Book was delivered in 3 days in perfect condition. Pages on this edition are easy to read. Had read some reviews that 29th edition is thinner paper with print showing through from the opposite side. Great reference book.

I'm a student in mechanical engineering currently doing an internship in a firm. I was always borrowing my co-workers older edition and figured I might as well get my own for now and later. A wealth of information, well presented and easy to read, the thumb indexing rocks!

La seule chose a dire... quand on regarde le livre, il a le format d'une bible...C'est parce-que s'est une.

Absolument tout ce que vous pouvez imaginer avoir besoin de savoir une jour sur le sujet, ce trouve dans cette bible.

À acheter les yeux fermés.

If you need it, you need it Nov. 23 2008
By Chris Virgin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Any design engineer should have this book. It's got everything from fastener dimensions (if you have to model/draw them in your design) to std. clearance&interference fits to material properties and machining speeds & feeds.

If you're designing, manufacturing, or planning most any products that aren't circuit boards, it's probably a good idea to get a copy of this book.

Couldn't Be Happier! Feb. 14 2010
By E. Hussung - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was recommended for a class I was taking but not required...I'm so glad I got it! It's been more than helpful so far and I don't know what I would do without it. It's full of equations and charts that any mechanical engineer or machinist should never be without.

Engineering Bible! Feb. 15 2010
By Eric Duvall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This handbook is a must for any mechanical engineer. Chock-full of useful(hard to find) data. It has everything from shaft alignment to mechanical/chemical properties of materials to wind-chill calculations. Unlike most engineering references, it's easy to use!

Attn: Engineering Students Sept. 7 2010
By jhaffy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a recent B.S. mechanical engineering graduate and I purchased the 28th Ed. of Machinery's Handbook shortly after starting my first job. I really wish I would have had this book during school. It is an excellent reference for mechanical engineers, machinists, and the like. I am now using it for various mechanical design projects at work. If you know somebody that has a copy, (it's okay if it's an older edition), flip through it and see if it's something you could use. I thought it was basically a condensed version of almost everything useful that I learned in four years of college. Enjoy!

With a bit of practice, it's faster than the internet. Oct. 17 2012
By Euge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When trying to figure out the standard accepted dimensions or clearances or whatever, for doing anything mechanical, this book is probably the way to go. The internet is chock full of forums that clog up the search engines, where tool-bags argue over irrelevant things instead of just stating the information you are looking for. So instead of wasting your time wading through that, just crack open this miniature cinder-block of a tome, and find what you're looking for in there.

Things I would improve:

1. Include more background and textbook type explanations at the start of each section. Trying to figure out the basics from the incredibly detailed tables can sometimes be a pain.

2. Make a digitized version. If I could search through this bad boy by getting access to an online version with the purchase of this book, and simply typing what I need into a search bar, instead of leafing through the 87 page index, I would be a very happy engineer.
