Default Welding references

I'm just posting some basic reference material. When I figure out how to post a pdf I will. Until then...

Having a basic understanding various types of welded joints will help you select materials and assist you in developing your design. Below is a link to Welded Joint Design MIL-STD-22 that will help you visualize different types of joints and how to construct them. Also there are a couple of weld symbol charts to help you sort out which weld to use when you are sketching out your design.

Basic rule for sizing fillet welds is fillet welds can only be as thick as your thinnest member. Meaning generally when you have a corner joint or a T joint coming together where one leg is .25 and the other leg is .125 your weld can be no bigger than .125. I think the reasons for this are pretty obvious some times you may want to build up a welded joint and that is something different all together.

This is a link to Welded Joint design. It does deal with some pretty thick material that most people will probably never use but it a great aid in visualizing what it is you need to do.


The charts I have are a little blurry. I will try to find some better ones.

Websites that provide useful information:

Welding tips and tricks- Awesome website packed with practical info.

American Welding Society (AWS)- What can you say, it's a society.

This has to be one of the best sites around for all kinds of welding info. I am on here every couple of days reading stuff. There are also a lot of good videos.
