In the past 10-15 years, the major welding machine manufacturers have developed small, efficient welders for home shop use. Many of these even draw from a standard 120v outlet. For the price of a low to mid-range table saw, a home welder can buy a good quality MIG welding machine. According to welding service stores, up to one third of their customers are home hobbyists. This book is aimed at the beginning to intermediate level home welder-anyone who wishes to use welding to repair or create objects around the home. An overview of welding basics, materials, metal forming, and safety will be followed by step-by-step how-to projects with full color photos. Featured projects include simple shop furniture, baker's shelf, arbor, garden gate, and garden bench. A trip to any yard and garden center will show the current popularity of metal trellises, archways, furniture, and decorative art. Many of these pieces are prohibitively expensive, yet most are fabricated using the most basic of welding and metal forming techniques and inexpensive materials. Junior colleges, community education programs, and local art councils regularly offer welding courses for the home hobbyist or artist. Until now, no book has covered welding basics and provided detailed how-to projects with easy-to-follow photographs and steps.

The progress of man really started at the time he began to use metals. Until man became the master of metals life was hard, cruel and difficult. Many people seem to think these conditions of life have not changed very much. But do you realize how much easier life is because of metals? Without metals many products we know as common necessities would be impossible, while other items would be very unsatisfactory substitutes by present-day standards. Without metals our activities would depend on our ability to use wood and stone. Stone axes and hammers may have served the caveman, but they would not meet the needs of skilled craftsmen of today. With only stone and wood available as materials, practically all our modern conveniences would be non-existent. We would not have modern means of transportation—the automobile, ocean liner, train or airplane. Likewise, we would not have modern means of communication—the radio, telephone or television. In fact, we now depend so much on metals it is difficult to think of how we could live without them.

Welding is an art and skill that's essential for automotive fabrication, repair, and vehicle upgrades, but it is also an important skill for countless household projects and industries. Some books show merely basic welding techniques with steel and cast iron. But this isn't your run-of-the-mill introductory welding book. In this revised edition of the previous title, Advanced Automotive Welding, Jerry Uttrachi, past president of the American Welding Society, does show you how to perform basic welding procedures with steel and cast iron. But he also reveals advanced welding techniques and the use of aluminum, titanium, magnesium, stainless steel, and other specialty materials. Projects and techniques in this book focus on automotive applications but can also be used for welding a bicycle frame, welding a steel grill, or repairing the frame for a garden bench. TIG, oxyacetylene, arc, and wire-feed welding processes are covered, but special coverage is provided for stick and MIG. Welding butt and V-joints is explained plus welding more complex joints, including J- and U-joints, is also shown. Step-by-step instruction and exceptional detail give you the necessary information to tackle and complete complex welding jobs. Popular automotive projects, such as welding an electric fuel pump into an aluminum tank, repairing chromemoly 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 a decorative bench, and more are covered. Rather than take a project to a shop, you can now do the job at home. Whether you're new to welding or a veteran welder looking to work with special materials or involved in a special project, you will find indispensible information within the pages of this book. Now you can confidently weld with steel, cast iron, aluminum, anodized steel, titanium, magnesium, and other specialty metals.
