[Excerpt From Preface] The material in this book is a compilation of essential reference most likely to be encountered by the building construction drafter's daily work. Having spent many years as a teacher of building construction drafting with students in both technical schools and colleges, I found it necessary to compile essential material to give the user quick and handy reference and to provide a most important feature?a saving of drafting time. Where I deemed it necessary, I?ve given detailed descriptions of materials, methods, and data for clarification and for a keener understanding of the subject in question. Numerousillustrations throughout the reference book serve as aids in visualizing the subjects. The Building Construction Drafter's Vest Pocket Reference Book is to the best of my knowledge, the first ofits kind with so many fingertip facts. It includes tables, charts, and text on soils, footings, joist spans, trusses, allweather foundations, lumber products, doors and windows, glass, concrete, and stone. Tables for thedetailing of structural steel shapes are included, together with data on steel lintels and the expansion of metals, masonry, and timber. Bookseller Inventory # 20160106001
