How To Weld and Cut Steel
PREFACEIn the preparation of this work, theobject has been to cover not onlytheseveral processes of welding, butalso those other processes which aresoclosely allied in method and resultsas to make them a part of the wholesubject of joining metal to metalwith the aid of heat.The workman who wishes to handle histrade from start to finish findsthat
it is necessary to become familiarwith certain other operations whichprecede or follow the actual joiningof the metal parts, the purpose ofthese operations being to add orretain certain desirable qualitiesin thematerials being handled. For thisreason the following subjects havebeenincluded: Annealing, tempering,hardening, heat treatment and therestoration of steel.In order that the user mayunderstand the underlying principlesand thematerials employed in this work,much practical information is givenon theuses and characteristics of thevarious metals; on the production,handlingand use of the gases and othermaterials which are a part of theequipment;and on the tools and accessories forthe production and handling of thesematerials.An examination will show that thegreatest usefulness of this booklies inthe fact that all necessaryinformation and data has beenincluded in onevolume, making it possible for theworkman to use one source forsecuring aknowledge of both principle andpractice, preparation and finishingof thework, and both large and smallrepair work as well as manufacturingmethodsused in metal working.An effort has been made to eliminateall matter which is not of directusefulness in practical work, whileincluding all that those engaged inthis trade find necessary. To thisend, the descriptions have beenlimitedto those methods and accessorieswhich are found in actual use today.For
the same reason, the work includesthe application of the rules laiddownby the insurance underwriters whichgovern this work as well asinstructions for the proper care andhandling of the generators, torchesand materials found in the shop.Special attention has been given todefinite directions for handling thedifferent metals and alloys whichmust be handled. The instructionshavebeen arranged to form rules whichare placed in the order of their useduring the work described and thework has been subdivided in such awaythat it will be found possible tosecure information on any one pointdesired without the necessity ofspending time in other fields.The facts which the expert welderand metalworker finds it mostnecessaryto have readily available have beensecured, and prepared especially forthis work, and those of most generaluse have been combined with thechapter on welding practice to whichthey apply.The size of this volume has beenkept as small as possible, but anexamination of the alphabeticalindex will show that the range ofsubjectsand details covered is complete inall respects. This has beenaccomplishedthrough careful classification ofthe contents and the elimination ofallrepetition and all theoretical,historical and similar matter thatis notabsolutely necessary.Free use has been made of theinformation given by thosemanufacturers whoare recognized as the leaders intheir respective fields, thusinsuring
