A practical, visual handbook for welding in farm, home, blacksmith, auto, or school workshops. Its 10 sections describe all the major types of welds before progressing into trickier methods. With this comprehensive guide, you’ll understand everything you need to know, from arc, TIG, MIG, and gas welding to plasma cutting, soldering, welding plastics, and more. Filled with helpful visuals and photography, detailed explanations, expert suggestions, and step-by-step directions, this go-to guide to welding also covers common pitfalls and mistakes, and how to avoid or correct them. 

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.
