Machinery’s Handbook


The machinists bible

I have been using the Machinery’s Handbook for 30 years. My first was the 14th edition when I started out as a machinist. Throughout my engineering career this handy reference has served in projects large and small.

My 26th edition has accompanied me on three continents and has never disappointed. Machinery’s Handbook is the Bible of the mechanical industries. It provides mechanical and manufacturing engineers, designers, draftsmen, toolmakers, and machinists with a broad range of material data, from the very basic to the more advanced.

It has always provided accurate, concise and easy to locate reference material for any mechanical project. The only thing that could improve this fantastic reference is to have a digital copy on my smart phone.
