The Pipefitter's Handbook is not just some mishmash of technical data written by some big company to sell a book, it’s actually written by a pipe fitter himself. Forrest Lindsey was a pipe fitter for more than 35 years.
Unlike other pipe-fitting books, the Pipefitter’s Handbook gets right down to the answers you need, no need for complicated and lengthy calculations.
In fact, just like the books says, this handbook is really just a working notebook of the author. It contains thousands of facts and diagrams, all relevant to pipe fitters themselves.
This book is an essential not just for pipe fitters but steamfitters, plumbers, pipe welders, hydraulic fitters, layout men, even apprentices.
A Timeless Classic!
Compact and pocket-sized, this handy reference contains thousands of facts and figures relevant to pipefitters, steamfitters-anyone concerned with layout and installation of pipe.
Provides answers to all sorts of problems indigenous to power and industrial pipebending, and the fabrication of welding fittings in both shop and field.
Logically categorizes all material according to job description, supporting each working table with a clear example of how to use it.
Includes a special reference section that gives instant data on the 24 most useful on-the-job subjects, such as spark tests for metals, sheet metal weights, valve types, weights and measures, and many more.
Discusses all types of bends; elbows, tees, and crosses; plastic pipe; soldering and brazing; travel and run; fitting dimensions; threading pipe; relative physical properties; and more.
Anna Marie Grover says: "I would recommend this book to anyone in the piping field."
