Are there good textbooks to learn about mechanisms and machines?

I am not talking about books on Kinematics, Machine Design or books in that vein. I'm talking about books that show many types of mechanisms (fasteners, bearings, brackets, gears, motors, etc) and when they are used, what other parts can they be used with, how they are typically used. A book that focuses less on equations and more on general practice of these parts.


I need something so when I am designing, I can have an all-in-one mechanism handbook where I can look for the type of mechanism I can use for a certain function. I can always search for equations on force, heat, strain and all that on the internet later.
