This book covers an important and frequently overlooked area of welding - the repair of molds, tools and dies. Because two rather different trades overlap in this process - welding and tool making, the materials and techniques involved have tended to be obscured. For many years, toolmakers and tool users have had to rely on the small number of specialist welders who do understand exactly what welding repair involves and have the skills to carry it out.
Understanding the technical side of tool steels is frequently a problem for welders and understanding the practical side of welding can be a problem for machinists. This book has been written so that specialists from both sides can get to grips with the techniques and procedures involved.
- Wonderfully illustrated with diagrams that explain key points
- Exhaustive reference of steels in the first appendix (48 pages)
- "Reading it is like being taught to weld molds, tools and dies by a friend who is highly experienced in this trade." (Rocky Huber in his review) [via]
