Synopsis

GET STARTED WITH METAL INERT GAS (MIG) WELDING!



A practical guide with step-by-step instructions and hands-on projects for newcomers to metalwork and MIG welding



The TAB Guide to DIY Welding shows you how to get started with MIG welding and metalworking. Inside, you'll find illustrated step-by-step instructions for

making useful objects for around the home, as well as fun artistic projects. This easy-to-follow book takes you through setting up a metalworking studio, finding local resources for materials, and the safe operation of metal studio tools.



Everything you need to know about MIG welding is here in one handy resource.



You'll learn what steel is made of and the principles behind electrical welding. Then you'll learn how to acquire new steel, how to interface with steel suppliers,
