I have been using the Engineer's BlackBook for close to a year. I am a manufacturing engineer in a train production factory and the book is a great resource to solve non-conformances and prepare re-work procedures. It has helped me prepare anything from designs, to tooling routing and pathing, surface finishing, and setting up work stations.

Pros
Concise, all in one resource for a multitude of cross-discipline information.

Cons
Some additions that would be helpful:
1. Welding symbols, welder types, spool information, etc
2. Types of additive manufacturing (3D printing), pros and cons of each
3. Female adult physical dimensions in addition to male (5th to 95th percentile)
4. fatigue and fracture types, causes, and cases (images for investigation)
5. lean manufacturing (5S, Kaizen, wastes, etc) and six sigma concepts

ENGINEERS BLACK BOOK

November 15, 2021 By: Alan Proud (SOUTHPORT, Australia)

Comments
As someone just starting in machining this book gives me information that would of taken years to find any other way, it really is the bible of machining.

Pros
All the information you need in one book.

Cons
The book could be a little bigger, my eyes are not as good as they used to be.
 

Fantastic

November 12, 2021 By: Mr Lewis J Palmer (Swansea, United Kingdom)

Comments
Amazing book for all your machining needs.

Pros
Basic information about pretty much everything.
Clear to read.

Cons
A bit expensive, but a small investment compared to the Machinery's handbook.
 

Fantastic and Concise

Comments
This book is actually pretty awesome. It has a concise list for quick references on just about anything you could need out in the field. I love the color, detail and quick explanations of this book. The downside is: you have to put your own page tabs in. This takes about 20 minutes or so to get it perfect. I love the book overall and have it at work with me when I need to take a gander.

Pros
Concise lists, excellent illustrations, easy to navigate.

Cons
One must put their own marker tabs in.
