Electrical Things Boys Like to Makeby Sherman R. Cook
Synopses & Reviews
From fifty years ago comes this nifty manual showing boys (apparently enrolled in a shop class) how to build a variety of electrical projects from a door-bell and night light to a corn popper, crystal set, and toy motors.
You get thirty three projects up front illustrated with detailed drawings and interesting photographs. The last third of the book teaches basic construction techniques such as coil winding, soldering, building a punching jig and the general use of hand tools, and lots more.
Build yourself a crystal set or a one of three motors, or better yet, help your kids or grandkids to build an interesting project and stimulate their interest in technology. (And as technologically ignorant as this society seems to be getting, that oughta give him a big head start over other kids in his class!)
