There are a few books called the Pipefitter's Bible—this is one of them. It has been around for a long time. Mr Thomas W. Frankland wrote several pipe books. He belonged to Local 497 UA in Chicago and taught in the Washburne Trade School on West 31st Street. There are three books left in print— This one—A103, A104—Pipe Trades Pocket Manual, A116—Pipe Template Layout.Two of these are available into Spanish as well. A104 was translated into A238—Manual de Tuberia Comercial and A116—Pipe Template Layout into A239—Trazado De Plantilias para tubos.
