Spot Welding of Aluminum and Its Alloys

THE question of spot welding aluminum has been quite extensively studied in the laboratories of the Aluminum Company of America. Early in this study, it was necessary to determine what was to be considered a good weld, so as to establish a standard of comparison.


Regarding the National Tour

WHAT did the 1928 National Air Tour prove in the way of airplane reliability and efficiency? That question has been asked this writer, and the writer knows the same question has been asked a number of the pilots who flew in the Tour, as well as several others, who, like myself, were fortunate enough to accompany it.

Mr. R. L. R., of Paterson, N. J., sends in a clipping from a New York paper of an article describing a special ship which will be entered in the race to the Pacific Coast. Part of the description says “Block-tested recently at Roosevelt Field, it is said that the motor registered a speed of 230 miles an hour.”
