Product Information

Originally published in 1907, this book explains the principles of mensuration as applied in measuring sheet metal work, taking as examples the various shapes of formed sheet metal products. The purpose of the book is to show how to obtain the length, area and volume of any article of sheet metal, so that the pattern cutter or mechanic may accurately measure the material required for a given class of work. The style of treatment is very simple, and furnishes a quick reference for everyday use.
