Content descriptions

General Note: Includes index.
Formatted Contents Note: An overview of welding processes -- General tools, materials, and safety equipment -- Oxyacetylene welding -- Oxyacetylene cutting -- Shielded metal arc welding: arc welding and stick welding -- Wire feed welding processes: MIG welding and flux-cored arc welding -- Brazing and soldering -- Welding tasks and tips.
Summary, etc.: Master the fundamentals of welding, brazing, and soldering so you can repair equipment both big and small, from a garden rake to a mower. Learn to add a bale spear to your tractor bucket, build a wall-mount hay feeder, or make metal hooks.

    Welding professor Galvery offers a guide for anyone wishing to learn how to weld. The types of welding covered include oxyacetylene welding, shielded metal arc or stick welding, wire-feed and MIG (metal inert gas) welding, and flux cored arc welding. Brazing and soldering are also addressed, as they often complement welding and are commonly used by nonprofessionals. Galvery provides basic information about how each process and technique works, along with comparisons and pro-con lists that help the reader determine the most suitable technique. Projects are arranged to provide a learning process for the reader. Most of the projects focus on mending existing equipment, though a few construct new items from scratch. From repairing the broken weak point of a metal rake to strengthening rusted-out sheet metal to adding parts for a more useful tractor bucket, the projects focus mostly on farm-related equipment, but the methods included likely translate to beginning welding projects in other settings. Safety information is emphasized throughout, and easy-to-understand diagrams illustrate the equipment and processes. Includes an extensive glossary. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
