This video was a waste of my money and time. I watched no more than 12 minutes of this video when I put it back into the envelope and sent it back the same day I got it in the mail. Simply horrible! I don't know what was worse, the fact that the production, setting, and information given were far from professional, or trying to listen to a guy who sounded like an uneducated redneck. I couldn't believe a guy who rubs potato mush in his eyes for welding flashes was giving tips on arc welding. "Do me a favor, do yourself a favor, grate that potato." What a joke.

Video was entirely too basic to be of much use to anyone. It attempted to cover more area than could be adequately addressed in the time available, and failed to present even some of the most basic considerations in welding practice. For example, what is the difference between AC and DC welding and how are they used? When is polarity changed, and why? The presenter mentioned several welding rods by number, but there was not a single word concerning how welding rods are to be selected, how they are categorized, how they are to be handled and stored, etc., etc.

The quality of the production was not very good, even though the close ups gave a good perspective of the weld puddle at all times. Good practical techniques for the average welder, even though this video is not ment for the performance welder (to-be). The author loves what he does and is proud to show his techniques. The last 40 min. are specially good in relation to typical tricks needed to get things done. The video is probably antiquated since the author does not recommend electronic darkening mask.
