When specifying fasteners (nuts, bolts, washers, machine screws etc) for a job, I'd like to to be sure that I've fully considered not only the application and the material spec of the product to be fastened, but also the fastener, as well as the appropriate torque setting to be applied.

So, can anyone recommend a good mechanical fasteners reference book worth buying?

Thanks in advance,

For information of this type I generally go straight to the manufacturers information. Most manufacturers have the information specific to their product online or available upon request, and this allows you to design to specific and accurate parameters rather than just a broad generic standard. The manufacturer can also give details on the material qualities etc if you need to calculate quite exact values. The biggest plus side, it's generally free.
