TIG, Oxyacetylene, Arc, and Wire-Feed welding processes are detailed, with special coverage on Stick and MIG processes. Welding butt and V-joints is explained as well as welding more complex joints, including J- and U-joints. Step-by-step instruction gives you the necessary information to tackle and complete almost any welding job. Popular automotive projects, such as welding an electric fuel pump into an aluminum tank, repairing chrome-moly suspension arms, and welding in floorpans are thoroughly covered. And when it comes to repairing household items, specific projects such as repairing and modifying the steel tubing on an exercise machine, repairing the frame for a decorative bench, and more are covered.

Whether you're new to welding, a veteran weldor working with special materials, or involved in a special project, you will find indispensible information within the pages of this book.
