Any design engineer should have this book. It's got everything from fastener dimensions (if you have to model/draw them in your design) to std. clearance&interference fits to material properties and machining speeds & feeds.

If you're designing, manufacturing, or planning most any products that aren't circuit boards, it's probably a good idea to get a copy of this book.

This book was recommended for a class I was taking but not required...I'm so glad I got it! It's been more than helpful so far and I don't know what I would do without it. It's full of equations and charts that any mechanical engineer or machinist should never be without.

When trying to figure out the standard accepted dimensions or clearances or whatever, for doing anything mechanical, this book is probably the way to go. The internet is chock full of forums that clog up the search engines, where tool-bags argue over irrelevant things instead of just stating the information you are looking for. So instead of wasting your time wading through that, just crack open this miniature cinder-block of a tome, and find what you're looking for in there.

Things I would improve:

1. Include more background and textbook type explanations at the start of each section. Trying to figure out the basics from the incredibly detailed tables can sometimes be a pain.

2. Make a digitized version. If I could search through this bad boy by getting access to an online version with the purchase of this book, and simply typing what I need into a search bar, instead of leafing through the 87 page index, I would be a very happy engineer.

This handbook is a must for any mechanical engineer. Chock-full of useful(hard to find) data. It has everything from shaft alignment to mechanical/chemical properties of materials to wind-chill calculations. Unlike most engineering references, it's easy to use!

I am a recent B.S. mechanical engineering graduate and I purchased the 28th Ed. of Machinery's Handbook shortly after starting my first job. I really wish I would have had this book during school. It is an excellent reference for mechanical engineers, machinists, and the like. I am now using it for various mechanical design projects at work. If you know somebody that has a copy, (it's okay if it's an older edition), flip through it and see if it's something you could use. I thought it was basically a condensed version of almost everything useful that I learned in four years of college. Enjoy!

The materials in this book were helpful in an important products liability case. The book describes processes and procedures- the how to's. I hope more people in industry refer to it.

This is an excellent reference book. I own an electroplating company and I had a machine shop owner call me one day telling me about how I should plate his parts. I was flabbergasted at how knowledgeable he was about another industry so I asked him how he knew about by business and he told me of this book. It has sat on my desk ever since and is constantly used for reference from tolerances, threading, and many other technical questions that are not easy to find on Google. The index is excellent and no doubt a result of twenty eight editions being published. There are times that I am on the phone with a customer, I seriously doubt that I will find what I am looking for in the index and wallah it is right there. Amazing!

This is a wonderful refrence to anyone working in the industry, however I am seeing prices ranging from 200-800 dollars!? Are you people out of your mind? If someone buys this book for that amount of money then it had better be damn near bomb proof which this book certainly is not. I'm sorry but this is far too much money to spend on a refrence book, no matter how useful it is. Ayone that has bought this book so far has been ripped off by the sellers selling it at hugely inflated prices. I have seen the 29th edition of this book selling for less than $120 NEW. There is no way I am buying this book untill the prices have been brought down to a more reaonable level.
