    Looking for a good new or used copy

    I have a copy from 22 years ago...very worn & tattered. It was written by Thomas J. O' Brien, Plumbing Inspector from Chicago fourth addition was in 1987. Thanks, Mad Dog

    MadDog I have the fourth edition, Got it from a buddy of mine who is in Local 1, have it for about 15 years or so, great book, keep it in my drawer at work, I'll see if he has an extra one for you, or might be able to get another one, I'll keep you posted

    reference

    Mad Dog, inside the front cover of the book there is an address for Mr.O'Brian for additional copies, in my book his address is crossed out, and this one is in its place, but does not list a phone number like the orignal one did. Might be able to contact him by using this address, 8856 Sutter Cir. #523-D, Huntington Beach, Ca 92646, Give it a shot, hopefully he has some more copies,

    address

    Mad Dog,I looked up Mr. O'Brien's address in the California White pages, it is a match, but the phone number is not listed, I am going to mail him a letter to see if he has any more books for sale, I would like to get another copy as well, I'll let you know if he gets back to me
