Q & A

What's in the Box

MIG Welding is widely used for car and motorcycle building and modification, but few people really understand how each of the variables affects the finished weld. This program can be easily understood by a beginner, but it covers information even seasoned professionals can learn from. Ron Covell goes through the entire process step-by-step, and gives clear descriptions of how each factor changes the weld, including wire speed, voltage, wire stickout, gun angle, travel speed, and gas flow. He also covers plug welds, patch panels, welding aluminum, and using flux core wire. You'll especially enjoy the special bonus section on Plasma Cutting!

MIG Welding Made Easy

October 03, 2010
Welding has always been somewhat of a mystery to me. Blinding light, sparks, noise and suddenly 2 pieces of metal become one. Or rather, in my case, 2 pieces of metal get warped, covered in slag and get burned full of holes. MIG Welding Made Easy from Ron Covell has proven to be a great reference to me and by following Ron's suggestions my welding has improved considerably. I certainly still don't have the skills that he does, but welding is no longer a black art in my eyes. Ron covers a lot of material, and digesting it as a whole can be a bit overwhelming. Fortunately he's got it subdivided into sections including discussions about welding equipment and setup, basic welds, fitting and welding patch panels and a bit of a spotlight on some more professional equipment that someone like me would probably never need (or could ever afford!) There is even discussion about welding thicker material (car frames, boat trailers, that sort of stuff) and it was very eye-opening for me to see the right way to do things, as opposed to how I was attempting to do them. Some of the provided information could probably fit in a book and make for some good reading, but what I found is the visuals ??_ and especially the sounds ??_ made this video for me. My welds were suffering and I couldn't figure out why, but after the intensive section about making your first welds I had a much better understanding of how my welding sounded, and what I needed to do to improve it. This section alone merits the purchase price. In reference to the previous review that calls this a Miller Welding infomercial, Ron does use Miller products in every scene. The brief section about the more powerful equipment in particular could be construed as a bit of Miller marketing, but if that's all you get out of this video you're clearly not paying attention. I actually find this section quite interesting, as some of the equipment he shows I have not had any experience with. I am pretty confident that the other welding companies out there have similar products and it just happens that Miller was kind enough to provide these to Ron in exchange for mentioning them. In short, unless you have a NASCAR-like devotion to another welding company you shouldn't be bothered by the little Miller logos you occasionally see. I'd much rather see a manufacturer assist in a production like this than have to see irritating blurred-out logos for 80 minutes. The information on this DVD is invaluable to anyone and I heartily recommend it.
Pros:
  • Very informative
  • Easy to follow
Yes, I recommend this product.

Disappointment

January 21, 2010
This video is an infomercial for Miller Welders. 5 minutes of content the rest is a sales job. Save your money.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Covell Metalworking 1000-21 DVD - TIG Welding
(Part #2841021)
                        TIG welding has been long recognized as the premiere welding process, which can make beautiful, strong welds on nearly any metal. In this easy-to-follow program, Ron Covell covers the basic processes used for TIG welding, covering proper machine setup, joint preparation, electrode selection and preparation, torch technique, and perhaps most importantly, what to check for when things go wrong! Ron's thoughtful description of the welding process, coupled with the close-up photography that brings the action into clear view makes the seemingly difficult process of TIG welding easy to understand.

Book - Automotive Welding: A Practical Guide
(Part #28178159)
                        There are varying levels of automotive skill sets  among the automotive enthusiast community. Some people can perform minor  maintenance, some can perform major engine overhauls, and some can  perform minor paint and detailing work. But to truly round out your  skills in mechanical and body or chassis repair and restoration, sooner  or later you will run into a project that requires welding. Once you  have mastered welding, there is very little left that you can't do.

Automotive Welding: A Practical Guide is just the book to get you there. Other welding books vary quite a bit on focus and detail. This book fills the gaps, making it a practical book packed with useful information on the types of projects that a self-trained welder can complete and that a typical automotive enthusiast would want to undertake.

Topics include types of welding and metalworking available or commonly used, the tools required to perform welding tasks, the different types of welders available, basic welding techniques, grinding and cutting, various forms of sheetmetal work, frame repair and reinforcement, filling body holes and rust repair, tube-steel projects, and more.

With restoration and repair work costing a small fortune these days for frame, floorpan, and structural body repair, Automotive Welding: A Practical Guide can save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on your repair or restoration project. If you have a pending restoration project, are considering tackling or acquiring a new project, want to restore a muscle car, build a hot rod or a rat rod on a budget, or simply want to improve your automotive skills, Automotive Welding: A Practical Guide will pay for itself many times over. No shop library would be complete without it!

Book - Advanced Automotive Welding
(Part #28178235)
                        Welding is an essential skill for the avid car  enthusiast, car builder, and fabricator. Engines, exhaust, intake,  suspensions, frames, all can be welded for repair and fabrication  purposes. While many introductory or entry-level welding books are  available on the market, this is the first book to comprehensively cover  advanced techniques, complex joints, advanced processes, and working  with a variety of materials, including aluminum, Chrome-moly, stainless  steel, carbon steel, titanium, and magnesium. American Welding Society  Vice President Jerry Uttrachi is a master welder and he reveals all  major welding processes and techniques, so you can repair and fabricate  using advanced materials and complete complex projects. TIG, MIG,  oxy-acetylene, and stick welding techniques are illustrated for a wide  range of automotive applications. Uttrachi details how to make a butt  joint, single pass butt, double pass butt, joggle joint, lap joint  welds, and numerous other varieties of joint welds. Using the techniques  revealed in this book, you can fabricate body panels, frames, and any  number of structural and functional automotive components, and perform  structural repair. Welding projects found in this book include welding  the tubes of roll cage for strength and safety, welding subframe  connectors for improved chassis rigidity, repairing an aluminum frame,  creating a seat support on a rod, welding in a floor pan on a Triumph  TR3, and many others. With this book, beginner to intermediate  skill-level welders will be able to improve and complete more advanced  projects. Take your welding skills to the next level with this new Pro  Series title.
