Welding Projects Books for Hobby Welders

weld banner

A good welding projects books is tricky to find. There are several welding project books out there that are not as helpful as they claim. First off, when I look for welding information, the first place I look is to manufacturers. Manufacturer’s websites are a reliable source of welding information. They know what they are talking about. When you go to other places, be careful about what you buy. While I was searching for welding project books online I found reading the customer comments and reviews on Amazon.com to be helpful. Don’t forget that Bakers sells a variety of high-quality welding books, guides, and references—published by the manufacturers themselves.
