Welding For Dummies (Free PDF)

Description
Welding For Dummies helps you understand the basics of how welding works and lets you begin practicing several of the most prominent and useful welding techniques. I walk you through the fundamentals that hold true for all types of welding, and I dig into the details of specific welding processes — stick, mig, tig, and more — to show you how to practice those skills in a safe, productive way. Don’t worry; I don’t have you welding the Statue of Liberty’s torch back onto her hand or anything, but I do hope this book puts you well on your way to achieving the welding goals you’ve set for yourself.

One of my favorite aspects of Welding For Dummies is that you can move around within it however you want and still end up with a huge amount of welding knowledge. You may initially be interested in one welding process but quickly discover you should be reading about a totally different process, and that’s okay — you can jump to that other discussion without worrying that you’ve missed something important. Just beware of paper cuts from flipping back and forth between chapters.
