Mid May Bulletin

May 15, 2006


When you need information on subjects related to Welding we think our Website, Welding Advisers ( is a good place to start from. That is why we urge our readers to Bookmark it and to subscribe to our
Welding Site Blog by clicking on the orange buttons under the NavBar in each website page.

When you have a question send it to us by e-mail by clicking on the Contact Us button from the NavBar. But first we would suggest that you:

  • Check the Site Map
  • Check the FAQ Page
  • Check the Welding Topics
  • Perform a Google Search


We present here a Bulletin that will include notes likely to be of help to our readers. May we suggest you to save or bookmark this page for future reference.

Time and again our readers asked for a comprehensive Index of pertinent Resources available online. While it would be quite difficult to produce one single List for all subjects, we think it is easier for us to prepare and for readers to consult it in small chunks. Our first installment is presented here.

Online Resources (1)

We hope we are providing a useful and agreeable service to our readers by listing Resources readily available on the Internet on the subjects of Welding, Metallurgy and related topics.

This time we are dealing with welding Stainless Steels and Nickel Alloys.

We will gladly hear from our readers which subjects are of most interest to them. If they know and appreciate additional sources that are likely to interest also other fellow readers, we will add them to our List upon their recommendation.
Contact Us.

Some of the listed sources are provided by commercial firms. Although the information might be slightly biased toward the firm products and interests, attentive readers will be able to extract the important know-how they need.
