Spot Weld Welding Pliers

Spot Weld Welding Pliers

These pliers allow for easy clamping of sheet metal to create spot welds using your MIG welder. These pliers are included in the 13901 Spot Weld Kit.


Welding Hard Copper Rectangle

Welding Hard Copper Rectangle

Fill Holes in Sheet Metal Without Burn-Through – The rectangular copper paddle measures 1 5/16″ wide by 6 1/8″ long. This flat copper plate is clamped onto the metal and then welded from the other side. Weld deposited metal will not stick to the copper while the copper absorbs heat and prevents burn through. Listing is for (1) Rectangular Copper Plate – Triangle sold separate.


Welding Soft Copper Triangle

Welding Soft Copper Triangle

Fill Holes in Sheet Metal Without Burn-Through – The soft annealed copper paddle tapers down from 2 1/2″ over it’s 7 1/4″ length. Readily formed to match most contours this copper plate is clamped onto the metal and then welded from the other side. Weld deposited metal will not stick to the copper while the copper absorbs heat and prevents burn through. Listing is for (1) Triangle Copper Plate – Rectangles are sold separate.

377 - Welding Magnet

377 – Welding Magnet

Generals popular Welding Magnet utilizes heavy duty Alnico Aluminum/Nickel/Cobalt Magnets for a firm hold on ferrous metals under the hottest of temperatures. Unlike most common magnets Alnico will not demagnetize under high heat making it an ideal choice for welders. The Welding Magnet safely holds both sheet metal and tubing at four distinct angles.


Welding Codes, Standards, and Specifications

Welding Codes, Standards, and Specifications

Welder’s bible interprets all four major welding codes Get instant, accurate answers to any question that arises during the design, construction and inspection stages of all your welding projects. This first-ever one-stop guide to the welding codes and standards from the AWS, UBC, AISC, BOCA and many others makes it a breeze to locate codes on every aspect of welding: piping; sheet metal; structural beams; fabrication; bolts and joints; you name it. Packed with useful see-how-to-do-it illustrations, this alphabetized and extensively cross-referenced resource lets you instantly locate the welding code details you need in one of the book’s six convenient sections–general information, structural steel, tables, high strength bolts, reinforcing steel and sheet steel–so you can easily find what you need and get back to work fast.


welding galvanized sheet metal
health risks with the welding of galvanized sheets?

my friend works in a factory where his genius welding in galvanized and he has asthma and I was wondering what the long-term effects of welding these things could be me Abit worried that this could be bad I know that some short-term.

fume fever is the most common condition resulting from welding galvanized (zinc coated) metal fume fever is a species of intoxication metal, and the symptoms are similar to flu, but tends to be triggered by the end of the week and again next week. I do not know if you have long-term effects. If this happens to treat it as a warning sign that the ventilation should be improved, as decent ventilation to reduce exposure to vapors of zinc. also should reduce exposure other gases / fumes or products used in welding. Problems such as electric arcs (like bad sunburn and can cause eye damage) can be avoided by ensuring a proper welding mask, and keep covered. — These are some research for the UK HSE (Health and Safety Executive) in issues with local exhaust ventilation http://www.hse.gov.uk/research/rrpdf/rr683.pdf
