Audel books have been around forever, but I could never find a revision, at least not of this really well-known book for my toolbox. I had an old copy, but it was really out of date. I'm recommending this new one to all the other guys in the shop!

Audel's mechanical trades pocket guide Aug. 10 2007
By Michael Ingenito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If your in the mechanical trades this book has an exceptional wealth of information.information has helped me accomplish tasks in supprising accuracy & time.Nothing can cover an entire subject, yet there is enough information and explainations to get one out of a stickey situation.
shop and maintenance reference Dec 8 2010
By John Manzo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I manage a crew of maintenance techs. who do not have a high level of mechanical experience. I have provide each man with his own guide. I have made it manditory reading as part of my "continuous improvement program" because of the practical and accurate mechanical information that it contains.
I would prefer to see a larger sized book with larger print, but this is fine if you have sharp young eyes.
