Weldmonger Store Button Big
Using a Lincoln Power Mig 210mp to make multipass welds with 7018 Excalibur rods.

This machine will burn a 1/8″ (3.2mm) 7018 rod all day long.

…and at around 40 lbs.  thats pretty darn impressive for a machine that is primarily a Mig welder.

In this video, I go over  CLAMS for stick welding

CLAMS stands for …Current, Length of Arc, Angle of rod, Manipulation of the electrode, and Speed of travel

Its an easy way to remember those important fundamentals of Stick/Arc welding.

What about you? got any stick welding tips to share?

like your favorite rod, or tricks for restarts?

TIG welding Thick Aluminum with a TIG 175 from Lincoln

I have a Lincoln TIG 175 square wave tig welder and wanted to see how it would hold up welding some one inch thick aluminum parts.

I mixed just a wee bit of helium in with the argon …and it got the job done.

Also at the end of this video, I talk about getting side jobs…and how I price the work.
