This book is perfect in assisting me in my job. I refer to it often. I bought a copy years ago and used it so much it fell apart so this is a replacement book.

HASH(0xa008bdbc) out of 5 stars An estimating book for all industry Oct. 21 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback
I have used this book since 1986. It has been the cornerstone of my pipe estimating. It is easy to use and in most cases you can narrow a seemingly complicated estimating job down to a few tables. I recommend this book to any estimator charged with providing accurate budgets in industrial construction.

The book addresses carbon steel, stainless steel Heavy wall, large O.D. Staging, Insulation, Pipe Hangers and more.

The Author goes into detail in a clear and concise method about how to structure your estimate and provides a sample estimating sheet.

Even though the estimating sheet is about 30 yrs old. I have set one up in excel to match his format and it works beautifully.

A must book for any pipe estimator.

HASH(0xa00911e0) out of 5 stars Estimators Piping Man-hour Manual Oct. 11 2008
By Phillip J. Campbell - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback
This book is still the benchmark manual for accurate man-hour takeoffs in the piping industry and the only improvement will be when it is published in a metric measurement version as well as this Imperial measurement standard. This manual is used in places other than the USA and the rest of the world is Metric.

HASH(0xa0091258) out of 5 stars excellent Aug. 12 2007
By Paul Garnette Continental Pipeline - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback
I have used this book since the first addition and give it out to all new engineers coming into the pipeline industry, when they are envolved in costs for new piping projects.
HASH(0xa00915e8) out of 5 stars Lots of detail March 16 2013
By Ron Mullins - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
I have used earlier versions of this book, enjoyed enough to buy the latest version after loaning the other one to a co-worker. I developed a spreadsheet that includes each step or task from handling to testing. Good information. Will buy again if this one doesn't come home, if I let it out.

HASH(0xa0091618) out of 5 stars Really good reference March 12 2014
By Lector - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a great reference to avoid any guesstimating and to estimate MH's on handling, cutting, beveling, field welding, bolting up accessories. I really recommend this if you are estimating piping work. It is based on steel material so this is not good for iron pipelines.
