I'm cleaning off my bookshelf at home and I have some books I would like to get rid of.

'99 NEC
'99 Mike Holt "Understanding the NEC"
Rex Cauldwell, Wiring a House- Old Edition
'99 Code Check
Audel Pocket Manual-old

If anyone is interested, drop me an email.


I hate to throw them out, but I really don't have much use for them since they are outdated.

Do you typically save all your old reference books?


PS. Sorry if this sounds like a classified ad. Since I'm not selling the books, I assume it's ok to post here.

CT, save them, they won't take up much room.

You may come across someone that needs them someday, and you will have them.

I gave away my 75,(to cousin) 78, and 81(to brother) editions to apprentices, and even though I know I did right, I sure wish I had them back. Even if I were to leave the trade,
one of my grand children might love to have them.

Roger, good advice. I promised someone the books allready, so a promise is a promise!
I will, however, be saving my '02 books for future generations, should I be blessed with children, to enjoy.

Format_C, Cauldwell's book and the pocket manual are still available if you're interested. I see you live in Bridgeport, so you're right down the turnpike from me.

I still have a 1970 copy of the IEE Regs., the same one my father used for years.

Instead of getting rid of old reference books I tend to collect them whenever I can. The only problem is I'm running out of shelf space!
