  1. I really don’t have much to say other than thank you. I’m just starting out with my education as a CAD mechanical draftsman, after years of working as a railcar mechanic. So the math might be a little beyond me at the moment, I still find it very interesting. As a pencil drafter in the field, I’ve found that the better you understand what is involved with a device/system the better your design. As to the diagrams being like a steam Loco’s drive rods, I haven’t had the pleasure of working on them, but what it does reminds me of are the big Worthington, two stage air compressors, circa 1920, that we maintained at my last job. They may have been old but they were all but indestructible. I’ve seen them survive failures that would have reduced newer compressors to nothing more than scrap-metal. Now I’ve been following all your articles for the Mechanics Corner from the start, after reading your introduction, I went out and got a copy of “Theory of Machines and Mechanisms” book, for example. So, while I might not have anything to add to discussion, please keep up the good work!
