More About The All New Illustrated Guide to Everything Sold in Hardware Stores by Steve Ettlinger; Phil Schmidt
 
 
 
Overview

From first-time homebuyers to frequent hardware store customers, anyone who owns or rents a home will benefit from knowing their way around building and home centers. With the help of this book, purchases will be correct the first time--no multiple trips and returns. You'll learn the difference between drywall screws and deck screws; between faucet washers and neoprene O-rings; and between red wire nuts and blue wire nuts. And that's before we even get to understanding nail gauges and drill bit sizes.

If you've ever searched for a home strore product on the Internet, you'll nderstand the value of this book. Even the most narrow search terms yield a bewildering volume of information. The All New Illustrated Guide to Everything Sold in Hardware Stores allows you to understand the tools and hardware that are applicable to your needs. The next time you talk to a hardware store clerk, rather than asking for "screws about 2 inches long," you'll be able to ask for a #3 gauge 2-1/4-inch-long panhead screws with SAE 5/16" flat washers. And you'll know exactly why this is what you need.

The All New Illustrated Guide to Everything Sold in Hardware Stores is filled with color photos that let you see in lifesize scale what different screws and nails and washers and bolts are called, accompanied by brief descriptions of their recommended uses--so you'll be able to ask for them with accuracy and use them with precision.
