Measuring and Marking Metals is a unique handbook on explaining the details of welding measurements especially for model engineers and home machinist. Ivan Law has provided the book. And it is a workshop practice series no.06. The author explains a wide use of measurements in the welding shops while making and producing any of the parts. The manual reveals how to mark out and use measuring equipment. Besides this, it also tells the essential skills needed to use the marking and measuring instruments.
In the beginning, the book emphasizes more of workshop measurements than that of industry ones. The author further reveals the ‘ordinary rule’ and different types and styles as per industry. Therefore, the knowledge of welding measurements, rules, and calipers, micrometers, gauges, dial gauges, angular measurements, marking-out tools, casting and forging marking tools, and sheet component markings are necessary.
The following is all about the contents of the welding handbook.
