Hello all. I am considering purchasing a welder for home use. Since its a Big expense for me, I decided to get a book on Welding first. The Author gives A lot of useful information. Even on Plasma Cutters. Some of the things I already knew from working as an Auto tech. Not having taken a class on Welding, I learned more from this book than in the shop.
