Isn't it incredible? It was edited by the people from the magazine "American Machinist". If you are not familiar with that magazine I encourage you to look into it. I stumble across it at the same time I found this. You as an antique tool guy will love this:
This is in a pdf of an archived bound copy American Machinist. I am including a link to the book. You may have to fiddle with the settings but it can be downloaded as a pdf file.
Happy perusing!

“A man is only a boy plus experience. Attract a boy’s interest to the history and romance of the manufacture of metals and mechanical processes and he will find no spare time for dance halls and picture shows.” M.W. Torbet, Lieutanant, U.S. Coast Guard. July, 1916

Lt. Torbet was Correct!! Years ago wife went with me to friends house, this guy and I collect militaria, were looking at some of his stuff and wife said, " well, this takes up a lot of my time", friend replyed," well what would you rather me do?, collect old military stuff or bar hop and chase women?". Same goes for the love of metal working.
