Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First comprehensive revision since 1972 of this unique and well-known book, the only one to combine millwrights and mechanical trades maintenance and troubleshooting content in one book. Revised to cover improvements and new equipment now being used on industry shop floors, while still covering old equipment (often more than thirty years old) for which very little maintenance and repair literature is available. Features extensive updates to the text and illustrationsIncludes additional chapters on predictive and preventive maintenance to correspond with the needs of millwrights’ and mechanics’ duties that are expected in today’s workplace. Contains an electrical chapter with troubleshooting guides for electric motors. An essential companion for any millwright or professional working in manufacturing industries or training for such trades.
