Wall Mountain Company Arc Welding 1 DVD, Model# 300DVD
all you need to get started stick welding
I used this video to teach myself stick welding. It is all you need to get started. If you are serious about welding you will want to pick up a few books as well, but there is nothing better than "seeing it done". I have the set on Oxyacetylene welding and the Arc Welding 2 set as well. If you are new to welding you will not find a better video for getting started.

Good video to get you started
I bought this when I took up welding after I got tired of having to send all my welding projects out. With a little practice and reviewing the video again I was making some really good welds. This video gives you good basics to start with.

Really helped me
This movie has really helped me, I keep watching it over and over, There's just way to much information to remember it all. I did not know how to arc weld at all. It was well worth the money.

Arc Welding 1 DVD
Good DVD on the basics of arc welding. Good info on the designations of the welding rods and their applications. DVD showed laying horizontal beads. It could have included basic vertical on over-head bead laying. Good product for someone who doesn't have any knowledge of SMAW - Shielded Metal Arc Welding.

Great start to get started on welding
I just started welding with minimal instruction. This DVD was great to help me understand the basics of welding. It is NOT a safety course, so make sure you get that somewhere else, but the basic machanics of welding.
This tells you what to watch as you weld and gives you information about the different welding rods available.

Not much content
I was not real impressed with the amount of content in the video. It had some good visuals of what a good weld bead should look like but that was about it. It skipped some basics such as: material prep, joint fitup, etc.

I found the DVD to be very informative and easy to understand. I have also
purchased the other welding DVD's and hope to get through them soon.
Great for beginners!

Arc Welding For the Novice
I recently purchased an older gasoline Miller Welder. No experience with welding. After watching the video I was able to weld a set of handles and legs and attached a pair of wheels for the welder making it easier to move.
I have watched the video several times and believe my welds have improved. I am no where near a professional but have confidence my welds will hold. They get "prettier" each time I practice.

Absolute Necessity for Beginning Welders
Instructions were easy to understand, covered everthing I needed to know such as the different type welders, welding rods and setting for different types of welding projects. I had welded before but was not sure of what I was doing, this DVD helped me considerably and now my technique has improved and I understand the basics so I can move on to more difficult projects. Great instruction.
