Description


Welding is an art and skill that's essential for automotive fabrication, repair, and vehicle upgrades. It is also an important skill for countless household projects and industries. Some books show basic welding techniques with steel and cast iron. But this isn't your run-of-the-mill introductory welding book.

In this revised edition of the previous title, Advanced Automotive Welding, Jerry Uttrachi, past president of the American Welding Society, shows you how to perform basic welding procedures with steel and cast iron. He also reveals advanced welding techniques and the use of aluminum, titanium, magnesium, stainless steel, and other specialty materials. Projects and techniques focus on automotive applications but they can also be used for welding a bicycle frame, a steel grill, and other everyday fixes.

TIG, oxyacetylene, arc, and wire-feed welding processes are detailed, with special coverage on stick and MIG processes. Welding butt and V-joints is explained as well as welding more complex joints, including J- and U-joints. Step-by-step instruction gives you the necessary information to tackle and complete almost any welding job. Popular automotive projects, such as welding an electric fuel pump into an aluminum tank, repairing chrome-moly suspension arms, and welding in floorpans are thoroughly covered. And when it comes to repairing household items, specific projects such as repairing and modifying the steel tubing on an exercise machine, repairing the frame for a decorative bench, and more are covered.

Whether you're new to welding, a veteran weldor working with special materials, or involved in a special project, you will find indispensible information within the pages of this book.
This book is a 2015 International Automotive Media Competition (IAMC) Silver Medal Winner.
