Talk about The Complete Illustrated Guide to Everything Sold in Hardware Stores


furious ox
Not nearly as comprehensive as the title suggests. I was hoping for something that would help me ID a variety of antique and salvage hardware, but this barely scratches the surface. In fact, I have several pieces of *new* vintage hardware that's not covered at all (storm hangers and adjuster, parliament hinges and others. I can go to my local Ace affiliate and find all sort of stuff that this book doesn't bother to mention.

If you are into antique hardware this is not a valuable book.
IWantYou
I was disappointed with this book. It is too basic and really doesn't help with the obscure stuff that I am interested in. If you are just getting started doing work around the house it is okay but I don't know if it would really be that helpful compared to other books available.

Really good reference. I'm glad I own it, but the day it arrived I found a newer printing at Garden Ridge for $4.OO less than I paid with shipping included.

No, it won't tell you how to build a deck. This book will, though, be thoroughly helpful in explaining everything that you'll use to do it.
