If you are thinking about setting up your first woodworking shop, or expanding your existing one, this book will show you how to save both time and money selecting quality equipment. Written by Thomas Shaw, a master woodworker for over 50 years, it will guide you through the most common brands of popular power tools, both stationary and portable. It answers important questions such as where to start, what you really need to buy, what to buy first, and why, and where to get the best prices on everything you buy. It gives you the pros and cons of stationary power tools such as table saws, radial arm saws, planers, jointers, band saws, drill presses, sanders, lathes, and bench grinders. It covers portable power tools such as hand drills, sanders, jig saws, circular saws, multi function tools, routers, and reciprocating saws, other tools such as scroll saws, combination sanders, and spindle sanders.and pneumatic tools such as brad nailers, and framing nailers.

These three volumes entitled Advances in Hypersonics contain the Proceedings of the Second and Third Joint US/Europe Short Course in Hypersonics which took place in Colorado Springs and Aachen. The Second Course was organized at the US Air Force Academy, USA in January 1989 and the Third Course at Aachen, Germany in October 1990. The main idea of these Courses was to present to chemists, com- puter scientists, engineers, experimentalists, mathematicians, and physicists state of the art lectures in scientific and technical dis- ciplines including mathematical modeling, computational methods, and experimental measurements necessary to define the aerothermo- dynamic environments for space vehicles such as the US Orbiter or the European Hermes flying at hypersonic speeds. The subjects can be grouped into the following areas: Phys- ical environments, configuration requirements, propulsion systems (including airbreathing systems), experimental methods for external and internal flow, theoretical and numerical methods. Since hyper- sonic flight requires highly integrated systems, the Short Courses not only aimed to give in-depth analysis of hypersonic research and technology but also tried to broaden the view of attendees to give them the ability to understand the complex problem of hypersonic flight. Most of the participants in the Short Courses prepared a docu- ment based on their presentation for reproduction in the three vol- umes. Some authors spent considerable time and energy going well beyond their oral presentation to provide a quality assessment of the state of the art in their area of expertise as of 1989 and 1991.
Environmental economics has traditionally been conducted in a closed economy mode. Most textbooks on the subject still reflect this restriction; international aspects of environmental problems are often not covered at all or dealt with as an afterthought. In a world in which many environmental pollutants spill over national borders, and national economies have become increasingly integrated, this state of affairs is clearly unsatisfactory: rational environmental policies undertaken in a globalizing world need to take the international economic and environmental relationships into consideration. This perception has given rise to much literature employing an open economy approach to analysing environmental problems and policies. After a decade of intensive research, the time has come to take stock of the state-of-the-art knowledge. It is the objective of this volume to provide a review which will be of interest to scholars and graduate students of economics and political science who wish to familiarize themselves with the main issues and actors in the field of international environmental economics. This collection of non-technical, issue-oriented, and comprehensive surveys is written by leading specialists in international and environmental economics.
