Re: AWS D1.1 v. ASME IX - WPS and PQR

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Yeah, another great advice...
I once tried that way to find ASTMs, and searched all libraries in the Greater LA area.  A library 45 miles away had one set dated 1971.  The local university had a set which was only a couple years fresher.  These antiquities were for use only inside the library.
So, I gave up the idea, bit the bullet and bought one for my private use...

Kevin - so your local book store or library branch has the ASME code on
its shelves?
