Found it very interesting and informative but decided to leave it to the experts On first opening the book I immediately found something I didn t know, after 60 years of spannering Recommend This is a well researched and comprehensive guide to undoing those pesky fixings that simply want to stay where they are The book is logically ordered and it is crammed with illustrations of both techniques and any required tools I particularly liked the tongue in cheek humour that pervades the volume Very good value. Having been an amateur mechanic all my adult life, I thought I knew everything there was know about freeing seized nuts bolts Not only was I wrong, but I seem to be lacking many of the tools that the author lists in detail and logical order The Rusty Nut Bible is packed with numerous rescue techniques, accompanied by wit and good humour I found a practical application within days of buying it, when a visiting friend had a puncture in the middle of nowhere and couldn t get the spare wheel out of her boot, due to a severely corroded bolt and floor Once I d removed and changed the wheel casually referring to the book in the process she asked me to take her in the bushes, then marry her the following day Overall, this is a very useful book, which should save much time, energy and many grazed knuckles I m giving it 4 stars, as it could do with some attention to the punctuation and layout. An excellent book that starts with the theory of why things work, or don t in many cases This work is very useful and helps you to understand why you may be causing problems for yourself Running through the whole book is safety, safety, safety The second half of the book covers a sliding scale of advice from the simple, non destructive tasks, through slightly destructive tasks to all out war on the stuck items There s excellent parts on tools, again from sockets at one end of the scale to clothing, tools and onto air compressor style hammers at the other end.
