'PREFACE.

It is not claimed by the author that this little volume covers the whole art and mystery of Machine making, but he nevertheless confidently hopes and believes that apprentices and others, who are seeking reliable information upon this subject, will here find something new and of real and permanent interest. Those persons generally who are interested in Steam-engines and Boilers, will also find various points touched upon, with more or less amplitude, which are of importance to them.

The matter will be found to be purely American, and must therefore possess additional practical value to American niechanics.

New YORK, October 13, 1866.
