An indispensable job-site guide to the tools of the trade Here is an essential, quick reference designed to go everywhere the job takes you--and help you get the job done right the first time! This valuable guide covers everything from choosing the correct devices, tools, and materials to the efficient management of tools and materials in an actual construction operation. More than 900 detailed illustrations supply quick visual identification of such tools as benders, pipe threaders, drills, saws and blades, cable equipment, welders and torches, digging and compacting equipment, material-handling and test equipment, conduit boxes, electrical connectors, lighting, overcurrent and disconnect devices, electric motors, and more. Plus, complete, ready-to-use descriptions throughout show how these tools and materials are properly utilized in specific applications in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings and facilities. As perfect for time- and cost-conscious contractors as it is for electrical apprentices, maintenance engineers, inspectors, manufacturers, and distributors, the Handbook of Electrical Construction Tools and Materials is the one reference everyone in the trade should have.
