The following is a bit of useful information from David J. Keats of Speciality Welds, reprinted with permission from "Fusion Line",
Speciality Weld Newsletter, Issue 24, 2007

UK machine manufacture, Newark, visited us to discuss the Swordfish arc cutting electrodes, for a somewhat unusual MoD application. With a site visit to BAE Systems necessary in order to demonstrate the product to cut damaged tracks from an armoured vehicle, using only the vehicles power supply. Master welders from the MoD confirmed Swordfish performed well and was able to cut the track considerably quicker and neater than the current method and was also easier to use. The photo shows the cut line in one of the track knuckles.

From William Heltsley, Research Assistant, Stanford University

Dear Elia,

I have been a faithful reader of your newsletter for a long time, and I just wanted to congratulate you on achieving 50 issues! While I am only moderately proficient at welding myself (although I enjoy it for small assemblies in the lab and personal projects) I am a mechanical engineer and greatly appreciate the summarized information you provide about new and old techniques, tools, and materials. Your newsletter is a valuable resource for me, as it teaches me more about the techniques that are available and how to design for manufacturability when welding processes are present, and I will continue to enjoy it as long as you produce it!


From C. Sridhar

I like not only the contents there in , but also the web - references which are very very useful in one way or other.

Please keep it up, hope to see Platinum, Centenary PWLs also in a short time.
