However, the quality of this book I received makes me think twice. My book was purchased brand new but it looks like it has been sitting for a while.
-The binding and glue is coming undone without ever having opened it (Pictured)
-Some of the pages aren't stamped with a radius correctly at the corners and some pages are stuck together. (Pictured)
-5% of the pages are creased (Pictured)
-Most of the pages have ripples from what looks like it being compressed for too long (Pictured)
I would be fine with everything if the binding wasn't coming undone. This book will not last in a shop and the pages WILL come apart. I will be getting a replacement and hopefully its better.
I will update.
Received 2nd book (Last Picture). No creasing, no mis-stamping. Same issue with binding coming undone. Really disappointing. Really wish I would have got the digital one.
So needles to say I was not surprised when I flipped through the pages and realized what an incredible book it is. Absolutely a must have reference book for anyone working in the mechanical world.
So what about page bleed through? Well the book is big, 10-1/4 x 7-1/8 and 3" thick. The pages are half the thickness of standard copy paper which begs the question Why?? I concluded if the pages were twice as thick the book would also be twice as thick making it 6" instead of 3" thick. The print is normal size type 10-11 and sharp and dark. The binding is fine but for a big heavy book I would take it easy on stressing the glue or throwing it in your tool box.
I'm trying to avoid whining or responding to whining but thought for those more interested in the books content and not what the shipping box looked like you got my 2 cents.
It is the same darn thin pages that made me give this a 2 star.
One would think after the fiasco with thin pages in the previous version, Industrial Prints would have figured not to use the same thin paper in their latest 30th edition of the book... This isn't the case. I've attached a picture of the same page used in a review in the 29th edition of this book titled "Please see photos before buying this book" by G. James on February 22, 2012
It is evident that the pages of this 30th edition is as bad as the old version of the 29th edition.
Content rating is above 5 stars, there is no question about this. It may not be for everybody, because it may have more than you ever need, but it's always good to have a reference.
Quality: It's true what they say about the paper quality, you can see a significant difference between editions.
I believe, based on the print in this main reference, I could have ordered the smaller version and read it easily enough. Also note there is one thin book, it may be called Students Guide, used as a teaching aid/classroom reference which is quite a bit thinner than the main reference and thus has a limited amount of info. And there is the Pocket Companion, which I am not familiar with.
Dimensions: Size is roughly similar to a college or classroom textbook.
Highly recommend this over the toolbox version (lets be honest, few will put the toolbox version IN their toolbox)
Instead, I recommend getting this larger print version and the Pocket Companion guide. Trust me, its worth the increase in cost to never need another reference guide/book again to satisfy your engineering, machining, or manufacturing concerns.
Note: I use this every day!
