WELDING AND METAL FABRICATION employs a unique hands-on, project-based learning strategy to teach welding skills effectively and keep students highly motivated. This groundbreaking new text connects each welding technique to a useful and creative take-home project, making exercises both practical and personal for students'and avoiding the tedium of traditional, repetitive welding practices. To further enhance the learning process, every welding project includes a set of prints with specifications, like those used in production fabrication shops. This full-featured approach to skill-building reflects the reality of professional welding, where following prints and instructions precisely and laying out, cutting out, and assembling weldment accurately are just as essential as high-quality welding. The included projects are small to conserve materials during the learning process, but detailed instructions and abundant photos and illustrations guide students through a wide range of fabrication skills. Key steps and techniques within the small projects are also linked to larger projects presented at the end of each chapter, enabling students to apply what they have learned by fabricating and welding something more substantial. This thorough, reader-friendly text also covers relevant academics, such as shop math and measurement, and prepares students for real-world success by having them document their time and materials for each project and prepare a detailed invoice.
