Well-known collector and author Bruce Cynar has produce a wonderful treatise about one of the most important steam appliances of all, the Steam Gauge. I just received my copy and I had to stop everything else that I was doing and dive right into this book. You would be amazed at how many different designs there are and how many people developed various devices to measure steam pressure. How else could early boiler operators know exactly what they were dealing with, and how to operate their equipment safely? The steam gauge became one of the most important of all items of the industrial revolution as, by indicating the pressure of steam in various devices and applications, it paved the way for safe and efficient operation of all machines and appliances that produce and utilize steam.

The price of this 200 page spiral bound book is $45.00 and includes postage. Order your copy directly from the author: R. Bruce Cynar
