I have used this text since 1990 while employed as an inspector and as a metrologist and find the text well written and very useful. This is a good text, along with others, to use when writing the procedures for your instruments.If it were a little more in depth on the calibration subject it would even better suit my needs. If you follow the recommendations for the illustrated applications and general information you can calibrate most gauges and measure most applications, etc. More hands-on texts such as this one are needed as the skilled craftsmen disappear and are replaced with "textbook" trained individuals.
