    Lightbulb Looking for feedback: Resources available on Millerwelds.com

    I have a 2-part question. Any feedback is much appreciated!

    I'm looking at redoing our entire education area, and I'd like to know if it currently satisfies your needs, or if there's a wish list out there? http://www.millerwelds.com/resources/

    Just thought I'd ask some experts what the most popular questions/FAQ are regarding welding? I'm redoing our tech tips within our resources area (MIG, TIG, Stick, Plasma) and we want to hit the top items that would be most helpful to welders when considering what kinds of topics to offer.

    Thanks much!!!

    IIRC, the GTAW book is one of the few that is also online (not counting the small pamphlets.) Put some more of the bigger texts on there.

    Default Tig!

    I see there's been a lot of requests for TIG. I posted the same question on the Mortorsports board, and they've come back with lots of TIG, but also a resounding request for more instructional video and pictures. Short clips on individual topics, not whole classes or anything..

    I'm not so sure about the O/A info, since I don't think Miller sells that type of equipment, (and they DO sell plasma) but I will definately bring it up for consideration. After all, some people might use both!

    I also had some requests for a chart or guide for gasses and filler metals. I have to compare the requests against what we have already, but if we do already have them and people aren't finding them, that's a concern as well.

    All ideas are welcome!

    Most of us on here have answered questions for the newby's and hobbyists about the best type of material to use for specific projects. Maybe a run down of types of metals and the best suitable uses for them. Kinda like a metal 101, Not to scientific either, just the basics, as I know all the data can be a little confusing at times. After all you can't use a welder with out the materials, and it would be much safer if the people knew what the proper materials are for the application. Dave

    Default pictures

    One thing I would like to see added to the education area is pictures. Particularly photos of poor quality welds with an explanation of why it is a poor weld, what caused it, and how to correct the problem. The more the better, because I keep finding ways to make ugly welds.
