I have seen it recommended so many times by so many of you here I have already decided to get one, at least in English at first and later in Spanish. $100 US is a lot of money here but from what all of you say it is well worth the investment. Having both copies would certainly make my job easier. I will check out the link you offered and also see what Amazon has, as the book stores here don't really carry books like that in stock. I'm going to Laredo in a couple of weeks so I might be able to order it and pick it up there.

Machinery's Handbook is available from Industrial Press and I think it is also available in Spanish. As the others have suggested this is a must have reference book for any engineer or machinist. I also strongly suggest that you get one in both English and Spanish. They are about $ 100.00

They have another website at:
That's probably a better avenue for contacting them...
The received a grant and have set up production in Ethiopia.
I notice that they say have decided to use 'modern synthetic materials' ( i.e., plastics) in order to reduce 'entrance condensation', which normally reduced the efficiency of a steam engine. I'm pointing that out since there could be some criticism of the use of plastics.
One possibility of this is that the condensed steam that comes from this device could be much more free of microbes, etc. Concentrated UV light could sterilize contaminated water quite quickly.
That's a huge bonus....
Now if we could find some kind of easily built cell to absorb things like arsenic, if arsenic is carried along in the steam... whoo-ee!
(I got that idea from reading something at the ERE home page at Standford U this weekend. They are working on a new type of device to do something they are calling 'electrohydrogenation'. see:

The machine is quite simple, and the target price for this is in the $250-$3000 range.
Look under the Technical header for the How It Works heading, and check out the video on that page:
The pump is designed to work on boreholes 2" in diameter, and up to about 15 meters/ 50' deep...
