If you weld or cut metal, you need consumable items...In addition to filler materials, the MIG nozzles, tips, TIG electrodes, cups, diffusers, shielding, plasma torch pieces and a host of other parts get consumed during normal welding and cutting processes. For years now, HTP America products have been prominent at the magazine's welding shop/studio. Fabricators rely upon HTP America welding and other equipment, and HTP America is also a surprisingly well-stocked source for consumables—and not just for the HTP America line of equipment. HTP America has expanded into quality consumables
If you need an overview of welding processes and tips on how to weld, there is already a good block of welding information and instructional material at the magazine website (www.4WDmechanix.com). I just dropped the word "welding" into the magazine's search box and the URLs below came up. Many weldors like the gas welding insights, gas welding is a great foundation for TIG and very useful for light gauge and smaller metal parts where a diffuse heat is advantageous. When time permits, I'd like to do an instructional/tutorial on each type of welding, and make the series available for Vime
Welding can be a gratifying vocation or a hobby. Some weld for a living, day in and day out, and I taught adult education level students to value this trade for automotive body, chassis, structural, casting, maintenance and repair work careers. In this forum, the community of professionals and hobbyists can come together and discuss the various aspects of welding and brazing: stick (SMAW), oxy-acetylene (gas), MIG (wire feed or GMAW, solid wire and fluxcore), TIG (tungsten electrode or GTAW) and silver brazing (hard, higher temperature soldering with oxy-acetylene).
