Farm and Workshop Welding: Everything You Need to Know to Weld, Cut, and Shape Metal Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Almost anyone can weld, cut or shape metal. That’s the starting point for this supremely practical book which, through tips, suggestions and fault-finding, helps the beginner to improve and the intermediate operator to broaden technique. Beyond welding metals and plastics, advice extends into the wider workshop with chapters on drills, cutting threads, and basic blacksmithing.

Andrew Pearce lays out pitfalls and common mistakes section by section, and then helps the reader to avoid or correct them. Useful if you’re stumped by a problem!

About the Author

Andrew Pearce grew up in Kent, England with motorcycles, cars and farm machinery. After study at the University of Nottingham's School of Agriculture, he worked for several years on a farm in Sussex. During this time, he started writing, first for Power Farming and later for Farmer's Weekly. A former instructor of welding and other practical skills, he currently divides his time between writing and the farm workshop.
