Basic Electricity
by G K Willecke
Miller Electric
soft cover book
copyright ©1954


Well it is just what it says it is only thing they add in side is that it is aimed or written for arc weldors. On the electrical fundamentals, Just shy of 100 pages.
It covers in 17 chapters most everything a person working with welding equipment needs to know in operation and the why.

    * Fundamental concepts
    * Definitions
    * Current flow
    * Facts & figures
    * Magnetic fields
    * Faraday's contributions
    * Induction
    * Transformers
    * current voltage lag
    * Cosine phase angle
    * Theory and practice
    * Joules and watts
    * DC
    * How much measuring current
    * Electron's at rest
    * When trouble strikes
    * Hieroglyphics electrical symbols

The director of electrical research at Miller at the time used the method of writing this book with some humor, and a lot analogies.
Including the titles so they may not make sense when looking at the contents. I have changed some of the titles of the chapters to reflect the contents of same.
It still covers all the basics of welding machine electrical.

Solid State Fundamentals
by Miller
soft cover booklet


Another of the basic volumes so you can understand solid state operation and components. if nothing else than for trouble shooting a unit before hauling it off to the shop.

    * Basic Electricity
    * Solid State Components
    * How a Solid State welding Power Source Works
    * Why use solid State
    * Welding Terms Glossary and Explanation of Electrical Parts

And Tim Taylor of tool time's favorite MORE POWER!
Paralleling Arc Welding Power Sources
by Miller
soft cover booklet
copyright ©2005


When the job requires a higher amperage than is available from one unit you can hook up multiple units. Two or more as long as they are electrically similar. the current goes up but the voltage remains the same.

    * Paralleling
    * Recommended Equipment
    * Selecting cables sizes
    * A Nomogram for Computing weld cable size
    * drawings of hook ups
    * Other Equipment information what not to parallel

All have the safety information, line drawings when needed.
