Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A former engineer stated that the author's first edition contained more alignment information than the sum total of all other works in the Library of Congress. This second edition is the result of over 38 years of hard work and many thousands of hours of writing, testing, retesting, and testing again the alignment related formulas the author has developed on his own. It will make users work much easier and will assist them in making many dollars. It is sure to be valuable to novices and professionals alike!
  • Written by a mechanic for mechanics in a mechanic's language.

  • Provides loads of information, common sense tips, and methods and formulas that have been around for decades.

  • Offers the "how-to's"; along with the drawings, the formulas, and mathematical examples that address the "who", "what", "when", "where", "why", and "how" in several dozen realistic incidents involving alignment work.

  • Features valuable hints, practical tips, comments, and cautionary notes throughout to drive home each point.

  • Covers at least 99% of the field alignment problems encountered by most mechanics.

Book News Annotation:

After 38 hard years of testing, writing and testing again, Harlon's second edition maintains its identity as a guide written for mechanics by a mechanic, an asset indeed when the going gets complicated. Designed for novices and professionals to use on the job, this book covers virtually every situation mechanics encounter in alignment and includes Harlon's own formulas. Among many other topics, Harlon addresses tools, the question of horizontal v. vertical, rules, what to do first, runout checks, sequential torquing of the pump core to volute, monitoring via mag-based indicators, indexing a milling machine head, field coils and armature alignment, rim and face alignment, couplings, the wagon wheel theory and methods, long spools, rare motor breeds and a number of personal observations on life, and life as a mechanic. Along with being the prime resource, this makes for some fine reading in the few moments a mechanics gets away from the job. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
