Are there any books available on the mechanics of shutters?
I am looking for books on the mechanics of shutters, any type will do but in particular leaf, bearing, roller blind or pneumatic shutters. It would be fun to find some old non-functioning ones to tinker with and even try to repair or build one! I'd like to have some better idea of how they work before I end up with a spring or shutter leaf lodged in my face. :o
- It also just occurred to me that if anyone knows of relevant patents that would be extremely helpful as well!
