Learning to Weld Via CD-ROMWhile welding can be an art form in its most advanced state, it's also one of the most useful skills a shade tree mechanic can develop. Not only does it offer unending possibilities in what you can design for your own 4x4, it's also a respected skill that could land you a good paying job in the automotive industry or other field of interest. And now, thanks to the Miller Electric Company, it's easier to learn than ever.
Produced in conjunction with Hobart Institute of Welding Technology, the Miller Training Systems series of educational interactive CD-ROMs allow the beginning welder to master his or her skills at their own pace. The Introduction To Welding CD is chock full of very useful information, such as welding history, welding processes, components, and applications, and an overview of MIG, TIG, stick, and Plasma styles of welding.
Once you've gained some understanding of the basic elements of welding, you can move on to the specific welding type CDs: MIG Fundamentals and TIG Fundamentals. Both offer step-by-step tutorials touching on all of the welding basics, including a detailed description of the components and controls of each style welding unit, wire and gas selection, and a glossary of terms and exercises to guide you along the path to welding proficiency.
