This resource is more than a guidebook or reference, it is a TOOL. Operating as an engineer, technician, or machinist without one is like using a file as a prybar or micrometer as a vise... Maybe when a full electronic copy is available (probably already is) we'll start seeing iPads and Kindles in the machine shop ;)
