This book features valuable hints, practical tips, comments, and cautionary notes throughout. This covers at least 99% of the field alignment problems encountered by most mechanics. And finally this guide will assist you in making many dollars whether you are an apprentice, journeyman, engineer, student, or instructor.
Please keep in mind that this book is only a tool. It can no more make the alignment for you on its own than the wrench with which you have unbolted the motor. But with A Millwright’s Guide to Motor Pump Alignment, Second Edition, after you have taken an accurate set of dial indicator readings and allowed for the pre‐determined sag factor, you won’t have to wait for the bottom of the ninth to get that grand slam win.
