In this article, we’ll cover the benefits of cheater lenses and talk about how to...
  4. Welding’s Most Bizarre and Creative Projects

    We’re often blown away by the photos that we receive of welding projects you’re all working on: Classic car restorations, furniture, fire pits, vehicle modifications—all sorts of incredible pieces.

  8. Welding in the Void: Saturation Diving

    Darkness. An engulfing, black void like you’ve never experienced before. Beyond your small headlight, the world is simply gone: No shapes, no faint colors, just emptiness. Everything feels so empty, you begin to see things that aren’t there. As one saturation diver said, “When you’re out that deep in the water, your brain tries to fill the void. At least...
  9. Going Rogue: In-Depth Review of ESAB Rogue Series

    Especially with welder prices going up, having an ESAB stick/TIG welder for under $1,000 is an incredibly good deal.

  10. How will Metal 3D Printing Affect Welding?

    It’s both magic and unsettling at the same time to watch a 3D printer at work. Its movements are cold, calculated and unnatural.

Up until...
