Oxy-acetylene torch welding is covered in depth, starting with bottle safety, regulator pressure settings, and torch adjustment for different material thicknesses from .040" to .063". Flux types and applications are then discussed, followed by tacking methods, and distortion and crack control. Horizontals ("in-position") as well as vertical ("out of position") welding methods are demonstrated. Special attention is given to proper eyewear, flux cleanup, planishing, and filing.
