From a brief history of welding to an overview of its techniques, safety practices, and tools, this is the book that no do-it-yourself builder or mechanic should be without.

Welding is a skill that any do-it-yourself enthusiast needs in his arsenal. Itís only when you can join metal that you can properly repair and create. This book is the perfect introduction for neophytes and an excellent refresher for veteran welders, a work so comprehensive and so complete that most readers wonít need any further instruction.

How to Weld starts with a brief history of welding, an overview of the different types of welding, and a thorough discussion of safety practices. Longtime welding instructor Todd Bridigum describes various tools and types of metals, as well as techniques and types of joints. Bridigum discusses gas, stick, wire-feed (MIG and TIG), even brazing, completing each section with a series of exercises that fully illustrate the skills he has covered. The book concludes with six projects, including construction of a welding table, gantry, and jack stands.
