It says this several times not like the view inside of the book that I saw. I would not purchase this book. It is a waste of money!!!! Maybe the original book with the diagrams but not this (text only) version.

Handy Farm Devices is a really great book if you'd like to read about early 20th century practical living. There's no fluff here; just practical tips for simple living, and lots of good ideas for fixing/making things around the house. In this little gem you'll learn how to make your own tools for your workshop, how to build things for around the house, for the barns, and for your livestock, in addition to other devices for your garden and orchard, including a section that discusses fence-making and gate-making. Several pages are devoted to building a farmhouse (including the floor plan for my wife's "dream house"), barns, and other outbuildings.

This reprint book has MANY titles so lookout for the author's name. Then avoid. Nothing to see here. It's a "collection" of "ideas" from other sources. Kinda like "1001 ways to do XYZ" or "50 neat tricks you never knew about" kinda stuff. Read the preface, it says as much. I'll trade this at the local book store if they'll take it. While it sounds good the author clearly never used any of these. I'd recommend finding a scanned copy online that's in the public domain before you buy.

My interest in this book comes from a growing concern about Peak Oil. When energy is no longer cheap or plentiful, how will we adapt? One way to approach this question is to look ahead and see how technologies such as solar and wind energy can help. Turns out, however, that the feasibility of these technologies is also dependent to a large degree upon plentiful, cheap oil. So, in addition to looking ahead, it's probably a good idea to look to the past. How did people of a few generations back manage such simple tasks as refrigeration (for example), without relying upon constant availability of electricity and fossil fuel?

This book is a good resource for those who want to investigate this question. It offers many examples of very practical implements, most of which can be built with simple tools, some basic skills, and hard work. "Hard work" may be the most operant item in that list, and throughout the book are sprinkled brief aphorisms encouraging one to embrace the work ethic: "the manly part is to do with might and main what you can (Emerson)"; "keep your shop and your shop will keep you"; "Taste the joy that springs from labor (Longfellow)".

Good illustrations; spare, to-the-point writing st

This paper copy lacks virtually all of the illustrations. Text alone is insufficient for a book like this. There are free electronic copies available online that include the illustrations. Get one of them and forget this one.

So many devices, and mostly enough info to duplicate them. It gave me lots of ideas to build what I need even if I don't do it exactly like the book suggests.Very inspirational. YOU can do it too!

not sure which version the other reviews are talking about—this is a fine, cheap reproduction of the book complete with all the illustrations. Sure, it’s of dubious DIY value, but it entertains my kindergartener.

Handy little book. I love using bits and pieces to make things instead of buying new all the time. I like being able to put things together and enjoy the process of it. Tried and true designs that work for a reason. They might not be as fast or pretty as new products, but they get the job done. Well written with good directions, although some places do rely on a certain set of skills/knowledge already being known.

This printed edition mentions illustrations to refer to build many of these items. The original author must have felt this was necessary when this book was first printed years ago. This reprint has none making too many of these device impractical to build.
the same reprinted text under a new title. I bought this Homemade Contrivances, and old time farm and garden devices together as was recommended by amazon. They are all the same book. Nothing more than a poorly illustrated overview with little to no detail at all.
