Welding is a process that joins materials, usually metals and plastics. This is often done by melting the workpieces and adding a filler material to form a pool of molten material (the weld puddle) that colls to become a strong joint, with pressure sometimes used in conjunction with heat, or by itself, to produce the weld.

Arc welding uses a welding power supply to create an electric arc between an electrode and the base material to melt the metals at the welding point.

MIG welding is an electric arc welding process that uses a spool of continuously fed wire. It can be used to join long stretches of metal without stopping. View all welders


An air compressor increases the amount of air in a particular space. By packing in the air, the air pressure is increased which creates a force that is useful for a variety of purposes, such as in pneumatic tools like air powered nail guns, staplers, sanders, spray guns, or ratchet wrenches. Air compressors can also be used to move debris. View all compressors
