All these guys are expert…


Very practical stuff about homestead-oriented metal fabrication processes. What’s good is that the guy is going to add more vids in this series:

This guy, too, is a trained and experienced welder. For very far-ranging and detailed how-to on welding, per se, this is a very good series:

Sometimes you need to join metal of different sorts - two different kinds of steel, steel to brass, etc. Or maybe just brass to brass. Sometimes you might need to repair cast iron. And gas-torch brazing is the way to go. This vid shows and explains good stuff (first part of the vid the sound is slightly substandard, but be patient):




Please add your own favourite audio-visual sources for learning these sorts of skills.

A lot of stuff can be learned from a site called “WeldFever”.


WeldFever Youtube channel

These are the videos the guy’s put up so far:

Here's another good channel, Welding Tips & Tricks:

https://www.youtube.com/user/weldingtipsandtricks


I think I should mention that companies that manufacture welding equipment (such as Hobart, Lincoln, etc) have made instructive videos available online. Use Google or whatever search engine you like to locate these.


Note: Always learn the basic cautions and safety procedures first if you're exploring welding techniques on your own.
