Another gem from Hasluck's "Work" series from almost a hundred years ago.

Electricity was a cutting edge technology, but motors and generators (then called dynamos) were expensive. Here are a collection of articles from "Work" magazine of which Hasluck was editor describing how to build your own equipment.

Chapters include: the Siemens dynamo, the Gramme dynamo, the Manchester dynamo, the Simplex dynamo, calculating the size and amount of wire for small dynamos, ailments of small dynamo-electric machines, small electric motors without castings, how to determine the direction of rotation of a motor, how to make a shuttle-armature motor, fifty-watt undertype dynamo, and a four-hundred-and-forty-watt Manchester type dynamo.

Some of the motors and dynamos are small table-top machines which would make great experimental projects. You might be able to scale them up to generate significant power from a water wheel or windmill. Who knows? The 450 watt machine has interesting possibilities.

Lots of illustrations and details. Lots of information that can be adapted. Great lessons to be learned. 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 softcover 160 pages
