"I personally selected this book for
the live steam and diesel hobbyists. I was looking for one book that can
do it all. With over 540 pages chock full of explanations and diagrams, it does
it all. It's a complete study of the art of welding from the "total basic"
to "master craftsman" level. Learn wire feed welding, "stick" welding, gas
welding, brazing and much much more."
