   Good reference for homebuilt aircraft builders.
The spiral binding is great, allowing the book to stay open on any page. I have given it only three stars because of what is missing. I would like to have specific information on rivets and bolts describing how to interpret the part numbers and what type of drill to use for each size. The books requires some hardware - charts.
   A must
I like this product because it is very easy to use and very convenient to consult. It is a resume of the basic things we use every day. It is my first book of the type, I don 't know another book in the same style. It has some despendable information, such as measure conversion tables, and there is a mistake in the metricimperial caliper reading procedure.
   Great Reference For Mechanics, Pilots and Racers
The publisher ASA does a consistently great job with their materials. Although the handbook is targeted at the needs of aviation mechanics, it offers a wealth of information for pilots interested in the maintenance of their aircraft. The topics covered include basic metallurgy, taxi signals, identification of nuts and bolts plus fittings, use of various tools, corrosion identification and management, batteries from theory to maintenance. Many helpful tables such as battery voltage vs % charged. The book is pocket book size, but spiral bound, which allows it to lay flat. Paper is of heavy stock and is easy to read. For the pilot there are pages of illustrations to help identify parts, which greatly facilitates conversations with shops. For the racer, many of the practices concerning hardware, plumbing and electrical systems are very similar.
   A must have
Every air mechanic toolbox should have one of these : Great for a quick check of known standard torque tables, one conversions, bendability, torque wrench variation equations, voltage drops, and more.
   A must for your toolbox
Every aircraft mechanic or homebuilder should have one of these in their toolbox. This one replaced my older version, which was beginning to fall from use. When I think I know it all, I find myself referring to this abbreviated-condensed and well-written version of FAA AC-43.13. Also very helpful for those who perform their own preventive maintenance, as described in FAR 43 Appendix A.
   Who spilled coffee on my book?
This book came straight out of the box set damaged. I bought it brand new, which i thought would mean that the pages would at least be clean.
   Great book. I kept this in my toolbox for ...
Book is great! I kept this for reference in my toolbox. I like the sections on riveting and bending radiuses for sheet metal. It has been helpful to me.
