I recently bought this Arc Welding DVD along with Arc Welding 1, Mig Welding (GMAW), and Gas Welding.
Most welding videos I have seen in this price range have left me hanging.
Usually the arc shots are just a big starburst of light and are pretty useless.
Not so on these videos. Honestly, I was blown away at the value I got from these 25 dollar welding DVD's.
No BS here.
I can recommend every one of Steve's Welding Videos without hesitation.
They are worth every penny and then some.
I use Hobart training welding videos routinely in classes that I teach and they are close to a thousand dollars for each process. And they are worth it.
I was just not expecting to get the same quality from 25 dollar welding videos. If fact, in a lot of ways Steves Welding videos are BETTER.
Steve Bleiles Welding videos move along a a fast pace. I like that. if you miss something, that's what the rewind button is for right?
Here is a rundown on what Steve covers in the Arc Welding 2 DVD:
*Amperage---amperage ranges for different rods 6010 / 6011, 6013, 7018
*Rod angle—effects rod angle has on penetration and weld buildup
*Travel speed---effects travel speed has on heat buildup and defects
*Arc gap---effects of too much or not enough arc gap
*Basic metallurgy and Grain growth from heat input… Don’t worry, Steve only camps out on this for a minute...and then gets right back to good welding tips.
*Distortion and how to limit it.
*Metal prep and fabrication pointers
*Tips and techniques for running beads with 6010 / 6011, 6013, 7018
*Groove weld tests along with corner , butt, lap, and Tee joints
*Open butt root passes with 6010
*Keyhole root pass uphill
*a Great tip for Repairing holes in root pass
