Good News - Edward Abbey
Added: Sunday, May 16, 2010
SKU: gn/328/000
Good News, Edward Abbey's acclaimed underground classic, the West is wild again. American civilization as the twentieth century knew it has crumbled. In the great Southwest, a new breed or settler, white and Indians together, is creating a new way of life in the wilderness - a pastoral economy - with skills and savvy resurrected from the pre-industrial past. Meanwhile, in a last surviving bastion of urban life, the remnats of the power elite are girding their armed forces to reimpose the old order. This is a land of horses and motorcycles, high-tech weaponry and primitive courage, and the struggle for the American future is mounting in intensity. No quarter is asked or given, and the outcome hangs in perilous balance against a background of magnificent nature and eternal human verities.

Building An Alcohol Producing Still
Added: Sunday, May 16, 2010
SKU: cam/aps/274/707

Oh well, it had to happen and here it is - Vince Gingery tells you in detail how to build a 6 gallon electric still. In America an individual can obtain a permit to distil industrial alcohol , as long as he is a small producer (under 10,000 gallons a year....). In the U-K I don't think you can do the same, so buy the book but if you build the still - beware! 82 page well illustrated, large format paperback. Published by the author.

Autopower - Generator Secrets
Added: Sunday, May 16, 2010
SKU: cam/gs/118/400
Lindsay Publications says - We had this a while ago, when it was called by its original title - Autopower, and it is good. Here you get secrets from the 1930's about taking a generator and converting it into a 110 volt AC alternator that could power a farm or home; the opening chapters give detailed instructions for rewinding a Ford Model A, Model T, and Dodge Type G generators. Later chapters talk about the general principles that can be applied to almost any generator. That's where the real value of this small book lies. It is not applicable to modern alternators. You must start with an old generator and go from there. Obviously, you won't use a Ford Model A or T or even an early Dodge. You'll use what you can find. And generators are still available at scrap yards on old vehicles, even on eBay at reasonable cost. Useful information. 56 page, well illustrated paperback. Lindsay Publications

Dynamo! How to build them
Added: Sunday, May 16, 2010
SKU: cam/d/278/654

This book combines two titles, the first being How to Make a Dynamo by Alfred Crofts, and orginally published in London in 1900. The second is How to Build a Fifty-Light Dynamo by A.E. Watson, published in the U.S.A. in 1895. Crofts’ book is considerably the larger and more detailed, and describes the building of a DC dynamo 16 inches wide, and powering about ten 16 candle-power lamps. Mr. Watson’s book describes building a big machine with a base around 34 inches long and 20 inches wide. The drawings are better than in the first book, but may have been reduced, as you need a magnifying glass to get some measurements. The drawings in Croft’s book are not so clean anyway, and appear to be enlarged, but neither should stop you building the dynamo if you are so minded - and there is also a lot of technical information here. 192 page paperback. 51 drawings.
