The March issue of Welding magazine now is on-line at

This month we focused on resistance welding and automation for the automotive industry, and on ways to improve welds for tubular work.

We also have a feature on what to wear -- and how to plan to keep safe -- when you're welding. There are a lot of new clothing products and protective gear available that will keep you feeling and looking cool.

Besides those features, we have a brief update on the basics of hoses and regulators, and a report on how welding equipment suppliers are keeping their customers up-to-date on software.
