I would recommend for experienced welders, it is a good quick reference guide for a non-trade welder/fabricator. Its compact enough to carry with you at a work site.

This was a Christmas gift. I cannot rate it. I chose it because it appeared to meet all the requirements one would want from a pocket reference.

Great for quick referece July 10 2010
By Karl Groves - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book to have. I sort of question the "Pocket Reference" concept in general, as I would hope that most professional welders would know the topics covered in it already, but as a hobbyist welder I found the information here quite valuable.

Pretty Good book but has downfalls Jan. 16 2013
By Brandon Pike - Published on
Format: Paperback
I got this book as a xmas present and The book has ALOT of info. I would of like to see more on MIG/flux core though. Theres very little about MIG. Mostly on SMAW (stick) process and Oxy fuel cutting and welding. Has great refrence to different stick electrodes. Theres also lesser know process of welding in the book that I feel are a waste of ink to print about like Buried Arc which they should of just used the space to talk about MIG and the different wires and such but dont. This book is a reference book but some info is hard to find in the book when u need it. Section on TIG is pretty good too.

So basically if u do SMAW, GTAW, or oxy fuel get the book if all u do is GMAW process dont buy it because it would be useless to you.

SMAW = Stick

Good, But Narrowly Useful Jan. 27 2015
By New England Yankee - Published on
Format: Paperback
Please note that this review is written primarily from an amateur/hobbyist perspective. While I have welding training and have passed certifications testing in the past, I do not weld for a living.

This is an excellent stick reference - if you need the details it contains. Most hobbyists, however, need little of this information and don't have the skills to take advantage of some of it anyway. Most pros won't either ... what they do will usually be dictated in a manufacturing or industrial setting, and someone in a job shop will know most of it cold anyway.

So its real value is for a pro who needs to do something unusual perhaps, or maybe an engineer who needs to spec welds but is not a welding pro himself. But a pocket reference? Is a guy in a truck going to have all the rod types handy? Nope. Does the engineer need a pocket reference? Nope. Does the hobbyist who has a buzzbox and no controlled rod storage? Chances are he's running 6011 on everything anyway. And those with better stick machines are likely only using 6010 and 7018 in addition anyway. The hobbyist can easily do just fine with a quick internet lookup before lighting up on the latest project.

I have this book, thumbed through it a few times, and it sits on the shelf. When I need information quickly, I hit the internet. If I think it's needed, I'll look for a competent video, usually starting with Welding Tips and Tricks.

By all means, buy the book if actually need not just a reference but a pocket reference. Especially if most of what you do is stick. Anyone else - meh ...
