Excerpt from Steam and Hot Water Fitters Text Book Prepared for the Steam and Hot Water Heating Course at the New York Trade School, With Supplementary Chapters on House Heating, Specifications and Surface EstimatingEarly in the summer of 1894 I was invited by the Advis ory Committee of the New York Trade School in the Steam and Hot Water Fitting Department to deliver two lectures a week to the class, for twelve weeks of the course, and also to give such aid and advice as might assist in suc cessfully inaugurating the work Having decided to un dertake the work, I discovered that no text book had ever been prepared, and that the course therefore would have to be created It was with a view to meeting this de ficiency that the lectures were prepared, which after de livery were published in The Metal Worker And now appear herewith in book form It is believed that these lectures will be particularly appreciated by those who wish to master the principles of steam and hot water heating The definitions in the beginning deal with the appliances, and little by little the scholar is led on until at the close he is told how to figure surfaces and lay out plans and install heating apparatus, with all necessary piping In a word, the whole subject of steam and hot water heating is cov ered in a simple way And it is believed the lectures in the form of a text book will prove of value to all who wish to acquire information in this department While primarily addressed to young students, the text book will be found of great advantage to those in other lines of trade who wish to take up steam and hot water heating.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works....
