If you’re looking for a pipefitting book that cuts right to the chase, then the Pipefitter’s Handbook is the book for you. It’s not written by someone at a big publishing house looking just to cash in but a real pipe fitter himself, Forrest Lindsey.
Lindsey was in the business for 35 years and he is THE authority when it comes to what you need in the field. At just one pound, the Pipefitter’s Handbook is not only small enough to fit in your pocket, it has all the information you need while working on a job.
Like to avoid all those complicated computations? Then let Lindsey do them for you. The book is actually more like a notebook from the author himself. There are literally thousands of diagrams and useful facts in the book to help you get the job done right.
The book is not just for pipe fitters, though. Steamfitters, plumbers, pipe welders, hydraulic fitters, layout men, even apprentices will find the information in the book helpful while on the job.
