London George Newnes 1943 First Edition Hard Cover Good Poor

"(D)esigned to be of direct assistance to the aircraft fitter who is concerned with the fitting and assembly of the components which form the completed aircraft. In order that the aircraft fitter may have a proper appreciation of the importance of his particular work, (the author) has taken special care to explain the function of various aircraft components. Precise details are then given regarding the use of special tools and instruments, including micrometers, the adjustable level, the Abney level and the aircraft-rigging board. The fitting of various types of hydraulic equipment, including the Exactor hydraulic remote control, receive special attention. Workshop processes which are of special importance to the aircraft fitter, i.e., the heat treatment of steel and duralumin and the riveting of aluminium and aluminium alloys are covered in considerable detail. Several valuable tables containing just those data likely to be required for quick reference by the aircraft fitter, and also a glossary of terms, form useful appendices to the book." Slight browning on free endpapers, slight bump at corners, tiny dent on fore-edge of rear board, light fading to spine color and at bottom edge of front board. Dust jacket has light general browning - heavier on spine, large piece missing fron bottom of front panel, several small chips, edge wrinkling and edge tears (archivally taped) - mainly at top of rear panel. Now protected in a mylar sleeve.
