I love this Book. This edition is way thicker than the 28th was, and more so even than 29, which was an Anniversary Issue. Luckily I usually skip a couple editions each time it's time to repurchase. And boy am I glad I didn't get the 29th!!! This is the BIBLE as far Machinery's Handbook editions are concerned. There really is a wealth of new/re-included information in this volume. I use my Machinist Calculator a lot, but sometimes, whilst drinking coffee, and sitting at the bench, there's just something special about leafing though the ol bible and and doing things the old analog way.
Also, to me it feels somewhat precious, and even though the book may be used by dirty people, in a dirty place, the reverence for keeping it pristine is palpable and enjoyable. But I digress.
As far as, should I buy one for the first time?
If I was buying one for the first time, I'd be glad to get this one. Especially for the price for which I got it, 63 dollars with shipping from Rainbow_Books, you can not beat that with a Baseball Bat anyday of the week that'sa great deal!!! IF it's available to you from Rainbow_books and it's 59 dollars plus shipping, BUY IT! I bought from them, more than once now, and they are quick, the item arrives relatively well packaged, and mine was totally new and pristine, so. DO IT.
