  1. The Fires Of Love

    Ah, February, the one time of year a chunky? naked baby is legally allowed to launch heart-shaped projectiles at people in the name of love. All this steamy romance starts to warm things up. Those fires of love would make the perfect BBQ, wouldn’t they? Or how about a good ol’ fire pit? Fire pits and BBQs are one of...
  2. Bad Habits That You Don’t Know You Have

    Welding is a science, there’s no doubt about it. But in reality, it often comes down to experience: the “feel” of the weld pool, how the arc sounds. Welders learn by doing over and over, creating habits. In most cases, this is a good thing. Welders don’t generally repeat the same activity if it produces negative results. But that’s not...
  3. When to Build and When to Buy

    There’s that feeling, when you realize that you can pretty much build anything you can dream up. It’s empowering. You’re no longer shackled to what others are selling. Don’t like the look of that outdoor table? You can build your own. Think that fire pit is too expensive? Build your own. You’re more than a welder, you’re a creator. But...
  4. Do You Need Flame-Resistant Clothing?

    There’s a little bit of truth to every meme. Now hopefully you’ve never caught on fire while welding, but let’s face the facts, it’s a whole lot more of a possibility than most lines of work or hobbies. You’re not generally playing with heat hot enough to melt metal during golf or working in an office. Fire isn’t something that...
  5. Top Welding Machines of 2019

    What does New Years have to do with welding machines? Everything. Because there’s this awful little nugget called inflation. To keep up with inflation, welding companies have to increase prices. Those price increases generally start to happen early in the beginning of the year. In other words, now’s the time to take advantage of the best prices before they go...
  6. Are New Year’s Resolutions Bad for Welders?

    Geez, seems like an obvious question. Goals are always a good thing, right? According to a recent study, only 8% of people accomplish their New Year’s resolution. If 92% of your welds failed, you’d be out of a job. New Year’s resolutions as we know them aren’t necessarily bad, but for most of us, they aren’t much of anything. In...
  7. How to Stop Seeing Green

    Most modern auto-darkening helmets feel as if you’re welding with night vision goggles. Like you’re James Bond on an important mission to pipe weld the world. It doesn’t make any sense. Most auto-darkening screens are purple on the front, so why does everything appear greenish yellow when you look through them? The purple coloring on the front of the lens...
  8. Holiday Welding Projects

    Staying busy during the coldest months is essential for surviving the winter. As the sun sinks away, it can often become easy to focus on the darkness.

  9. Do You Need to Go to College to Weld?

    A recent study from Georgetown found that next year, almost 2/3rds of jobs will require some type of college or other formal education beyond high school. What exactly does this mean for the welding industry? Experience Matters The lapse of the recession has been good for welders. But there are still plenty of us out there that feel it’s difficult...
  10. How to use Welding for Halloween

    Some welds might be scary enough on their own. But if you’re intentionally trying to give your home a unique look on Halloween, there are some crucial tips to really create a spooky display in a safe, trick-or-treat-friendly way.
