“I am the QC Manager at a ASME Section VIII shop. One of the things I needed to do was teach welders how to read weld maps. A lot of the welders we employed had been welding for years and were proficient at welding but had a “mom and pop shop” kind of knowledge. I needed a way to show them how to understand weld symbols. Most books that I found had good explanations, but yours was the first one that I saw that was very intuitive and easy to follow.”

“That welding PDF is the best of its kind I’ve found online. On the engineering side, matching pictures of the process to the symbols is very helpful. I keep it on my desktop as a reference, much better than the single page of symbols with a 2 word description(that means almost nothing to me). I have a non-traditional engineering background so the pictures help me to be confident that I am asking for what I think I am asking for. Can’t say enough good things about this reference, and would absolutely recommend this to anyone needing to create or interpret welding drawings. Thank you very much for creating something this good and passing it around for free! I will be looking forward to seeing what you create in the future.”

“I have downloaded your Welding Symbols E-book because I was looking for an explanation about the welding symbol used by a contractor in one of our projects. I am not a welder myself but a designer, and it is sometimes not obvious to understand what kind of weld is related to a symbol. Furthermore, the symbols are often badly used which could lead to confusion. The presentation of your book is not very sexy, but the examples are clear with the dimensions on the drawings. Your book is very valuable for engineers not familiar with the welding processes and all the possible types of welds. I have appreciated your book and I thank you for this.”
