Excerpt from Electric Welding and Welding Appliances Nevertheless it is quite true that the War gave such an impetus to the use of the newer method of welding as many years of endeavour during times of peace would have failed to impart to it. Moreover, the War greatly enlarged the sphere of its application, and was instrumental in bringing home to our manufacturers what a powerful agent was the electric current for the carrying out of certain types of work. As a consequence it has, nowadays, become the rule, rather than the exception, to find electric welding plants in our factories, and there appears to be every probability of such plants being even more extensively employed than they are at present. Furthermore, the War has undoubtedly had the effect of developing and improving the machines and appliances which both are and resistance welding call for.
