AISC Manual Thumb cuts?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: RE: Anyone Get Their New AISC Manual?
Charlie,
When the 2005 "unified" ASD LRFD manual comes out, I'll take one copy without thumb cuts just to get it 3 months early, then I'll take a copy with the thumb cuts after they are ready!

However, how much time and cost savings to 
the production and we the public is there with 
the elimination of the thumbcuts? 
 
Thumb cuts cost about a dollar per book to make and add about 3 months to the printing process for a run of 30,000.
