All in all this is just the right book for someone who is just starting out
or is good for the old timer as well. It gives all kinds of formulas in an
easy to read format. It goes for around 20-30 bucks but is a good deal. It
is advertised in the HSM as well as Machinist Workshop.
I am not getting paid for this endorsement just want to help others.
