About the Product

Machinery's Handbook has been the most popular reference work in metalworking, design, engineering and manufacturing facilities, and in technical schools and colleges throughout the world for nearly 100 years. The Machinery's Handbook 29 CD-ROM contains the complete contents of the print edition, presented in Adobe PDF format. This popular and well-known format allows viewing and printing of pages that are identical to those of the printed book, permits rapid searching of the entire Handbook, and includes the ability to magnify the view of any page. Navigation aids in the form of thousands of clickable bookmarks, page cross references, and index entries take you quickly to any page referenced. Besides the full print edition, the CD-ROM includes over 500 pages of additional data, mostly material that was published in previous print editions but subsequently removed due to space restrictions. The 29th Edition CD-ROM also provides an expanded array of the popular INTERACTIVE MATH EQUATIONS. Users will be able to instantly calculate cutting speeds, dimensions of bevels, moments of inertia, the measurement of various screw threads, the center of gravity for any shape, hardness of material, volumes, taper angles, matrices, … and much, much more.
