Abstract : This technical information report describes a lightweight, mobile welding shop designed to provide field forces with a previously unavailable facility for both gas and electric arc welding. The shop contains a 300-amp DC, gasoline-driven welding machine designed to provide both constant current and constant voltage. The 800-pound, skid-mounted welding machine can accommodate metal arc welding with flux-coated electrodes, metal inert-gas (MIG) welding, and tungsten inert-gas (TIG) welding. In addition, the shop provides for oxyacetylene welding, brazing, soldering, and cutting. Designed for rough treatment and heavy use, prototypes of the trailer-mounted welding shop have been tested and found satisfactory from the standpoint of both performance and durability. (Author)
