Let's say you are getting ready to figure a 22-1/2-degree offset with a spread between the pipes of 31-3/8" (center to center). Now let's also say your calculator breaks, your phone dies, and you are out in the middle of nowhere. You could layout the offset with a framing square, but you're surrounded by dirt. The guy welding the pipe is standing by the gas powered welder/ generator looking at you with a funny look on his face. Should you throw in the towel? Not so fast! It's already been calculated for you in this book. Go to Pages 5-7 and look at the charts for "Calculations for 22-1/2 degree Offsets". It shows that an offset of 31 inches has an 81" travel between the centers of the fittings. Now find 3/8" Offset... It has a travel of 1". Add 31" and 1" and presto!... your center to center for your elbows... 32"! Now just subtract your weld gaps and your fitting take-outs.Good thing you bought this book.Frankland also covers 20, 22-1/2, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 60, and 70-degree calculations for offsets, mitered pipe turns, arc lengths for cutting custom elbows, Trig, pipe and fitting data, and tons of other useful formulas and tips. I strongly recommend you own a copy.
This pocket manual is a must for all pipe fitters, especially offshore in the Oil & Gs Offshore Industry. This manual has everything from A to Z and you should never leave home without it, regardless of how many years experience you have.
I am a Real Estate Agent extraordinaire. Right before the final sale, I often find myself out back, behind the house, measuring the oil tank, to determine volume and amount of oil in the tank.The Buyer usually pays the seller for the amount left The Broker-Owner of my office was waving his well worn copy in front of me like a red flag before a bull. Inside are all kinds of mathematical configurations to determine various results. Most importantly, it tells me, step by step, how to determine what is left in the fuel tanks, using measurements and the step by step calculations. He worked the Navy Ships in one of his career incarnations, and this book was his Bible. He told me I would never find one, ever..I did.. on . I felt quite proud of my resourcefulness, and he looked rather perplexed as to how I found a copy. This from a man whose orders from come to the office on a daily basis. Why not five stars? It will take me a lifetime to figure out the rest of the book! I will add the star then.
Comes in very handy during field work. Contains just about anything you'd need for piping, welding, or piping design work.
I was needing a manual to assist me in learning more about my new trade. This book has more than helped me.
Every take out and calculation you need to get the job done right. I was able to be a week ahead of our welder, while fittings were delayed, due to this book.
I lost this in my apprenticeship and never knew how much id need it down the road working as a journeymen welder in small shops.Worth its weight in gold
Very helpful and love that it's compact so I can bring it with me wherever I go!
