Flash Cards for Pipe!
The book covers for Fitter Facts are kinda funky but the content of the inside are just right for learning or refreshing your knowledge of pipefitting info. The first page gives you a question about pipe fitting then you flip the page and above the next question is the answer for the question on the previous page. You can use them to study for tests or just keep yourself fresh by looking through the three books.

My dad was an ag teacher so I grew up in a shop. I loved tools but he soon learned to keep folding rulers away from me. I thought I knew a lot about them until I got a call this week suggesting that we carry "Inside" Rulers. I thought Thomas Ford was pulling my leg. He assured me that he wasn't and gave me enough info to find them through my distributor. As you can see the folding part of the ruler is on the top as you measure. It is also called a lay flat ruler. I remember a bump knocking my folding rulers off the pipe and I remember wishin' and a hopin' that when I got down to it that it was still in one piece. Lay flat Inside Rulers make a lot of sense.
