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.

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.

I wondered where the great Audel brand had gone until I saw this book, probably one of the most known books of all the old Audel's I have in my collector's library. Anyone who does anything with his hands, whether at home in the garage or on the shop floor should buy this book.

The first technical book I ever owned Nov. 11 2006
By Valerie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book new about thirty years ago. It was $11 then, if I remember right. I ordered it from a catalog; amazon.com and home computers didn't exist. So the edition I am writing about is the one thirty years ago.

This book contains all the hints and kinks and even secrets about setting up machinery that you would normally have to learn by working with someone experienced who knows what he is doing.

The book touches on just about everything. The rigging section tells about how to take care of rope, how to tie knots, how to estimate the weight of something by lifting it with a pinch bar. There is a blacksmith section showing the tools used and some basic forging techniques.

There is a lot of discussion of power transmission, such as flat belts, V belts, shafts, bearings, couplings and such. It shows how to align an electic motor so that the pulleys on the motor and the machine will be in line with each other.

This is not a project book. It doesn't have plans on how to build something. But if you have a machine like a hammer mill, a lathe, an air compressor, a blower, a furnace, or whatever, big and mean, this book shows how to put a sling on it, lift it with a crane, move it, build a floor to put in on, put it where you want it, line it with other machines, put a motor on it, line up the pulleys to power it up, bolt it down, lubricate it, and even a little about how to build a roof over it.

You will have to have a big pocket to put this book in.

Must have for someone learning the trade. Sept. 2 2013
By Sean R. Plantz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been a industrial mechanic for over 8 years, and one thing you learn, is no matter how much you know, you don't know anything in the grand scheme of things. Learning that is the single most important thing you can do, as being over confident in your abilities, and being a "know it all" will bite you eventually. Saying that, this book helps you fill in those gaps, makes you a better mechanic, and gives you TONS of information in a well written package. If you are just getting into the trade, or a 20 year vet, this book will have something for you. Some of the guys I work with have older revisions of this book, use it all the time, and have over 30 years in the company, it really is that useful.

So to summarize, never believe you have nothing else to learn, and pick up this book to round out your resources. You wont regret it.
