The purpose of this Bulletin_114 is to provide Links to Online Sources.

The subject of Welding Sheet Metal is not new to this website.

Several references can be found by performing a Search.

However until now a dedicated list was not available.

Concentrated references are probably handy to find what is needed.

There are obvious differences in the processes and techniques to be used for different materials.

However thin sheets present special requirements that must be met to obtain acceptable results.

Many references are given to website pages explaining in detail the precautions suggested.

We hope that the most important were included, and if advised, we are ready to add those left out of the list by oversight.

When commercial companies are referred to, the idea is to show their recommendations. There is no intention to endorse or recommend any of them.

The references provided here are believed to be reliable but no effort was exerted to grade them by any possible criterion.

It is left to the readers to investigate and find out for themselves if the services offered indeed cover their needs and purposes.

The references published in this Bulletin_114 were selected to provide useful knowledge to our readers.

The addresses reported hereafter in this Bulletin_114 were live and correct at the time of their publication.

There is no guarantee that they will always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.

Note: References to articles or other documents are given here in one of two forms.

If the links are "live" (usually underlined or otherwise highlighted) they are operated with a click of the mouse.
