Excerpt from Introduction pp. 3 & 4
   There are many handy devices not made in any factory and not sold in any store that every intelligent man can make himself which save money and labor and time. Inventive men are constantly contriving simple but valuable things to meet the needs of their own practical experience. We are all the time hunting after and gathering these ideas. Now we are putting a lot of the best ones into this book. We are trying by words and pictures to explain clearly just how to make each device. Everything described is tried and practical. Some are old many are new all are good for the purpose intended. They represent the practical successful experience of farmers and other wide-awake workers all over the United States.
   This book is broader than its title. The overflow of good measure includes a valuable chapter on the steel square and its uses. Nowhere else has this subject been handled in a way so easily understood with confusing mathematics cut out. We especially commend this chapter to our readers. We also present some good house and barn plans that will be appreciated by those who contemplate building.

"Well worth the money. The chapter on the square is great. Lots of useful ideas. Maybe one of the best things about it is it opens your eyes to using things around the place in other handy ways. Highly recommend it. "
