Vacuum Device Reference Book

I am not sure how I acquired this particular book, but it has a lot of good info for metals in a vacuum. It appears to be focused on building vacuum tubes, but also has some good data for making ion sources. I did a thread search for the author and the title, thinking that it had already been mentioned, but I did not find it. I believe this book is out of print, so it may be difficult to locate.

Handbook of Materials and Techniques for Vacuum Devices (American Vacuum Society Classics) by Walter H. Kohl.
ISBN: 1563963876

It IS out of print. I got my copy from nearly new but still almost a $100 US. A great, useful book.
