It was like 15 bucks at the school bookstore if we are talking about the little blue book.

That was the Lincoln "Metals and how to weld them" book that I got at the book store, also a good reference book.

@Jonathan,
I'm sure, it's right under the "Welding Essentials" book on the bathroom vanity.

Hey, Len,

Take a picture of that! I'll see if that photo can be made a "header" for this forum! As a close-up, that stack of books would make a great introduction to "the library".

@Steve,
I'm at work right now and you wouldn't want a picture of the stack of books (magazines) in the bathroom here for a family freindly forum, if you know what I mean. :D I can take a picture when I get home if I remember. I have about three more welding books that I have loaned out to a younger guy at work who wants to learn to weld.

I 've been watching Jody's videos for a while but just joined the forum yesterday.... am I yakking too much here too soon?

For references, I encourage those starting out to consider using qualified welding procedures and the product catalogs of suppliers like ESAB and Lincoln. These give specifics on what process to use, filler metal and/or electrode, amperage settings, gas flow and gas composition, joint preparation, base metal types and thicknesses, pre/post heat and interpass temps, like or dissimilar metals, etc. for pipe, plate, sheet, harfacing, casting repairs, buttering..... you guys know.

The idea is, technique and skill are not the only things we need to make a quality product. When the variables are set correctly, producing quality welds does not depend on talent alone.

For jobs that must be done right, I start by finding the best procedure from a qualified source. That might be looking up a hardfacing electrode within a certain hardness range and base metal type from the Lincoln products catalog. Or, calling my guy at AirGas to recommend Ni99 or Ni55 for a repair. When the inputs are on your side, you can focus on learning the techniques with far less frustration and disappointment.

Wishing everyone success-
