Metrics for Mechanics and Other Practical People.
Richmond, Doug
This handbook on the metric system is printed in a large type for ease of reading. It includes several tables of often-used facts. A brief background of the metric system is presented, followed by chapters on metric uses with electricity, length, pressure, temperature, threaded fastenings, tools, torque, volume, and weight. Each chapter provides a brief background of the metric concept followed by straightforward explanations of how to convert between metric and U.S. measures (using multiplication only). The handbook is directed toward mechanics and other craftsmen who seek a quick solution without any mathematical explanation. (JBW)
