I got "Aircraft Welding by L.S. Elzea" in the mail today. It's on gas welding only, written in 1942 to help train welders for the war effort. It's a reprint by Lindsay Publications for $15.95. I have been welding many years but still found it very informative and one of the best gas welding books I've seen. It covers jigging etc. Larry

I like to read books like this. Did you buy it from a mail order house?

Hi Cub Junkie, Lindsay Publications reprint old books on lots of subjects and sell them at very good prices. I don't mean to sound like a commercial for them, but I have bought several books on machining, casting etc. Larry
