About the Author

I believe that learning to weld with just written instruction would severely handicap persons efforts, but through a combination of these two books and the large amount of video instruction now available online, a beginner can make a very good start if there are no personal instruction available to them.
The one caveat is that, along with How To Weld, both books try to put in so much information on different techniques that skip some areas. For instance, there is no mention of aluminum wire feed welding with a spool gun. The only mention of aluminum welding is in the TIG section.
If you are looking for introductory books on welding, you won't go wrong with this one.
