The most comprehensive manual of its kind in my opinion. I am a veteran pipe fitter of 20 years. Just like master card, "don't leave for work with out it!"
This book was to replace my old book that had been borowed and not returned. This book is a "must have" for anyone actively involved in the pipelining industry. While some of the homemade fittings cannot be used in code piping it can and has solved many problems during my 30+years of cross-country pipline cnstruction.
In my opinion, you should buy this book, combined with Frankland's other book the "Pipe Trades Pocket Manual", and IPT's "Pipe Trades Handbook". With the three of these books, you should be able to handle about 95% of problems you will encounter in the field. If you want to learn how to make templates for pipe, I would suggest you buy Frankland's Book, "Pipe Template Layout" along with Rick Eisenbarth's book, "The Ultimate Template and Layout Pattern Book for Pipefitters and Welders".Back to this book. The information is presented very clearly. It also provides valuable tricks of the trade that will save you time and money.
A great reference for the Have looked at others and find this to be the best of the bunch.tradesman. Got my first one forty some odd years ago as an apprentice. Finally wore it out and had to replace it. Pleased to see it still in print. Have looked at others, but think this one is the best.
I worked in the metal fabrication industry for many years as a Welder/Fitter (sorry I was always a welder first). This book saves a lot of time in the layout process. Through it one can learn trigonometric functions to solve layout problems. Armed with a blueprint the handbook and a calculator your can master just about any project (specially when they hand you a rough sketch). Useful for all metal fabrications not just pipefitting!The Pipe Fitter's and Pipe Welder's Handbook, Revised Edition
I've been in the business as a steamfitter for 20 years and this book is the number 1 reference book used industry wide today. Includes your basics and a lot of rarely (but sometimes) used layouts and design.
on page 168 in estimating the weight of steel pipe the multiplier should be .2225 instead of .2199. I use this book quite often in the trade and recomend it to many of the people entering the workforce
If you are a professional pipe fitter or plumber, home owner or handy person you must get this book. It saves the time you would take figuring out angles, pipe length, tank capacities, fittings and pretty much all the time consuming math associated with plumbing. this book helps me at work as well at home. I strongly recommend investing in this book!!
