« on: August 02, 2008, 07:30:14 AM »
Part of the $25.00 Miller Student training package

Gas Metal Arc Welding
by Miller Electric Training Dept
Trade Paperback
Revised 1994

Another of their well prepared,books filled with information, B&W photos, carts and multi shaded line line drawings so you can tell the parts and pieces in the explanations.
142 pages packed with more than the average home shop guy will probably need.

It does cover it all and if it isn't in here ypou probably aren't going to need it!
"The internet just a figment, of my imagination!' 
 There are only 3 things I can't do!"
Raise the Dead!
        Walk on water!
                 Fix a broken heart!
and I'm working on the first two!
