Good Reads #5 - The History of American Nuts & Bolts

Here is a book that everyone who sells fasteners should have...and try to read.

There are some amazing illustrations and photos in this book.

For it's history and thoroughness, this book is amazing.  I admittedly haven't read all of it because, unlike the History of the Screwdriver and Screw, it is not an easy read.  But I have gone back to it over the years, and I'll read pieces here and there, and I always put it down having learned something. 

For example, it explains how standardizing the nut and bolt industry came about, and I think that's quite interesting.
