Typefounding, Lettering, & Printing
At present this consists primarily of my project to study "hot metal" type making and letterpress printing (The Circuitous Root Typefoundry and Press).
Telecommunications when it had style.
Landline manual telegraphy and electromechanical teletypewriter service. Practical telegraphy for the home.
Machines which construct geometry. As drawing instruments. As toys. As machine tools. As machines themselves. Links to the same in other Notebooks.
Links and Bibliography. Juneero.
[NOT DONE] The history and philosophy of model engineering. Projects not covered elsewhere.
[NOT DONE] An ongoing miscellany of very short projects in the construction of mechanisms and tools.
Steam Engines (& Related)
[NOT DONE] Historical & technical studies, and model engineering projects, in stationary and marine steam engines. Non-rotative and rotative beam engines,; atmospheric or Newcomen engines; maybe turbines someday. Also, compressed air engines & vacuum engines. For steam locomotives, see Rail.
[NOT ONLINE YET] Electromagnets. [Batteries.] [perhaps a few larger projects,] but do Telegraphy separately, above .
The technical and antiquarian study of time machinery.
Note: For watches as they appeared in jewelers' catalogues, see the Jewelry Notebooks, below.
The craft of jewelry making is the most ancient of the fine technologies.
[NOT DONE] Steam locomotives, of course, but also non-steam conventional rail, cable cars, and rack & funicular rail.
[NOT DONE] Both static and kinetic, in all media.
On Divers Arts
[NOT DONE] Whatever won't fit anywhere else.
