You know the "drill"

November 28, 2022 By: Tony Miri (Northville , United States)

Comments
If you've seen the other books from this company then you know what to expect. You will not be disappointed if you need any kind of info about fasteners.

Pros
Thorough and complete. Last book about fasteners you'll ever need.

Cons
One page is torn. Printing defect? Amazon's fault? Who knows. Won't affect me enough to matter.

Fastener Black Book, An Oustanding Must Have Tool for Professionals

April 28, 2022 By: John Smith, John-of-All (Dayton, United States)

Comments
I have used the Fastener Black Book for about 8 years. I saw it at a business that specialized in Nuts and Bolts when I was a Fabricator/Mechanic in a Truck Shop. I looked it over, and put it on my personal list of things I needed to have. Once I purchased it, I wished I had done so when I first saw it. I use it constantly. I have learned so much about fasteners. Now I am working with CAD and GD&T, and I am using it more than ever in conjunction with the Engineers Black Book.

Pros
Packed full of all the fastener information I need, and more. I never stop learning.

Cons
I'm old(er) now, and need reading glasses. Some new revised Large Print editions would be very nice.

Comments
I’ve always found these books good for identifying unknown nuts and bolts that I come across as a mining engineer. The various torque tables are also useful.

Pros
Simplicity

Cons
Needs more detail on Whitworth and BS fasteners - there are relatively few sizes and these fasteners are still used in many applications.
