  1. The Ultimate Fire Pit Fabrication Guide

    “A fire pit! A FIRE PIT?!” We can hear you skeptics yelling at the top of your lungs. “Cavemen have been making fire pits for hundreds of thousands of years, how hard could it be?!” While your most basic fire pit can be created by an asthmatic toddler, any self-respecting welder will have significantly higher expectations for themselves.

    Close your eyes. Imagine a grizzled man wearing a thick apron. In his hand, he holds a thick tree branch, which he jabs at a piece of metal, trying to produce an arc. For your average person, that’s often what comes to mind when someone says “stick welding.” While it’s amusing, the primitiveness of that mental image isn’t so far...

  6. How to Flux-Core Like a Pro

    Flux-core is the Hunchback of welding processes. Like Quasimodo of Notre Dame, flux-cored welding is sometimes cast away because of its hideous appearance. But with a little bit of love and a grinder, it cleans-up real nice (flux-core that is—don’t use a grinder on Quasimodo). In fact, flux-core (also called FCAW) has some serious advantages that can actually make it...
  7. A New Level of Welding Helmet

    While army knives and sketchy bank accounts might be the most well known contributions the Swiss have made to the world, a third item should be added to that list: Optrel helmets—more specifically, the brand new Optrel Helix CLT.

  8. Why Does OSHA Exist?

    1878—The world’s largest flour mill was basked in the late spring afternoon sunlight as the day workers’ shift came to an end. 14 night workers would continue to maintain the monstrous structure through the evening, a skeleton crew for such a large installation.  In some ways, not only did a job at the mill provide a paycheck, it made you...

    For the past few years, supply chain issues meant demand for welding machines and equipment was way higher than manufacturer’s could supply. Because of this, almost every manufacturer pulled their rebate program, such as Miller’s Build with Blue that disappeared completely.
