  2. Remotely Controlling Your Weld Settings

    Here’s a common situation for many welders: You’re using a welder/generator, but your worksite isn’t accessible with such a large machine. Maybe you’re welding in a tight spot or on top of a boom lift. Not a problem, you’ve got plenty of long cables. So, you get all set up and ready to weld, pull the trigger and realize, “Shoot...
  3. Lincoln Ranger 260 MPX: Yeah, It’s a Big Deal

    If you have a welder/generator or have even remotely considered getting one, Lincoln just released some big news in the form of the Ranger 260 MPX. This comes hot on the heels of the Ranger 330 MPX, a game-changing machine that Lincoln released just earlier this year.  Why is the 260 MPX such a big deal? The 330 MPX might...
  4. Pro-Tips To Save Your Tips

    Ah, the MIG gun. May we forever bask in your ease-of-use and speed. For many welders, their adoration for their MIG gun can border on unhealthy.  But when tip problems happen, all that love becomes a violent level of hatred generally only reserved for telemarketers. While tip issues can be annoying, knowing how to remedy their most common problems can...
  5. Welders’ Picks: Most Reviewed Helmets

    Protection is something you don’t want to mess around with. The “safety squints” or a low quality helmet are not worth the risk. What you need is gear that you can trust to get the job done, and who better to ask than your fellow welders. Following last month’s post on the most reviewed welding machines, let's check out the...
  6. Representing America Through Welding

    What honestly is America? A place, you say? But it wasn’t always America, so who decided when dirt was turned into a nation. Sure, America is a people, but there’s 7.5 billion people on earth — What makes Americans different? An idea, a vision. The land, the people — they’ve always been here. The difference is a dream, a constantly...
  7. Welders’ Picks: Most Reviewed Machines

    Buying welding machines can sometimes feel like walking through a minefield. You hope your purchase won’t blow up in your face, but how do you know without trying? It’d be a whole lot easier if you could see where other people had stepped, learned from their mistakes and successes. That’s exactly why reviews are so helpful. To help you decide...
  8. How and Why Do the Amish Weld?

    For the amish community, the main idea is simplicity: removing distractions and focusing on the parts of life that the modern world tends to forget. That means cars, televisions, radios and the internet (for the most part). Even clothing buttons are viewed as an unnecessary distraction. Welding, on the other hand, can be highly complex. Non-electric forms of welding often...
  9. Avoiding the Summer Slowdown

    Old man winter might make welding difficult, but summer has its own challenges. While the warm weather melts away the snow and makes it easier to weld in open spaces, the heat can be miserable. In fact, it’s scientifically proven that heat causes your body to slow down. It’s a survival instinct to regulate your internal temperature, making for some...
  10. Step-Back Welding Art

    Face blindness. Believe it or not, you can actually become “blind” to faces. Essentially your brain stops being able to recognize and distinguish the various features that make up your mug. Being diagnosed with face blindness, you’d think that Chuck Close would have no business being a portrait artist. How can you paint faces when you can’t even see them...
