Author

By Rudy Kouhoupt

Description

Rudy's Model Steam Tractor will reprint, for what we believe to be the first time, Rudy's Case-style traction engine project that was originally published in Popular Mechanics magazine. The drawings in this book were hand drawn by Rudy himself, and have been only gently enhanced using a modern CAD program, allowing them to retain their original craftsman's touch.

I am ever told that I can have only one machine tool, it will be an engine lathe." -- Randolph Bulgin
