Re: light gauge metal welding

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Although I no longer have access to a copy, the AISI Specification for Cold
Formed Steel Construction has some information on this and I also believe
that AWS D1.3 (?) is the specification for welding light gage steel.  I'll
check in the office on Monday to see if I have any technical notes from the
LGSEA (Light Gage Steel Engineers Association) on this subject.  Sorry that
I can't be of more help right now.
