Publication Date: 1989
Book Size: 8.5 x 11

All rules of thumbs and the trades secrets are based on math. A pipe fitter can be okay or pretty good without a strong math knowledge but he or she will never be excellent. The transition from academic math to the actual math used in the pipe trades has been accomplished in the Pipe Fitter's Math Guide. Once learned this math can be used in all trades.

Our most popular book. Sometimes called the Pipefitter's Bible. Many fitters say that if they could have just one book on the job this would be the "one". Mr. W.V. Graves was a pipe fitting instructor at Lee College in Houston, TX. He wrote two books and one of them has been translated into Spanish. A102—The Pipe Fitters Blue Book is A123—Manual de Plomeria (El Libro Azul). His second book is A112—Pipe Fabricators Blue Book. A102 is a lighter blue than A112 and covers mostly the use of fittings while A112 works mostly with fabricating turns and intersections from the pipe itself.

Author: Lindsey

PREFACE This handbook is, to a large extent, the working notebook of the author. It is based on material collected and used by him over a period of thirty-five years of practical experience as a pipefitter. The notes explain and illustrate the basic problems of pipebending and the fabrication of welded fittings together with the principles applied in solving those problems in the shortest and best way. The handbook provides immediate answers, without the need for lengthy calculations, to all kinds of problems found in power and industrial pipebending and the fabrication of welded fittings. It contains sections on soldering and brazing, types K, L and M copper tube, DWV copper drainage tube, plastic pipe, screwed offset connections, rolling offsets, dimensions of Schedule 40, 80 and 120 steel and wrought iron pipe and other. Thus steamfitters, pipe welders, plumbers, hydraulic fitters, layout men and apprentices will find acceptable solutions to pipe bending and fabrication problems on jobs where quick answers are needed the most. The author is indebted to Nicholas Martianoff, managing editor, Clifford Strock, formerly editor and William B. Foxhall, formerly associate editor, of Air Conditioning, Heating and Ventilating for arrangement and for data they have contributed, as well as for their deep interest in the production of this handbook.

SKU: A109

Publication Date: 1995 Revised 2007
Book Size: 4.5 x 6
Pages: 114
Edition: 11th
Cover: Soft Bound
Author: Bowman

This book is a gem. Mr. Bowman wrote this book after he wrote A108—"Modern Methods of Pipe Fabrication". He called the calculations he used, Triangulations. He used the take outs of elbows unknown and flanges to get the angles of the elbows and cut lengths. These aren't easy calculations but he show how to arrive at answers that you need.

I like Mr. Bowman's books. Sometimes he explains parts of pipefitting the way you think it has to be but have never seen it in words and other times he shows how to solve problems you startout wishing you had never seen but once you work one of them, you hope you get such a problem because you know how to work it. Most of all he show how to think about solutions. Look at some of these solutions in the table of contents when you click "See Details".

Pipe fabrication books are often just page after page of charts of numbers. This book is no different because it provides you with the ordinate numbers you need to precisely mark the pipe or template material for the intersections you will need most times.

Manual de Plomeria
SKU: A123

Publication Date: Latest 2007
Book Size: 4.25 x 6.25
Pages: 174
Edition: revised
Cover: Soft Bound
Author: Graves


This book is (A102) Pipe Fitter's Blue Book translated into Spanish.
The translation of the title of this book is not correct. This is not a plumbing book at all but a translation of one of the best known pipefitting books. Occasionally we will have an irate customer angry because he got a plumbing book when he ordered a pipefitting book. It is difficult to explain that he received the correct book when the name is wrong.
