Genre: Technology & Engineering

Excerpt from Radford's Cyclopedia of Construction, Vol. 2 of 12: Carpentry, Building and Architecture The keynote of the Cyclopedia is found in the emphasis constantly laid on the practical as distinguished from the theoretical form Of treatment, in its total avoidance of the complicated formulas of higher mathematics, and in its redue tion of all technical subjects to terms of the simplest and clearest English. Throughout the pages devoted to Steel Construction, for example, the mathematics of the subject have been eliminated to such an extent that the reader will not find a single instance where even a square root sign has been used. In addition to the larger problems of engineering and building construction, one entire volume, as well as many chapters scattered through the work, is devoted to those smaller constructions that are of special interest to the teacher or student of manual training or the home shop worker of a mechanical turn of mind. Inasmuch as a wider knowledge and a, more intelligent grasp of the fundamental principles of construction and design will tend to greater efficiency on the part of working men, and to greater economy in production, the purpose of the cyclopedia or construction is one which will appeal strongly, not only to the men themselves, but also to the architectural and engineering fraternity as a whole. The authors of the various sections are all men of wide experience whose recognized standing is a guarantee of reliability and practical thoroughness.

A construction contract is an agreement between parties to pay a cer' tain compensation for certain valuable posses sions or services, and may be for labor, material, money, or any valuable consideration. It may be in writing or simply a verbal understanding; but so long as it is an arrangement between the parties interested, and is understood by both or all of them to be such, it is a contract, and they are both or all equally bound by it.

Excerpt from Radford's Cyclopedia of Construction: Carpentry, Building and Architecture A knowledge of mechanical drafting is indis pensable to the engineer, the architect, the contractor, the inventor, the carpenter, the machinist, and, in short, to everyone whose work lies along these or similar lines. Mechanical drafting, as the name implies, is done chie y by the use of instruments. Free hand drawing, however, is frequently used in connection with mechanical, especially in pre liminary sketching and in ornamental work.
