      I opened this book and it opened my eyes. Being a fabricator, of most everything, this is the most cherrished referencing book in my shop. The 1st week it was needed to repair a large snow blower auger with reference to steel types/bending/tempering & welding. Saved over $ 500.00 the first use. Duluth Thanks Again & Again!

        Got this for my mechanical engineer son for Christmas. He said it contained info he had previously spent 20-30 minutes hunting for in ASME text. After he opened it, he was so interested in it, he forgot to look at his other gifts.

          We bought this for our son who is a senior in engineering, who stopped opening any other Christmas gifts to read this manual. He took it back to college with him and showed it to his classmates who are working on the quarter-scale tractor team. All of them were ready to place an order to get their own copy. Great pocket-sized reference!

            I gave this item to my mechanical engineering college student for Christmas. He eagerly paged through it and said he wished I'd given it to him long before this. Had I found it before he went off to college as a freshman in 2010, I certainly would have! He is very happy to pack it in his suitcase for his growing engineering reference shelf in his dorm room.

                I use this book as an engineering reference. It has a lot of information on machining, tooling, and manufacturing as well as a nice section on ergonomic design criteria. Check out the Black Book of Fasteners too. Bought a set of each for the entire engineering and applications department of our company.

                Great gift idea for that manufacturing buddy or heavy industrial service friend of yours!!!

                    The Engineer's Black Book was well received by the "budding" engineer as well as his dad. There may well be fighting over this book so I had better order a second!
