Learn to weld while balancing all of farming’s unique variables - including how to safely work in windy or rainy conditions and how to identify, prepare, and use a variety of metals, new or old. Detailed instructions and full-color photos show the four basic kinds of welding - MIG, TIG, arc, and oxyacetylene - plus brazing and soldering; and author William Galvery explains when to use each. This comprehensive guide then presents 15 practical repair and fabrication projects and techniques applicable around the farm or ranch, including making a pig roaster portable, attaching flat-back hooks, and repairing a garden rake.
This introductory photographic guide to basic welding techniques is specially focused for farmers, ranchers, and homesteaders and includes step-by-step instructions for common repairs and fabrications.
