Some folks here seem to be pretty skilled at tracking down hard to find papers, so let's give this one a shot:

Nikonov, G. P., and Shavlovskii, S. S. 1961 Gornye Mashiny i Avtomatika, Nauchno-Tekh. Sb, 1 (18), 5.

That's the citation from another journal article. I originally found reference to this paper in the book Waterjetting technology (see reference 2.19). I don't speak Russian, so this one has proved pretty hard to find. I'm not looking for someone to get me a PDF of this (though that would be nice!), just someone to help me identify a library that has the journal this is in so I can get my university library to request a scan via their interlibrary service.

What I have figured out:

The journal seems to be called "Gornye mašiny i avtomatika" or "Горные машины и автоматика" in Cyrillic. This journal seems to be successor to that journal. (I am going to email the people who run the journal now to see if they can help, but my experience suggests that I'll get no reply, that they won't have copies of the older journals, or that they will not be able to provide scans for various reasons.)

I can find what appears to be this journal a few times on WorldCat: 1, 2, 3

All libraries I found above do not seem to have the right volume (volume 1). I suspect this journal would be much easier to find for someone who lives in Russia or speaks Russian. Any directions would be appreciated.

I was able to get a copy of this via interlibrary loan some time ago, after finding much better citations.
