Default Best pattern development books

Approaching the middle of my career and would like to start collecting some sheet metal books. I hope some day when I am long gone a family member or friend will stumble across my collection and it may spark some interest.

I am fair at layout but can get the job done using non traditional methods such as 3d cad and pattern development software. I have been trained through local 104 apprenticeship program and have always been very interested in traditional layout methods (triangulation, radial and parallel development)

With that being said, Is there any pattern development books out there you would recommend?

Whats the deal with Sheet Metal Pattern Drafting And Shop Problems by McGraw-Hill Education? They want a couple hundred bucks for this book. Is it worth it?

Default Ref: Sheet metal books

As long as I have been doing sheet metal work( since the 70s) Audels Sheet Metal Pattern Drafting has been the Bible of sheet metal books. Now out of print used copies can be found for purchase on Amazon.com or eBay.com . It covers all aspects of the industry as it was in the early to mid 20th century (old school).

Default Kaberlien

I like the Audels pattern layout because all the old school stuff, but for learning solid layout practice the three Kaberlien books are [in my opinion] hands down the best.
