Excellent source for fastener information, I reference this book almost every day at work. I'm a quality analysts for a fastener distribution company

Pros
easy to read and easy find what parts you need information for

Cons
Multiple spelling and grammar mistakes for instance page 102 "Fahrenheit" and "Celsius" are spelled wrong. Makes me nervous that some of the values associated with parts may be wrong as well.
