Hi there
I've received a great deal of help from many people here.
My welding is so much better thanks to you all.
I'm starting to do some frame repair/modifications.
Can anyone suggest a book that may help me with learning some of the basics to avoid stress cracks etc?

For example:When to weld around a corner or stop short of the corner.
When to stich weld vs continuous bead.
Does such a book exist?
Thank you

If you are welding thin tubing take a look at "Engineer to Win" by Carrol Smith.
