Since the first edition published more than 100 years ago, Machinery’s Handbook has been the most popular engineering resource of all time. Universally considered the principal reference in the manufacturing and mechanical industries, the Handbook is the ultimate collection of essential information needed by engineers, designers, drafters, metalworkers, toolmakers, machinists, educators, students, and serious home hobbyists. From engineering and design departments, machine and metalworking shops, and a wide range of manufacturing and industrial facilities, to countless classrooms and workshops worldwide, this is the must-have technical reference.

Note that the large print edition measures 7" x 10" and the type is the size of normal reference works. It is not an enlarged print edition for sight-impaired readers; for such readers, we recommend the Machinery's Handbook 31 Digital Edition, which enables on-screen enlargement of text and data.
