Default Dale Crane's books

greetings,

perusing some thread topics across forum interests & i find
a few common references for Dale Crane's books & their
resulting curriculum.
i have found & purchased Leo Meyer's Sheet Metal shop practice
but feel a need for additional resources.
would someone like to suggest which of Dale's books would give
me another starting point for an extremely interesting technical
industry?

No book required, learn pythagreans Theorum, similar triangles, and basic trigonometry as far as sin, cos, tan functions are concerned, if you want to go abouve and beyond learn how those trig functions graph and you can circulate it into your kit. The first two however will get you thru 99% of most things and its simple topics discovered 2500 years ago.
