    I found a neat little book today at a Ace hardware store. It is a Pocket Reference book of everything! It is about 3"x5" and 3/4" thick, but it has everything in there like:

    Density of moist air
    Air tool CFM requirements
    Air hose friction
    Tire size -vs- load rating
    Tire Manufactures codes
    Wood moisture -vs- compressive strength
    Insulation values
    Strength of wood beam
    Element tables
    Computer references and ASCll codes
    Copper wire specs
    Anniversary names
    Area codes
    Morse code
    Bolt torque specs
    Currency exchange
    Countless steel specs
    Friction lost in pipe tables
    Weights and properties of materials
    Countless coversion charts
    Horizontal pipe discharge

    These are just a few examples, the tables are just endless.

    Pocket reference by Thomas J. Glover. Call 1-800-755-7672 (this is out of the 1st edition so don't know if the # is accurate anymore). I've had one for years. It's great! If you could commit everything in it to memory, you could take over the world.
