    Default Modern Welding Practice

    Make sure you get the latest issue

    Modern Welding Practice
    by: Althouse,Turnquist,Bowditch,Bowditch et all
    Goodheart-Willcox Publishers
    copyright©1951,1958,1967,70,76,80,84 plus recent editions
    ISBN#0-87006-433-9



    Well what can one say about the book that started it all in welding in high school. The green version, back when the choice was no choice about what book to use as a text.
    Its covered more than we wanted to know at the time. As all we cared about was making sparks and making cool stuff.
    It has been up graded when the tech changes enough for welding to become necessary. There is a current newer edition out there now, than either one shown.
    The latest versions have better B&W pictures and more of them, more drawings in two colors better to highlight the process they are describing.
    This area of the bookdom is open to interpretation, as everybody seems to favor the one they learned on so to speak.
    They all cover the welding field from soup to nuts. with charts and stuff that you might need or not.
    The local library probably have a number of them on their shelfs.
    You can check them out to see which style you like. Before ordering one as they aren't big sellers at your local book sellers.

    If you are looking for a general cover it all books on welding and cutting.These are the ones

    Default Gas Tungsten Arc Welding handbook

    Gas Tungsten Arc Welding handbook
    by William H Minnick
    Goodheart-Willcox co.
    copyright©1985,1992,1996,2000,2006
    ISBN#13-978-1-59070-581-0
    hard cover
    You can get this one from our sponsors bookstore in the magazine or on the phone.



    After much looking around at stand alone and combination welding instruction books. I settled on this one. As it only covered the GTAW, or TIG as it once was called.
    Looking for something that had all the info on the subject, so I can have the knowledge to make a decision on buying a machine to do the welding I could possibly do in the near term. Along with the pointers from the people here. I figured that it would be a walk in the park!
    Well It does cover just about everything one could want or need in a book.

    * The process
    * Operation and safety
    * Equipment
    * Auxiliary equipment and systems
    * Shielding gases and regulators
    * Filler materials
    * Welding joints and types
    * Tooling and equipment setup
    * Manual welding techniques
    * Covering aluminum,magnesium,copper and copper alloys,steel and steel alloys, stainless steel,nickel,nickel alloys,titanium, pipe and dissimilar metals


    Then moving on to semiauto and automatic welding, quality control/inspection,welding repair. Qualification and Certification estimating costs and a good reference section.
    Since it is a text book for training purposes. It is set up to cover the subject matter in the chapter heading and only that. You don't have to hunt thru a large chapter if you want some bit of info.
    It also means that if you have no interest in some subject matter. Such as the titanium welding in a bubble with an inert atmosphere you can skip that chapter or section of the chapter with out wondering if you have missed something else.

    I will say that this book is up there with the ones that everyone should have on their reference shelf.

    Default How to build a Radial Arm Flame Cutter

    How to build a Radial Arm Flame Cutter
    by Richard B Walker
    Booklet
    ISBN#0-9615182-0-0
    copyright©1985



    First off this came as a package deal with a copy of the latest slim volumes from the expo. This may be a problem finding. As it is a self published booklet/plans to build this tool.
    Being done in 1985,and all. The author was located in Irvine California, were he had a shop. He may be known to some on this forum.

    * Introduction
    * Plans
    * Track Assembly
    * Carriage
    * Torch Clamp
    * Elevation Shaft Swivel Clamp
    * Mast and Arm
    * Mast Mounting Base
    * Setup and Operation


    20 pages of instructions, drawings and photos. Covers building it,setting it up and using it booth for straight cuts and radial cuts.
    Today it is sort of pushed to the back with plasma cutters but was an interesting concept and very clean and simple of design and build . Not to mention the operation.

    http://www.lapidaryjournal.com/
    they sell them at the web site.This is silver solder or silver brazing



    slim 50 page booklet, That is filled with maybe more than any one wants to know about soldering! But needs to know if you are doing metals either as a jewelery or object artist in metal.
    Filled with color photos of the bits and bobs of soldering. It is one of those little booklet types that a lot of people would dismiss as not worth a further look.

    * Solder
    * Flux
    * Torches
    * Fit and Cleanliness
    * Joints and Placement
    * Don't move keeping pieces in place
    * Basic tools
    * Redirecting heat
    * Fire scale
    * Pickle

    Covering all the little things that have come, in the magazine over the years. In the tips and tricks and general questions along with the accumulative wisdom of the editorial staff.
    From the why's of doing things, to how's and with what's. From the Properties of fuel gases,the different type of torches used either dual or single gas. To the types of anti flux and Heat sink materials and what they do and don't.
    All in all the PH d course in metals arts soldering.
    Check out their website they have a very good section on education information in the jewelry arts processes and techniques.*

    Default The Pipe Fitter's and Pipe Welder's Handbook

    The Pipe Fitter's and Pipe Welder's Handbook
    by Thomas W Frankland
    Glencoe Plublishing
    copyright©1984
    ISBN# 0-02802500-8
    Just a side note to JC Hannum, Don't bother looking for your copy you sold it to me




    Another pocket sized format just under 4"x6" it is amazing what they can pack into such a small space.
    Divide into 4 sections:

    Basic Trade Mathematics

    Starting with the math, and making as painless as possible.
    Triangles and trigonometry,the set,run and travel
    Along with all manner of formula for laying out pipe bends
    from simple to wrinkle bends and everything in between.
    Linear expansion of pipe,Capacities of tanks,of all shapes.
    Methods of layout for angles,flanges squares,elliptical
    holes in sheet metal.

    Pipe Fitting Calculations

    Calculating offsets,rolling offsets, offsets and around
    obstructions of all types. A truly bewildering array of
    offsets.

    Pipe Welding Layout

    General layout, and turns to the laying out of the cut lines
    for all manner of fittings and runs. Tees, reducing tees,
    true Y's, blanking off pipe with orange peel or bull plugs.
    To a number of methods for laying out angle iron brackets
    from one continuous length of steel.

    Reference Tables

    Are filled with the dimensional information on all kinds of
    pipe and fitting materials.Along with a few of the most
    useful tables for a pipe fitter

    If you do the pipe hand railings, this would be a bonus for you for the double offsets, and all the other moves in pipe that have you scratching your head. And saying How do I do that.

    Default Welding Sliding Calculators

    More from the Miller student package
    Welding Sliding Calculators
    There is the SMAW
    Stick Amperage Calculator which will tell you, the amperage range for the rod,thickness of metal,(3/32"to 1/4" or in mm),usage,polarity,position,penetration,rod type, AC/DC.
    It covers 6010/6011,6013,7014,7018,7024,Ni-Cl and 308L rods
    common steels,Cast iron and Stainless steel. This is strictly for the common types and not the exotics.

    The back of it has conditions that affect weld bead shape. And striking the arc with drawings. On the back of the slider there are B&W pictures of good and bad weld beads, with short one line explanations.



    The next one is the GMAW
    MIG calculator, which will tell you for material thickness 3/32" to 5/8". For flux cored,automated submerged arc,on one side.Wire size,amperage,voltage, travel speed-IPM,wire feed-IPM(automated submerged arc) With the deposition rate of solid steel wire.(set the wire size at wire speed and it gives the rate in pounds/hour) Wire diameter,current range,wire feed speed IPM, voltage for both Co2 and C-25(flux cored)
    On the other side,MIG welding amps/volts/gas,for material type(steel,stainless and aluminum) in thickness(22gauge to 1/2"). And wire feed speed-IPM from .030",.035",.040"steel. .035"(Stainless), .035",3/64",1/16" (4043) Aluminum



    The final one in the set of 3 is the GTAW Calculator
    TIG calculator,one one side it gives information on electrodes,(common) and the sharpening of same.with drawings, it also has drawing of the common types of welds keyed to numbers on the slider chart.
    It has info for mild steel,stainless,deoxidized copper,on one side. And aluminum,magnesium,and titanium on the other.
    it covers from 1/16"--1/2" AND .040 3/4"(Magnesium).
    It will give the Tungsten electrode size,cup orifice diameter,Filler rod, type(dcen/dcep/ac),Current for flat welding(with instruction on how to adjust for out of position), gas type, flow rate cfh,psi,and the speed IPM. Along with any remarks for multiple passes, per heat etc.

    For the old hand or daily working welder they may seem of no use. But to the weekend warrior/home shop welder they can be a time saver for the money they cost either alone or in the student package.

    They are made out of heavy weight plastic coated cardboard, which makes cleaning the easier. And they come with a handy plastic carrying case.
