Format: Paperback
I'm a shop foreman and I need to know A to Z about everything mechanical and how to fix it. This is the only book I could ever find with millwrights information in it and blacksmithing, but all I had was my dog-eared, ancient copy. Until now. Finally a new edition and none of the good material has been disturbed. This a must-have for every shop-every shop foreman.

Format: Hardcover
This book is equivalent in quality to the Machinery's Handbook. The detail and focus is on the mechanical trades without getting into the engineering mathematics. This book is an excellent supplement to the Machinery's Handbook. Inside the book, you will find comprehensive information ranging from fasteners, torque, cable, rope, pumps, hydraulics, drives, and construction basics and foundation. This book suits all trades people whether they are just new to the trade or experienced journeymen.
