Two, sure why not? Three, things are getting a little crazy. But...
  3. Artistic Welding And You

    Often welding is split into 2 different categories of thought: structural welding and artistic welding. This differentiation has caused a lot of welders to assume some welding techniques can only be used while wearing a beret and holding a painter’s palette. The simple truth is, many techniques commonly labeled “artistic” are great ways to make your projects look much more...
  4. Will You Be Replaced By A Robot?

    We’ve got manless drones soaring around and children scooting down the streets on electrical motorized machines.

  9. 3 Of The World’s Biggest Welding Projects

    1. The Emma Maersk Ship Half a century ago, steel ships were built with rivets. Hot metal dowels were placed in the holes of two overlapping steel plates while the dowels were still malleable. The end of the dowels were then smashed flat, pinning the 2 sheets of metal together. However, rivets proved to be unreliable and difficult to maintain...
  10. Climate Control Your Face

    Scorching metal well beyond its boiling point takes more heat than the devil himself could handle. Throw a giant, air-trapping steel cage over your head and you’ve got your own personal inferno.
