Welding and Metal Fabrication by Larry Jeffus

Welding and Metal Fabrication is a superb handbook for welders. It is authored by Larry Jeffus. The book explains all about developing skills to become a highly paid versatile welder. Further, it reveals making the learning process to weld a rewarding and interesting. Welders can improve both the welding and fabrication skills together.

The author says, don’t be critical of your initial welding skills. They will improve as you advance in your welding career. And the book is helpful in this journey of your career. All the chapters divided into four major categories. They are namely general and background; theory and application; fabrication and welding; supplemental and technical. All the aspects of metal fabrication and welding are told in great lengths. Besides this, all the chapters include a variety of questions for an in-depth and comprehensive review of the very topic.

  1. I need to get some metal parts welded together for a construction project that I’m working on, but I’m not sure how to go about it. It makes sense that I would want to get a professional to handle it for me. That seems like a great way to ensure that it gets done right.

    1. Hi Braden Bills
      Yeah if you are not sure about the process, better consult an experienced welder or consult an agency for welder in case planning to hire. Because before starting welding, we need to set so many parameters according to the properties of the metals.

      They may be types of electrodes, current types (DC/AC), and manufacturers’ instructions attached with the equipment. The following link may help to grasp knowledge on various welding processes along with different parameters. https://www.weldinginfo.org/welding-types/
