James F. Lincoln Foundation

The Arc Welding Bookshelf


The James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation
was created through a deed of trust to
encourage and stimulate scientific interest in
and scientific study, research and education
in respect of the development of the arc
welding industry through advance in the
knowledge and design and practical application
of the arc welding process. As a contribution
to scientific progress and to promote industrial
progress through education, the Foundation
produces and publishes books and other
educational materials as a non-profit service
to the industry.

JFLF Overview
The James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation
is a non-profit, welding education organization
founded in 1936 to promote welding as a
better method of joining metals and to
promote welding as a career choice. Today
numerous low cost welding educational
textbooks, videos, DVDs, teaching aids and
no cost periodicals and technical papers are
available through the Foundation.

In addition, the JFLF awards over $45,000 in


cash and prizes each year to the winners of
its welding design project contests, as well
as the state and national SkillsUSA welding
competition winners. See their website,
www.jflf.org for details on specific contest
rules, regulations and application forms.

A Few of the Popular Textbooks and Videos

The Procedure Handbook of Arc Welding (PH)


14th Edition
Published by The James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation
With over 500,000 copies of previous editions published since 1933, the Procedure
Handbook is considered by many to be the Bible of the arc welding industry.
The hardbound book contains over 750 pages of welding information, techniques,
procedures, photographs, drawings and charts. Much of this material has never
been included in any other book. A must for all welders, supervisors, engineers and
designers. Many welding instructors will want to use the book as a reference for all
students. $30
Metals and How to Weld Them (MHW)
2nd Edition
by T.B. JEFFERSON and GORHAM WOODS
This book describes the internal structure of metals and its relation to mechanical
and physical properties and weld ability. This dual purpose textbook and reference
manual is written in non-technical language so students, welders, supervisors,
engineers and educators will easily understand all data. The 400 page book is 6x9
with gold embossed hard cover.

Arc Welded Projects, Vol. V (AP-V)
Published by The James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation
The projects described in this 200 page book represent the range of entries
submitted in the James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation Award Programs both
as to the type and size of the project, and the nature of the descriptive information
included. Each project is detailed, including prints and bills of material, so the do-it
yourself person can understand and build these helpful projects. It also provides
great ideas for welding school class projects. Arc Welding Projects I through IV
also available.
