A ground clamp is a type of safety device used by welders. The clamp will act as a conductor, by having one of the work cables being attached to it usually through a nut or bolt that is already fastened on their head. The purpose of these is to prevent any type of electrical shock.
This is a soldering tool that is used to control the temperature and the soldering iron. It has a station that is used to control the temperature of the soldering tool and a place where the soldering iron can be attached. They are commonly used in:
What is an Analog Soldering Station?
This is a type of electrode that is very resistant to breaking, giving it a long lifespan. This is an electrode that is coated in copper which can enhance its conductivity, and give you a cooler operation. These also have a fine edge, are heat resistant, and resistant to oxidation.
TIG stands for Tungsten Inert Gas. TIG is a type of welding that is also referred to as Heli-arc welding. This torch is able to generate heat through an arc of electricity which originates from a tungsten electrode which is then transferred to the object that you plan on soldering.
It can be used to weld:
These torches use pressurized fuel, usually butane or propane, in order to ignite a flame. One of the main ways that they are used is for plumbing when a pipe has a leak. Miniature versions of this torch are used for:
This is usually a circular type of box that is used to store hot or heated electrodes after a welding project. The oven will keep the electrodes from causing any possible fire hazards and cool them down at the same time. It can come in a variety of sizes depending on how much space you need.
This is a hand tool used for soldering items together. These irons heat up and mold materials. They are made with a metal tip and an insulated handle to prevent burning. Soldering can be used for a variety of applications including:
