Hello, I am Nobuo Kameyama, one of the Japanese freelance translators specializing in Mechanics / Mech Engineering, and it is for the first time that I post a message on one of the ProZ's communities.

I happened to know a reference book; "Mechanisms & Mechanical Devices Sourcebook" by Neil Sclater and Nicholas P. Chironis (Mcgraw-Hill). Do anyone have the book and if you have one, do you think the book is a good buy?

Thanks in advance.

Well... A highly specialised request. Sorry, I can't help you deciding whether the cited textbook is a good buy. But THE ONLY sourcebook on mechanisms is a 1000+ page encyclopedia by prof. S.N. Kozhevnikov: "Elements of Mechanisms" Decidedly worth recommending for anyone interested in mechanisms, even if available (original) in old bookstores only.

Greetings

Kozhevnikov-san, Gracias! Mar 13, 2007

Kozhevnikov-san (dear kozhevnikov), thank you for your comment.

> THE ONLY sourcebook on mechanisms is a 1000+ page
> encyclopedia by prof. S.N. Kozhevnikov: "Elements of
> Mechanisms"

My mind flashed back to the first time I had scanned "Elements of Mechanisms" through at Kinokuniya, one of the leading Japanese chain bookstores in Shijuku, Tokyo many years ago, although I did not buy "Elements of Mechanisms" but I bought "Electronic Principle" by Malvino (Mcgraw-Hill) instead because I started to work for one of the leading electronic components manufacturers in Japan at that time, however, I only read one tenth of the book

I also bought "Economics" by Paul A. Samuelson (Mcgraw-Hill) but again I only read one twentieth of the book......;)

Now another 1000+ page encyclopedia... Well, I will probably buy "Elements of Mechanisms" if I could read through the ONLY 500 page book.
