Description

Welding is a skill that any do-it-yourself enthusiast needs in his or her arsenal. How to Weld is the perfect introduction for newbies and an excellent refresher for veteran welders--a work so comprehensive that most readers won’t need any further instruction.

In How to Weld, a bestselling installment in the Motorbooks Workshop series, AWS-certified welding instructor Todd Bridigum thoroughly describes process and art of fusing metals, including:

  • Tools and equipment commonly used
  • Types of metals and their weldability
  • Welding techniques
  • Shop and site safety
  • Types of joints.
In addition, all popular types of welding variants are covered, including gas welding, shielded metal arc (or stick) welding, gas metal arc welding (MIG), gas tungsten arc welding (TIG), brazing, soldering, and even metal cutting. Each skills section concludes with a series of exercises, each illustrated with captioned sequential color photography, to fully explain and detail the techniques learned.

Mechanics, automotive enthusiasts, farmers, metalworkers, and other DIYers who can’t bond metal can’t make repairs and they can’t create—in short, they can’t do much of anything except bolt together pre-made parts. With this thorough and completely illustrated all-color tutorial  by an experienced college-level instructor, readers can get on the path fabricating and fixing metals on their own. How To Weld is the only book about welding they'll ever need.

The Motorbooks Workshop series covers topics that engage and interest car and motorcycle enthusiasts. Written by subject-matter experts and illustrated with step-by-step and how-it’s-done reference images, Motorbooks Workshop is the ultimate resource for how-to know-how.
