Here is your chance to buy a state of the art electric welding machine that will enable you to create or maintain those home projects.
One of the first welding processes ever used was known as forge welding. Forge welding attempts to join two metals through a process of heating, and then pounding and striking. It's what blacksmiths did.
But, since then, there have been many advancements in the welding world. With these new methods and techniques, welding has left the confines of industrial settings and can now be done practically anywhere. In fact, many people are doing it themselves at home.
Understanding welding basics can come in handy at work, but it will just as often come in handy around the house, in the workshop or on your farm. Because of this, welding is a skill that almost anyone can benefit from, male or female, young or old.
For chores like these, most welders rely on a process known as arc welding. Arc welding is a method where during the welding process, an electrical current jumps through an air gap (between a positively charged electrode and a negatively charged steel plate) and produces an enormous amount of heat. This heat is produced at the end of a welding rod, and when it does, metal can be melted. Well, it's a little more complicated than that, but the concept is the same.
Perhaps the most common and economical electric welding method used today is AC (alternating current) arc welding.This welding machine in our store is ideal for most of your simple, routine welding jobs. Therefore, AC arc welding is ideal for those of you just starting out.
