      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

      Very often you will find USED copies of older versions for small money (I got mine for $15.00 well used.)  Having an old copy is sometimes VERY valuable since old stuff sometimes gets "updated" by someone who knows only about more modern techniques (like calculators with a square root function.)

      Just checked eBay and there are a lot of copies, even on CD, for under $20.00.

        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:

        I came across this tonight: A solar powered steam pump is being developed to pump water.

        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...
