  • Steel size charts for a rookie

    I am a rookie welder. I have had a small no name wire feed for years and just upgraded to a Miller 175 wire feed. I am a "hobby" welder so this machine though small-is fantastic for the work I do.

    What I am looking for is a complete chart regarding standard steel sizes. Is there a chart someone has that shows complete dimensions for steel stock? Or does someone know of a website that has it?

    an example of what I'm looking for...What is the "inside" measurement of 2x2x .14 gauge?

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated

    brubin,
    I have 2 of the books you are needing, sorry but they're in my bucket at work. I know one is the "pipe fabricator's handbook" and the other is, I THINK ,the "pipefitter's guide". They are full of useful,everyday info on what you are looking for. I'll check the forum again Thurs. and if you leave an e-mail address, I'll forward to you the exact name and order info from the front of these 2 fine handbooks.Good luck!!

      brubin,
      The books I wrote about are:
      pipe fabricator's blue book

      pipe fitter's blue book

      Both are written by W.V. Graves

      address:
      Graves Publishing Co.
      P.O. Box 57924

      Hope this info gives you what you are looking for. I believe the price for each book is around 16.00 each.

        Hey Brubin,
        The easiest and quickest way to get most of the info you need is go by your nearest steel supply and just ask for a catalog. You will find std. weights, sizes and specs. I use several suppliers so I have many cross references.

          Material information

          Frustrating how hard stuff like this can be. Try getting a striaght forward defintion on filler rods and their application. Try the following web site: www.engineersedge.com
