Miller Offers New Ron Covell “MIG Welding Made Easy” DVD

APPLETON, Wis., March 10, 2008—Now available from Miller Electric Mfg. Co. is Ron Covell’s “MIG Welding Made Easy” DVD, which is designed to teach entry-level hobbyists MIG welding skills and help others improve their skills and techniques. In this easy-to-follow program, recognized metalworking expert, Ron Covell, covers the basic processes used for successful MIG welding; proper machine setup, joint preparation, wire selection, gun angles, travel speed and what to check when things go wrong. More information on the 70-min. video is available at:

“We’ve had a lot of requests from home hobbyists looking for a hands-on video for learning or improving their skills for MIG Welding,” states Doug DiVenere, divisional director of marketing, Miller Electric Mfg. Co. “We’re excited about the opportunity to partner with Ron Covell, who’s a master in demonstrating how easy welding can be once you know the basics.”

Covell uses real-world examples, such as a patch-panel repair, to show correct MIG welding technique. “I demonstrate several practical applications that show exactly what happens at the weld when you change any of the parameters,” states Ron Covell, owner, Covell Creative Metalworking. “These examples demystify the MIG welding process, allowing beginners to get up and running with as few mistakes as possible.”

Rounding out the video is a detailed look at plasma cutting for the home hobbyist. Safety, torch angles and technique are all covered as Covell explains the benefits of using a plasma cutter compared to other methods.
