The All New Illustrated Guide to Everything Sold in Hardware Stores is an updated edition of the everyone's favorite hardware shopping guide and reference book.

There's nothing more frustrating than making multiple trips to the hardware store because you purchased the wrong item. Those double--or even triple-trips to the big box store are a thing of the past with The All New Illustrated Guide to Everything Sold in Hardware Stores . 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!

Looking through the range of products at home stores can be downright bewildering, but with this handy guide you'll know exactly what you're looking for and why. 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.

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.
