“Even though GMAW is relatively simple process to execute in comparison to other welding processes, there are a lot of moving parts that will either make or break your weld. New welders have a lot to consider, including understanding the base metal, the type of weld necessary, how to set up the machine, and how the best to lay the bead. Knowing which is best for the application is often part of the challenge.”
I’d like to thank Adam Urbano, my listed co-author, for his welding expertise. Without his in-depth view of the subject I wouldn’t have been able to write this article. Also thanks to Ian Patrick for his photography skills and answering the call for help on short notice – again.
