Although National Welding Month came to a close at the end of April, we’re squeezing in a few more resources to help spread the word about this awesome craft. Whether you’re looking for a new career or an engaging hobby, welding offers a path of continually learning and the satisfaction of creating your own original works.
To help you explore this field we’ve been collecting resources in education and professional associations. This week we’ve also discovered a handy web site for newbies, and the more experienced, at WeldGuru.com. On this site we found useful descriptions of various processes such as brazing, cutting, and soldering. As well as descriptions of the various welding methods and tips for each of these methods.
Please note that this is a commercial web site with some stuff to sell, which is AOK, but there is also a lot of free information as well. Free resources on this site include video tutorials, definitions of various methods, and trouble-shooting guides that can all help to further your practice. Also, don’t miss the WeldGuru safety tips, especially if you are a beginner and experimenting on your own. We always recommend getting in-person instruction from a qualified teacher as the best way to get your hands on welding equipment to start off safe! This stuff does get hot!
