culled from a half-century of Popular Mechanics issues (make that the first half of last century), The Boy Mechanic represents an age when imagination could conquer far more than the checkbook — when solving a problem was more satisfying than paying to have it go away. We can all learn something from The Boy Mechanic, even if it’s nothing more than how to construct A Simple Device for Suspending Parcels from Overhead Hooks. —Benjamin Chertoff

Fundamentals of Paper Model Design

Fundamentals of Paper Model Design

This is a free e-book about how to design paper models (card models). It is based mainly on the freely available open source program Blender 3D and an illustration program of your choice but it teaches a lot of the most important fundamentals of 3D paper model design that have the tendency to give a wee bit of trouble to new designers. It is 227 pages long and has hundreds of full color illustrations to help you understand the concepts of the e-book better.
