Cornell have been scanning a lot of old books. I came across these whilst searching about:

Betts, Harold Scofield Timber, its strength, seasoning, and grading, 1st ed. (1919) 7 matches in 7 of 262 pages

This book is quite something - lot of useful information in it - all about making kilns, drying, internal moisture........ 262 pages to wade through though!!!!!


Hansen, Howard James Timber engineers' handbook. (1948) 1 match in 1 of 894 pages

Garratt, George Alfred The mechanical properties of wood, including a discussion of the factors affecting the mechanical properties, working stresses for structural timber, and methods of timber testing (1931) 2 matches in 2 of 290 pages

Cool. 8) I see the old whip, cane and umbrella manufacturers were really knocking back the Turkish boxwood. I've often wondered if they did... :D

I'm not sure the links I've posted are quite right. If you search for the book by author, you can see the entire book page by page, not just the figures.

Adam,

S'okay, I was just pulling your leg. :wink: You can go to the contents or index link, see what page you want to look at and stick it in the box at the top. Nice simple way of doing it in fact, I wish others used the same system.

Cheers, Alf
