“With the mechanization of farms, it is becoming essential for a greater percentage of farm workers to have some knowledge of mechanics, particularly whilst deliveries of new machines are uncertain and spare parts and full repair facilities restricted.
This book is, therefore, designed to give a general working guide to the care and maintenance and general operation of most common types of machine found on the modern farm.  No attempt has been made to go into the particular adjustments or repairs of specialized machinery such as binders, combines, threshing machines, etc., although internal combustion engines are dealt with exhaustively.  The principles contained in many of the chapters on workshop practice will enable an intelligent mechanic to keep most equipment running in times of emergency and to overcome many of the everyday problems met on the farm”
