ASME Y14.5M-1994

ASME Y14.5M-1994

ASME Y14.5M-1994

(OP)
The ASME website lists this document as ASME Y14.5M-1994 Reaffirmed 1999 at a price of $105.  I need a copy of this Dimensioning and Tolerancing document.

Amazon.com does not have it new or used
ASM International of which I am a member does not offer it.

Where can I obtain a used copy or a better price for a new one?

Thanks in advance,

Leonard

Metman,
I thought this had been revised by
and iso standard.  I would try to
get it on the internet auction.

DJ,

The following is copied from a customer review at Barnes and Noble Website:

ASME Y14.5M is the industry standard for GD&T. Most companies use it as a basis to train their engineers and drafters. It's ISO and ANSI approved, and can be used in almost any field. It's a great reference, but will take a great deal of time to learn and may require additional training.

So if I understand this correctly it is governed by ASME but approved by ISO and ANSI.

RE: ASME Y14.5M-1994

Metman,
You are probably right about being approved by
these agencies.  I thought they changed the
title like most other things that they approve.
Sorry if I sent you astray.  It is a great resource
and I can see why you would want and need it.
It is invaluable in interpretating the many geometric
symbols.  The only lack that I have seen is that
they do not define fully the centerline of multiple
parts on the same axis which happens with gears on
bearings and other assemblies with common axis.

diamondjim,

You did not lead me astray.  I was already there.  SAE has taken over Mil stds QQ specs and many more and why they do not handle this one also then is a mystery to me.  But let's not get everything into one basket or it might portend the new world order is about to burgion.  If it were easy anyone could do it, even me.

OK enough foolishness.  Can you point me to an internet auction via a link?

RE: ASME Y14.5M-1994

I BOUGHT THIS ABOUT 18 MONTHS AGO- I THINK.

EITHER IT WAS BOUGHT AT GLOBAL ENGINEERING DOCUMENTS (INFORMATION HANDLING SERVICES-IHS) OR AT BROWN'S BOOKSTORE (HOUSTON, TX).

TRY GLOBAL- THEIR INTERNET SITE IS FAIRLY GOOD- YOU WILL HAVE TO CALL BROWN'S BOOKSTORE IN HOUSTON UNLESS THEY HAVE ADDED A WEBSITE SINCE THEN.

Many libraries carry this document, and those that don't carry it can usually get it on inter-library loan.  The only down side to inter-library loan is that it often takes a while - typically 2 to 6 weeks.

RE: ASME Y14.5M-1994

Metman,
Sorry to muddy the water, but there is a difference between the ANSI and ISO specification, although not a great deal. ANSI uses the "envelope principle" and ISO uses the "Independency Principle". This is explained somewhat in the intro to Y14.5M-1994.

RE: ASME Y14.5M-1994

(OP)
Thanks for all the input especially idd's muddy water.  This is good to know as I likely would have passed over it.  I have ordered a used book that explains the std but forget what website at the moment.  There are numerous titles/selections.  I bought one for about $14 and when it arrives it will trigger my memory as to where I bought it which I will pass along here.

regards
