"Machinery", which I guess was a magazine, was published by The Industrial Press, New York; it was subtitled "The Open Window to the Machinery Industry".
The 1924 edition of Machinery's Handbook has 1592 pages. The copyright has expired.

Note regarding punctuation: There were a few places where there were commas or periods inside quotes, in the archaic and brain-dead style that we were all taught. I changed them. This is the 90's, and we're talking about a problem in translation -- read George Steiner if you want to grok that.
Another note, about symbols and characters sets. The original text used the word degree spelled out in nearly all of this section, but I have changed it to the degree symbol () and if you see something else, you probably need to tweak your browser. And there's a name, properly BaumÈ, or Baume if the accent on the last letter goes awry -- which appears to be more of a problem than getting the degree mark to come out right. Should I take off the accent? I'll think about it.
