If you are a novice or serious student of Machins, you have to purchase The Complete Deegam Machin Handbook - it is as simple as that (of course, you should be buying all books devoted to Machins)!


Deegam Handbook The book is available directly from Deegam Publications.


I have no financial interest in this book. Just like you, I had to order my own copy.  I have had prompt and excellent service with all transactions.


The author, D.G.A. Myall, has defined a numbering system ("Deegam") that is so effective that no re-numbering will ever be needed, no matter how many new Machins appear. The handbook discusses and lists everything and is profusely illustrated, including pictures of all phosphor types and complete booklets.

I say again ... buy this publication! The listings found on these web pages are no where near complete - for completeness, I refer you to the above "book".
