The Boy Mechanic Best projects from the classic Series Dover publications http://store.doverpublications.com/ ISBN#0-486-45227-1 copyright©2006 What can I say about the one thing most of us more experienced,shop rats(older) have in common in the US is the Popular Mechanics magazines from the forties and fifties with all those amazing projects that filled the pages. Over 100 projects that could be built with common tools and supplies. There is a IC engine, Steam engine/boiler, and shop tips. Boats,scooters,birdhouses,workbenches,toys, model trains, planes,kites and so much more. If used only as a trip down those summer day memories trying to build the wooden gas powered racer with the old gas engine the crazy guy on the corner gave you. (what is scary I have become the crazy guy on the corner) or building some of the fun things with the kids or gran kiddies.
