Thanks to Anthony Rohan and Katie Denno from Taylor-Winfield for providing the picture of Thomas Edison standing next to Henry Ford observing a resistance welding operator.
April 2019, is National Welding Month and in celebration, I published an article about Benardos titled, The Beginnings of Modern Welding. Here is the Welding Journal cover.
I recently completed editing the Historical Perspective, that will be published in the Brazing Handbook, 6th Edition and published by the American Welding Society.
I was Acknowledged by Janice Chambers of Utah State Univeristy who co-authored a paper for the SEAOC 2014 Conference titled Electroslag Welding Solutions for High-Seismic Regions.
My contribution to the Brazing Handbook can be found in Chapter 1, Historical Perspective. Follow this link to the American Welding Society for more information about the Fifth Edition published in January 2008.
I have my first article published with Welding Design & Fabrication 'Engine-Driven Arc Welding Machines', in the July 2005 issue.Right-Click | Save Link as.. | View PDF
ESAB celebrates its 100th Anniversary of O. Kjellberg's Invention of the covered electrode. The greatest invention following 25 years of welding curiosity. The whole magazine is devoted to welding history from the perspective of Sweden. An article, "A History of Welding", written by Klas Weman, examines the history of arc welding and ESAB's involvement with moving the technology into the future.

"Brazing Footprints: Case Studies in High-Temperature Brazing" by Robert L. Peaslee. A remarkable book, completely indexed to the Brazing Q & A's that were published in the Welding Journal from 1989 to 1999. Written by the 'Father of Brazing' who provides tremendous insight to the world of brazing that he created.
