This is the math of pipe fitting written as simply as it can be. 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. Once learned this math can be used in any trade because the math doesn't change. Showing how to use the calculator makes it even better. This book not only contains the pipe fitting math formulas but teaches how to use them. Pipe Fitter's Math Guide was written to provide the math for pipefitters directly. It is about as straightforward as you can get.

Most of our orders are shipped in the way that is most time efficient and cost effective. In example, if you have a small order that is going to California it will be shipped by USPS Priority, as it is the most time efficient and cost effective. However, since we are in North Carolina, a small order may be sent by UPS Ground to some parts of Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina since it will arrive next day. If you are needing a package shipped by a specific carrier please let us know in the "Customer Notes" during the Checkout process. We are not held responsible for packages that are not delivered to you for lack of information. All international packages will be shipped by USPS Priority Express International unless otherwise chosen during the Checkout process.
Our shipping hours are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. All USPS Priority orders need to be in before 12 p.m. EST to guarantee same day shipping. Any orders placed after 3 p.m. EST will be processed and shipped on the next business day. In example, orders that are placed Wednesday evening with UPS 2nd Day Shipping will be shipped out Thursday afternoon and will arrive the following Monday.
Although we will be offering UPS Next Day or UPS 2nd Day, if your package does not get there on time, you will not be refunded for the shipping costs. We cannot control how UPS or USPS operates.
Also, we are limiting our international shipping to countries that have opened their borders to trade with the US. If you do not see your country listed during Checkout, please email us.
