Good Reference Book

Anyone here use Thomas J. Glover’s “Pocket Reference”?
I have kept a copy of two around, in the truck, AS and other various locations for years. It has been a great “Now just how in the heck do I figure this out” reference tool for me. It covers all type stuff. Like how many 2d finishing nails in a pound (1,350 if you’re interested) to wood characteristics, to bolt torque specification, to etc… The ISBN number is 1-885071-00-0.

Darn good for the do it yourselfer.

I found one at a tool store, years ago, and had to add it to our book shelf...I don't grab it very often, but when I do, it's got all the info I need...kind of a pre-internet, 'Google' replacement...
