Looking for reference charts to hang on the wall.

Point me in the direction of the best reference charts/wall posters you know of - for printing out or request by mail.

The Make blog pointed out this chart of bolt types today, and I'm looking for more of the same. Engineering- or manufacturing-related a plus, but not required.

I was also able to obtain a chart of common op-amp circuits from a chip supplier awhile ago by filling out a request form on their website - they sent a poster in the mail a few days later. What other companies or organizations do you know that have similar giveaways? I don't really care if it's blatant promotional material, as long as it has useful information on it.

It's not a free giveaway by post, but that Engineer's Guide to Drinks is now available in vector format.

Best answer: A twofer: a poster of US frequency band allocations (front) and dimensionless numbers (back) from Omega Engineering.

I am aware that this is not exactly what you are looking for, but if you are an engineer that likes or has cats, you will appreciate the nerdiness of the Guide to House Cat Coat Color and Patterns.

I have this huge chart of biochemical pathways on my wall. You used to be able to request a free copy online; I don't know if that's still true.

You should keep this poster in your time machine.

For "reference" closer to the Time Cube end of the spectrum, I think Paul Laffoley's art is pretty cool.

Best answer: Also take a look at www.cheat-sheets.org.
