Hi, I am Elia E. Levi, a Mechanical Engineer, retired after more than 40 years of work in the Industry. I am specialized in Welding, M.Sc. in Metallurgy, and I consult regularly on the most diverse welding and metallurgical problems. I often contribute also to Engineering Fora (plural of "Forum"... a Latin word).

See for yourself the following

I keep in touch with a long list of readers of my monthly Practical Welding Letter available at no cost by Subscription, and I routinely write articles in the technical press, as I report in my publications.

See Welding Articles.

Besides building and maintaining this Welding Advisers Website,
I answer daily to various Welding-plan specific queries that come to me by e-mail.
I believe my answers are sought for, and the Testimonials I get
(as reported in PWL) demonstrate appreciation.


Whoever qualifies as one of the following:
Hobby Welder, Individual Artisan, small Shop Owner, Student etc.,
will get free advice from this website.

Industrial Companies willing to hire my consulting services, will be able to exploit my professional expertise by issuing a Purchase Order for a fee, and I will stay with their problem until it is solved to their satisfaction.
