It's decent advice but it's very much an overview not a step by step how-to, it's worth reading as what it is but it will not teach you to weld, no book can do that.

Let me sum this book up for you: Make sure your pieces fit together tightly, make sure they are super clean, shop local if you can, buy brand names, go to tent sales, buy high end equipment if you can or used if you can't afford new, TIG welding is the best option, get a TIG welder that supports square wave and lots of adjustability made by a major brand name, practice on scrap, and ask lots of questions at your local welding supply dealer.

There are lots of pictures of good aircraft welds but not a whole lot of detail on doing them, very few diagrams or charts but lots of pictures of tubes welded together by different methods.

The book assumes you already know how to weld at times and assumes you don't at others. I think the author knows full well what the book is and what he wrote and would agree it can't teach you to weld, you actually have to get a welder and some scrap metal and just try it.

Let me make the author's main point again, if you're not doing high volume production welding you should probably use a TIG welder.

I like the Motorbooks Workshop books. They are all well written, have very illustrative color photos, and are well organized. This particular book is a handy supplement to the Welder's Handbook by Finch (same author, and some of the same information). While "Performance Welding" covers some more detail about the function and technique of many welding methods, the "Welder's Handbook" has a few projects thrown in with plans.

From this particular book I've learned a few tricks about jigging, and discovered a few things I didn't know. I made a few things out of sheet metal from duct work that one might find at the home hardware super duper mart. I tacked together a box made of this stuff which is all galvanized. A few days later I'm flipping through the book and learned that welding galvanized metal is bad - the ionized zinc forms a fume cloud of little nanoparticles that one shouldn't breathe. Extended contact leads to poisoning. Whoops. But I also learned that with proper ventillation, it's okay to weld galvanized metals but I should definitely be more careful.

One thing I've learned a lot about, which I only vaguely knew until now, is what to look for in a TIG welder. I learned with MIG and continue to use MIG, but the control of a TIG welder would help dramatically. The extensive discussion of TIG, including TIG methods for stainless, aluminum, and magnesium, is very helpful.

Also, I am now more interested in the other techniques that I passed by on my learning curve. For one, gas welding seems to have benefits that I overlooked. And I've also learned that much of the work I do could easily be accomplished by good ol' arc welding with better affordability.

If you are a beginning to intermediate welder, you will probably find this book useful.

Introductory and also a handy reference. However, studying a text is of little help in learning the skill of manual welding....
any type of manual electric welding. Little help with Oxy-acetylene weld and forge-welding not mentioned.

I got this book for my husband who recently purchased a tig welder and needed a crash course in the basics of welding metals like aluminum and stainless steel. He really likes the book and found quite a bit of useful information. Some of the safety info was very much appreciated and it is easy to read. Good book for anyone needing a little direction.

Motorbooks Workshop creates some really excellent books for the beginner and the advanced alike. I am a trained auto technician and I pick up as many of the motorbooks' as I can to brush up on the basics. This book on welding is no different. However, the author does reference different types of welding on aircrafts throughout the book. With a picture of a race car on the front cover, you would expect a little more material on strictly race cars. With that being said, great read, I recommend it.

Another good book on welding.
You can't get enough information.
I recommend a video along with this book and "LOTS OF PRACTICE."

This book has helped me get my welding a lot cleaner and with a lot more strength.
Strongly recommend this series.
Reading this book makes the skill enjoyable.
