Farm and Workshop Welding
I stopped at Menards on my way to school the other day - no real surprise there, I guess - and on my way to the back of the store to get some spackling compound I stopped to check out the books. I came across Farm and Workshop Welding by Andrew Pearce. This is a really good book. It covers just about everything a guy would want to know for welding around a farm or workshop. It covers cutting: flame, plasma and arc gouging. Welding: gas, stick, MIG, TIG, plastic welding. It goes into a little of the specialty stuff like welding cast iron and TIG brazing. It's a softcover, shiny pages thing that is well worth the money. I found it on Amazon and used copies were going for $31.00 and up. Menards had it brand new for a little more than $22.00.
If you're looking for a good all around welding book geared to the hands-on user, look no further. Shop Teacher Bob gives it a big thumbs up.
