    5-0 out of 5 stars Welding: Principles and Applications
    Book was in very good condition. Prompt shipment. Ordered on a Friday, recieved on Monday. Very happy. Will definitley do business with this person again if such a need arises.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Extremely thorough theory, could use some practical guidelines
    This is book is basically a college text on welding-- anda fine one at that.It covers the theory of all the major welding processes (MIG, TIG, Stick, Flux-cored) in dazzling detail with beautiful color photos and diagrams.This includes some simple-to-understand physics of each welding process, explanations of various types of welding equipment, weld joint designs, welding positions, weave patterns, etc.If you read this book cover-to-cover, you will have a thorough grasp of all the theoritical aspects of welding.No other text even comes close to this book in these areas.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A college text on Welding
    This is the book we used in a college-level welding course I took. It covers virtually every aspect of welding from oxy-fuel, stick, MIG, TIG, SMAW, cutting, basic metallurgy, brazing, welding certification requirements, etc. This text is very detailed and you can directly reference chapters on welding processesyou're interested in doing without having to read the entire (very thick) book. It is an excellent reference and covers step-by-step how to safely setup and use all types of welding gear, how to lay correct beads, how to spot defects, proper weld preparation, safety, and lab exercises to test your skills.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference book
    I find this book to be a very handy reference.Sometimes the equations get very involved, but I do like the way the material is presented.The font is kinda wierd (newest edition), but thats just a subjective thing for me. I also like the design section in the back, and the depth of information on design considerations is neat.Including this book, Swanson's analysis book is another good addition for joggling your memory on composite analysis that you took in grad school. :)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not half bad
    When I took a composite materials course as a senior at NCSU, the teacher didn't.In a fit of desperation, I went to the bookstore and looked at all (3) composite books.This one used the same symbology as my prof's lecture notes, so I bought it, despite the price.3-0 out of 5 stars composites-trends

    5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute must for every metalsmith / jewelry designer.
    In this volume Oppi Untracht offers an excellent overview of metal jewelry making. The seemingly limitless information offered is technically precise,and beautifully illustrated.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Overview versus Technical Know How
    This is a good book for those wanting a broad overview of all aspects of jewellery making with metals.It contains good illustrations of finished pieces; however, it is not a book that gives step by step instructions.So, if you are looking for a 'how to' book, look elsewhere.Otherwise it is a useful reference but not essential.

    5-0 out of 5 stars MY NUMBERONE BOOK!!
    It is my so called bible.I bought it 15 years ago at $50.00 from a mall bookstore and was so happy how cheap i bought it for as its return its value 50 times over since...if you had to own just one book this is it!...grant you it should be reprinted and up dated. alot of what we do does not change much but in some fields it does.color would be great. mine has many color plates (1985 ed).it seams alot for a book but if it was printed today would cost alot more(id buy a new one at what ever cost), and imho compared to many that ive spent more on do not compare..buy it,and hug it as ioften do.its a jewel!lol...i wonder if "oppi" is still liveing?. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Advanced Strength and Applied Elasticity 4th Edition
    Many Engineering text books lately do not seem to be written well.I feel that this is not the fault of the authors as much as it is the fault of the editor.This book overall is not in my worst text book list, but can be improved very easily.I have given it a 2 star rating, meaning that it still can be improved upon and until it is improved it is a difficult book to follow.4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect
    First few chapters are well treated but advanced topics are not covered in detail.For example, beams on elastic foundation chapter is not covered extensively.To conclude,anyone interested in advanced mechanics of materials should own it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not Practical
    As an Aerospace Engineer (structures), I found this to be the one book that remains on my shelf. It has valid and accurate ACEDEMIC explanations of structural systems - but it does not lend itself to practical implementation of those methods...and many other books do! If this book is supplementing a curriculum, it will serve its purpose well. However, if you actually plan to use what you've learned - not here.

    Editorial Review

    To take something as ordinary as wire and present it as a trueart form is an amazing achievement, and this book does exactly that.According to Suzanne Slesin, the story of wire as a component of usefuland decorative household objects began in Slovakia in the 17th century,where tinkers used thin strands of iron to repair household pottery.The art of wirework flourished and traveled throughout the Austro-Hungarian Empire during the next century, becoming highly developed andquite popular by the end of the 1800s; utilitarian objects such asbaskets, bottle racks, serving dishes, plant stands, trivets, andbirdcages were both made of and embellished with wire. Sadly, wireornamentation as a decorative art is mainly a thing of the past, butbecause these objects are so sturdy, they can often be purchased asantiques. The book has a long directory of European and Americansources for wirework. ... Read more

    Book is great. Got me back on track. Good illustrations, great info.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Introductory Book on Welding
    I found this to be the best introductory book on welding that I have seen.Quite of few books give you spotty pieces of information and tell you to "go do it."Others are pricy text books designed for a full school course on welding.This is a straight comprehensive introduction to welding.It starts you off with safety, materials needed to start work and the advantages and disadvantages of each major type of welding.Richard Finch has a smooth writing style and includes good suggestions and advice, including common amature mistakes to avoid.I would have given it 5 stars, but it was last revised in 1997 and some information about equipment is getting dated. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book.
    I like this book a lot.Good information.One sentence annoys me though.On page 7 the author states, "Pure oxygen is flammable."This is a false statement.It made me wonder if he ever used an oxyacetylene outfit when I first read it.Who hasn't accidentally tried to light the oxygen first instead of the acetylene and found that nothing happens?Higher concentrations of oxygen increase the rate of oxidation/combustion but oxygen isn't a fuel, i.e., it isn't flammable.But pure oxygen makes things that are flammable more dangerous.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Super!Carry it in your toolbox for Oxy Welding
    If you can afford only one book on Oxy Welding get this one, no make that two so you can have one in you toolbox and one to replace it when the one in your toolbox "grows legs" and walks off.This is "thee" book for the practical weldor and fits nicely into your toolbox.Read it, use it, take it with you where ever you go to work. The author is writing to you as your coworker not as an instructor or engineer though he is still showing you how to do it correctly and SAFELY.

    I have access to Peterson's original book (older than me?) and to the first edition of this one, published in 1974. I recommend buying used copies of the old ones. They contain the same info and are easier to use since the charts are bigger.

    Absolutely essential book for anybody interested in stresses in notched bodies; structural analysts who like to use the 'back of the envelope', finite element analysts, fracture mechanicists; designers in aerospace, rail, heavy machinery, light machinery, medical devices, almost anything you can name. Book has been updated from the original; even if you have the original edition, this 2nd edition is well worth having for your engineering reference library.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful photos, but not much else
    The photos are great!There was little information to really tell about each gun pictured.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book of Guns, Indeed!
    This book looks sweet on our coffee table. The pictures are beautiful- especially the ones of antique rifles. My knowledge of firearms has greatly increased just by reading it in my spare time. There is fascinating history about guns that I had never heard of previously. I like the way the book is organized by firearm type and country of origin. I'm truly glad I purchased this book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting Historical Review but lacking modern details
    I have been learning a lot about modern handguns, and I wanted a book that would give me some history of guns, how their operation has evolved, and an overview of the types of handguns in existance.This book is definitely interesting and fun to flip through, and has some great photos.I liked the photos of the older flint-lock pistols, pepperbox revolvers, and guns of the old-west.Some of the oddities were especially interesting, including the Japanese sword-gun (not a bayonet, but a full-size sword with a handle that was a gun).Also, I liked the WWII Liberator, made by GM to be cheap, easy to build, and to dropped in mass on Germany for partisans to get.However, I felt the book was lacking in a few key areas.I understand that the author can't possibly include every gun ever.But why are there so many examples of home-made guns throughout the years, and no entry for the Glock?The Glock was a revolutionary gun, with an interesting history of unknown Gaston Glock with no gunmaking experience making a gun for the Austrian army that bucked much conventional thinking regarding guns.Who would think a plastic frame would make a reliable gun?Now, every gun store you go into is packed with Glocks, and it is the favorite sidearm of many LEOs including police and FBI.Most CCW books I read recommend the Glock.Half the new guns I see today are essentially Glock copies (Springfield XD, Steyr, S&W SW, etc).The only mention of the Glock in this book is in a side-panel about SWAT teams, where it mentions that SWAT teams use Glocks among other weapons.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for the self-starter
    Jack Andrews' "New Edge of the Anvil" is a great book for getting started in blacksmithing.It has clear text, detailed pictures, and inspiring blacksmith's profiles.I find myself referencing it often.Highly recommended.
