Machinery’s Handbook” is a classic reference volume that first appeared more than 100 years ago. The 30th edition, published by Industrial Press, is now out and is available for the first time in a large-print version. For those of us who have aging eyesight (like me) the 2,896 pages in this latest edition are more readable, but as useful as ever.

The new edition contains major revisions of existing content, plus a lot of new material. The new stuff includes an expanded metrology section including v-blocks and micrometers, vernier and dial calipers; a powder metallurgy section including additive manufacturing; information on sheet metal, presses and press working; and many new specs on drilling, reamers, grit sizes and more.

In addition, the metric content has been expanded throughout the book. Metric units are shown adjacent to the U.S. customary units in the text. Many formulas are now given with equivalent metric expressions, and metric examples have been added.

The large-print edition measures 7 by 10 inches. It weighs close to 6 pounds.
