Welding is a dangerously hot job. Though all tools are important, we believe that the most important ones are the items that every welder should have to keep themselves safe. We have listed the safety items that we believe are the most important, as well as other tools that are needed, in order of their priority.
Auto-darkening welding helmets safeguard a welder from flying sparks and debris hitting the face and also protects their eyes from the blindingly fluorescent welding spark.
2. ELECTRODE HOLDER
An electrode holder, commonly called a stinger, is a clamping device for holding the electrode securely in any position. The welding cable attaches to the holder through the hollow insulated handle.
A Chipping hammer is used for removing welding slag and welding spatter from welds.
A wire brush is used for cleaning off debris before, after and between each pass to avoid contamination of the weld.
5. WELDING CLAMPS
Clamps are versatile tools that serve to temporarily hold work securely in place. They are used for many applications including carpentry, woodworking, furniture making, welding, construction and metal working.
6.TIG WELDING GLOVES TIG
welding gloves have thinner and more flexible material with fire-resistant fabric.
7. WELDING JACKET
welding jackets are thick and fire resistant, and they protect a welder’s body well.
8. MIG WELDER
MIG welding, also known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), is a process that utilizes a continuously fed solid electrode, shielding gas from an externally supplied source, and electrical power to melt the electrode and deposit this molten material in the weld joint.
9. WELDING MARKER
marker is used to mark the metal and determine where the welds are to be made.
10. MIG PLIERS
MIG pliers are essential components of a welder’s kit. They can be used for various small functions.
Cutting off burned wire before starting a new bead Removing contact tip from the gun Cleaning spatters out of the gun nozzle Removing the gun gas diffuser Propping up a piece to hold it in place for welding A welder utilizes many other tools for their trade, but the
