4Well worth the money
By Hooligan
I grew up doing HVAC and Plumbing. Now I teach plumbing. I have taught plumbing for 19 years now and I have been out of the business so long I had a hard time telling students how to set their prices. This is the thing they need. It gives you the man hours to install things up to the individual fittings. I would suggest anyone going into business to consider this. Not the DeWalt BluePrint Reading Reference is not worth the money I spent on it. I dinged it a star because One needs a magnifying glass to read the think. It is small like one of the Gideon Bibles they give out except many time thicker. Please print this in regular size and then you would earn 5 stars.
