Comrades,

Here we have a fascinating glimpse at an old watchmaking manual...
Sadly, I can't read much -- yet -- but I really enjoy the pictures and diagrams. The book is quite fragile; a good sign it was well-used in its time. Perhaps those of you who speak Russian will have more insight into this book...

Thanks for looking!
Don't you young people know of any, reasonably priced, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software that extracts Russian text from images, so that the gist of the text could be revealed. If it then seemed relevant we can pester the likes of Ocram for a real translation.

:-! There you go! Thanks for the link.

Perhaps not the best way to do a whole translation, but considering that was free software, using images from your camera phone, the results are encouraging. Please let us know how you get on.

As schnurrp said earlier "At your usual pace you will have it translated and posted on your site by the end of the year, mroatman." ;-)
