Carpenter's cheat book on math
Q: Is a carpenter's cheat book on math and other useful information still in publication? I recall a pocket-sized one that used to exist.
John Brock: Yup. It's called the "Pocket Ref." Any decent hardware store, like my local McLendon's, will keep a handy supply. I keep three: one for the shop, one for the pickup and one for the office.
Carol Reed: Your local borg carries them, usually at the contractor's counter.
Editor's Note: "Borg" is an Internet term used to mean "large box stores," and especially home improvement stores such as Home Depot and Lowe's.
