    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.
