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


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
