Trade Labor Time Books?....

Anyone find or use one of those industry standard labor books. the one that tell you how much work one guy should be bale to get done with a certain piece of equipment? I realize everyone works different and different locations offer obstacles but I just thought maybe it would be worth looking into for a ball park idea. I know how I work and I feel like I work harder, faster, smarter, which ends up being more efficient then most guys so I hate to bid on jobs off my times.

Where did you find them? I've looked at all the local libraries and done a little search at border and Barnes and Noble with no success.

Thanks

I know this has come up a couple of times. Do a search of the threads, it seems like there is a couple of obscure books out there with that info but I can't remember which ones.
