Provide your welding and fabrication students with a clear, concise tool to develop the essential print reading skills they'll need the first day on the job!


To be a successful welder or fabricator, it is crucial to be able to build something correctly from reading the design requirements shown on a drawing. Print Reading for Welding and Fabrication, 2/e, continues to provide a logical, easy-to-understand path for students learning to read and interpret drawings that are typically found in the industry. Each chapter clearly presents objectives and key terms, offers practical exercises, and concludes with a chapter containing easy-to-follow explanations of the mathematics needed to properly decipher prints. Throughout, the author emphasizes the codes, standards, and industrial practices that students will be most likely to encounter – including concepts and terminology from the American Welding Society (AWS) and The Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

During his time at BAC, Kevin won the Illinois State VICA (Vocational Industrial Clubs of America) competition and placed second at the National VICA competition, where welding skills and properly reading technical weld drawings are tested. He has worked in the field as a sheet metal worker, fabricator welder, quality assurance technician, welding technician, welding application engineer, laser welding engineer, consultant, ISO management representative, adjunct professor, and in his current position of Assistant Professor of Welding Technology at Southwestern Illinois College.


Kevin has traveled extensively throughout the world installing and servicing automated welding systems, writing welding procedures, and training welders.

He is a member of the American Welding Society (AWS), is a past chairman of the AWS St. Louis Section, and currently serves on the St. Louis Section board.
