  1. Keeping Your Welder/Generator Alive

    Keeping Your Welder/Generator Alive
    Purchasing a welder generator is a big decision. You want to know you’re getting the best setup for the best deal. When you do decide to seal the deal, you want to make sure your welder/generator is going to last you a very long time. As in, your still-working welder/generator should be at your funeral. Sadly, so many welder/generator owners...

  2. How to Prevent Spattering

    How to Prevent Spattering
    Wouldn’t it be great if your workpiece wasn’t covered in metallic baby vomit after you finished welding? Completely preventing spatter has been the Holy Grail of welders and welding equipment companies alike. And it’s impossible. At least at this current moment. Spatter is just part of the MIG process. BUT that doesn’t mean you can’t avoid most spattering and the...

  3. Becoming a Welding Artist

    Becoming a Welding Artist
    It’s a big fat can of worms stuffed inside a truck packed to the brim with cans of worms. We’re opening the Pandora’s Box of controversial welding subjects. You’re thinking, “What in the world are they talking about? Welding artists aren’t controversial.” And you’re right, but what makes a “welder” into an “artist” is controversial. So before the comments...

  4. Can You Walk The Cup?

    Can You Walk The Cup?
      What’s the point? It’s a serious question. Is walking the cup like a suit tie, a fancy-looking piece of fabric that serves no function other than to embarrassingly attract stains? Is it all just for show, or is there a real purpose? You’ll find welders from experts to enthusiasts arguing both sides of the spectrum when it comes...

  5. Welding in the Food World

    Welding in the Food World
      What’s the most nerve-racking project to work on? A bridge? A plane? A nuclear bomb? How about food grade piping? Sure it doesn’t seem too bad, but welding in the food industry actually requires some of the most precise and pure workmanship possible. The consequences for doing a shoddy job can be deadly (literally). Here’s a basic intro...

  6. How to Plasma

    How to Plasma
      The truth is that there’s still millions of welders across the world that don’t even have a basic understanding of plasma cutting and how it works. Even within the last 10 years, plasma cutting has entirely changed. So, why do I need to know about plasma cutting at all? When it comes to ways of manipulating metal, plasma...

  7. How the Cutmaster 60i Stacks Up

    How the Cutmaster 60i Stacks Up
    The plasma cutting world is not an easy market to compete in. Within the last decade, we’ve seen incredible innovations from brands like Hypertherm, Thermal Dynamics, Lincoln, Miller and more. The caliber of plasma machines seem to double in quality every year. Now Thermal Dynamics have released a plasma cutter they’ve nicknamed “The beast.” But is this monster just another...

  8. What to Know About Plasma Gouging

    What to Know About Plasma Gouging
    Plasma gouging is by far one of the most overlooked processes in welding. Even welders with plasma cutting units often don’t know what plasma gouging is or how to do it. It’s like having a pocket knife but only using its bottle opener. There’s so much more your plasma cutter has to offer than just cutting. Gouging can be an...

  9. What Caused the Cast-Iron Collapse?

    What Caused the Cast-Iron Collapse?
    We’re in the middle of the cast-iron renaissance. Seriously, this material was actually named as one of 2016’s “hot” items. A new wave of younger Americans are rediscovering the cast-iron ways, especially when it comes to cookware. Cast-iron items don’t require chemicals (such as used in Teflon) to create a non-stick surface. Many mass-produced aluminum products have become so cheaply-made...

  10. IOC and the Indy 500

    IOC and the Indy 500
    We were there, in the beginning. The automobile was first coming into public view, blanketed by a shroud of excitement and mystery. These metal marvels allowed us to exceed speeds we’d been limited to for thousands of years. Everyone was fascinated. We were fascinated. “We” meaning two brothers. John and Walter Brant, born and raised in Indiana. At the time...
