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.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've worked as a consulting electrical engineer for 20 years and have sometimes been embarrassed for not knowing what tools and materials electricians use to install our designs. That information is not taught in college. I just happened on this book by chance on Amazon. The author presents in clear and concise sentences exactly what the tool or material is used for, its benefits and its limitations. Since there are usually many different ways to do an installation, this book also has the affect of jogging your memory of what things are available and may give you an idea on a better way. If you are just starting as a consulting engineer or work for as an engineer for an A/E firm - this book would be a great reference.

I was hoping for something much more comprehensive and complete, with better drawings and pictures or photos.I was able to use some of the material. I am responsible for training electricians, with some having english as a second language, so pictures or good drawings are important.
