From the introduction: “In this reset third edition of ‘The Drawing Office Handbook’ opportunity has been taken to extend its scope considerably. Part I consists once again of a unique collection of abstracts drawn mainly from sources issued by the British Standards Institution, and In Part II, the subjects of Gear Design, Welding, Lubrication, Vibration, and Noise have been added to those singled out for specific treatment, joining completely rewritten sections on Design Formulae, Properties of Materials, Mechanical Power Transmission, and Springs, whilst in Part III a brief reference to Electronics appears for the first time. Part IV is a new feature which lends itself to possible expansion in future editions.”
