The second book in Delmar Learning's three-part series, Intermediate Blueprint Reading for Machinists, 6th Edition provides users with opportunities to learn how to visualize and interpret more complex prints. Ideal for self-paced learning, this workbook-style text continues the emphasis on orthographic projection involving interpretation of lines, views, dimensions, tolerances, notes, and symbols. Advanced areas of inquiry are also addressed, including: welding symbols, fasteners, screw threads, and other related topics.

Product Benefits:

  • short, concise units that build upon each other enable users to move quickly from easy to more difficult concepts
  • double sided drawings in the back of the book provide immediate opportunities for readers interested in machine trades and mechanical engineering to apply new skills
  • comprehensive coverage, including expanded discussion of current ANSI standards, eliminates the need for additional references
