And a few Clips from previous videos with lots of arc shots of Tig, Mig, and Stick?
I am guessing that if you are reading this, at least one of the next few statements describes you.
"I learn by getting my hands dirty."
"Just show me how and then let me try it."
"I have slight issues with authority and dont like a lot of rules."
(All three are true about me)
Another thing I am guessing about you is that you want to improve your skills.
Otherwise , you would not even be here reading this?
Well, you are in the right place because I am all about improving welding skills....Including my own.
That is one of the things I like about welding is that there is always something new to learn.....Always.
...and Videos are a very valuable tool for learning...I even learn from watching my own videos because while I am editing a video, I usually see something I didnt even notice while welding and shooting the video.
I miss a few things when I have my arms wrapped around a camera, but when I watch later, I see new details...and its instructive for me too.
One thing I have learned after teaching people to weld for 20 years is...
We Welders are a different breed.
We typically learn by watching and by doing. Not just by reading.
In fact, you cannot learn to weld by just reading.
You have to get in there and do it.
And when it comes to welding, the best learning often happens just by looking over someones shoulder and then trying it yourself. Especially when the someone showing you is explaining things to you in plain talk.
Video often works even better than looking over someones shoulder.
Because with a Welding DVD, you can replay key scenes as many times as you want.
when I was in welding school, I was lucky to get one or two hands on demonstrations per week. The instructors were spread pretty thin back then and still are today.
I would have loved having a video to watch over and over to get me past those sticking points.
What is the one thing that makes all the difference in a good welding video?
Is it awesome graphics? ripple dissolve transitions between scenes? A deep radio voice on the narration?
Not for me.
I have purchased several welding DVD's for myself and none of that stuff ever impressed me.
How about clear shots of the welding puddle and arc along with plain talk explaining what is going on?
Thats what makes for a good welding video.
If I can see a good arc shot along with an explanation and some basic machine settings, thats all I need.
I talked with a welding instructor recently who ordered several hundred dollars worth of welding training videos from an educational website.
The videos were horrible...He was so disappointed when he first watched them because of the college professors monotone narration and lousy arc shots. His students hated them too so he put them in a drawer.
You wont have that problem with this Welding DVD.
I am no College Professor...No PhD here
I am a welder.
I dont use fancy terms, and I hate overly complicated explanations of anything.
But here is what you can expect in this Welding DVD set...
Over 6 hours of welding videos showing all kinds of different types of welding tasks that were done in a real job shop over a 12 month period.
Arc shots that are instructive and explained by a regular guy.
a mix of carbon steel, stainless, and aluminum welding shots.
It took 4 DVD discs to fit all these videos.
So whats on these 4 Discs?
scroll down and check it all out.
Disc 1 - TIG: Aluminum & Certification Tests
Disc 2 - TIG: Steel, Stainless, Titanium
Disc 3 - Stick& MIG
Disc 4 - Projects
