Practical Mechanics was a monthly British magazine devoted mostly to home mechanics and technology. It was first published by George Newnes, Ltd., in October 1933, and ran for 352 issues until the magazine's termination in August 1963. Practical Mechanics was edited by Frederick J. Camm until his death in 1959. With an emphasis on things its readers could reasonably construct themselves, the magazine featured numerous articles on how to build things around one's house, such as a sink or bathtub. It also regularly featured more fanciful articles on how to build things with less obvious applications around the home, for example a Geiger counter, or an aeroplane for Ap25 (not including the cost of an engine). The early issues were in black and white. The magazine began printing in color at an unknown date.Making An Electric Washing Machine NEWNES PRACTICAL MECHANICS August, 1953. | \f \ S\-07 75 ...
