Look what I just found! It’s still a useful reference for working on older equipment. This is the 1963 edition which was several years old when I had the class. Textbooks stayed in print much longer back then. Now the textbook publishers are constantly renumbering pages and adding pictures just to put out a new edition every year or two in a greedy attempt to circumvent the used book market.
...reading the "Electrical Measurements" index had me remembering some of the my practicals in training school - calculating & making shunts for ammeters & series resistors for voltmeters. (nowadays I cannot even recall the FSD - "full scale deflection" of a "standard" meter...probably 1mA or less)
Then the "Power Supplies" index had me recalling 80's...5Y3's & 6X4's etc rectifying tubes, winding centre-tapped transformers with valve heater-filament windings, etc, etc.
My old man had tech books piled high from Oz, the US & UK on almost everything valve/vacuum tube & electronics in general...I still have hundreds of tubes & even an old valve-tester from him that I really should pass on to someone who can use them!
Perhaps some old radio ham might read this & recall my old man yarning to others around the globe back in the days of yore - call sign VK5MU.
