Elementary TIG Welding Skills.
Pierson, John E., III
The text was prepared to help deaf students develop the skills needed by an employed welder. It uses simplified language and illustrations to present concepts which should be reinforced by practical experience with welding skills. Each of the 12 lessons contains: (1) an information section with many illustrations which presents a concept or procedure in step-wise detail, (2) an outlined review of the material presented, and (3) a list of objective questions to check comprehension of the lesson. The lessons cover the following topics: preparing to be a safe welder, using electricity in welding, identifying TIG welding equipment, selecting tungsten electrodes, using inert gas, action of the arc, using the torch in the flat position, establishing the arc, making a butt weld, making a fillet weld, welding aluminum, and welding stainless steel.
