    Yep pretty much,
    If you want arc welding, both lincoln and Miller haver great technical books.
    If you want OA get a copy of "the oxyscetylene handbook" by Linde (now esab).

    Unfortunately as we all know, its not always the right information thats spread, its whats sold the most. And unfortunately this series of books is everywhere! About the only place you dont see them is in school...or an engineers desk...hmmmm.

    I can second that. I have a few of theirs. All excellent.

    There was a thread on the hobart forum not too long ago where
    people listed books, reviews, etc. Here's a link to it

    Default Thanks...

    Thenks everyone. You all have been a huge help. I will be working on creating a very broad library now. I love welding. When I was building eighteen wheeler trailers, I was the happiest I have ever been in a job. I hated to see that job fold up. I really have no formal training other than on the job, and piddling around with home projects. I guess it's true, when you have a love for something, you persue it with everything you have. I have only had my bobcat for about a month, and have nearly burned 3/4 of a tank of fuel, and a good many rods. Built three fence corners and have been working on my truck bed set up some. I guess a lot of my fuel consumption has been the prep and fit work. I can honestly say that I am truly happy with what I have done. I will have to try and get some pics together to show some of my work off. Some upcoming projects include refabbing a bumper I built in 2003 for my 4x4, a mariad of cookers, and finishing out the truck bed. Also going to try to start the lay out on a feed and tack room and a shelter off of my shop. Thanks again everyone.

    As an all purpose reference book I kinda like the "Prodecure Handbook Of Arc Welding" from Lincoln, but then I am ancient and so is some of the material. I believe it would be value added for just getting started. However, the Miller books I have seen are very good.
