New! Welding Brushes
 
Welding BrushesLincoln Electric recently announced a full line of welding brushes.  Use them to clean the base material before you start to weld and between each pass.
 
Since it's important to use the right brush on each base material, there is a specific brush type for use on carbon steel, a different one for stainless steel and a third type for aluminum.  Each is offered in a variety of popular sizes and a combination pack is also available.

Have You Replaced Your Filters Lately?
 
FiltersRegularly replacing the filter in your Lincoln Electric weld fume control equipment is a good way to keep the unit working at peak performance and efficiency.  A new filter also:
  • Minimizes the amount of fume and particulate in the work environment
  • Maintains system design integrity
Now is a great time to replace those expired filters.  For a limited time, Lincoln Electric is offering a 10% discount on a number of filter replacement cartridges.

How I Did It Project: Snow Plow Attachment
 
Snow Plow Attachment 1 (click to view larger image) Snow Plow Attachment 2 (click to view larger image)
John Betka of the Up Sky Ranch in Butte, Montana fabricated this snow plow attachment for a John Deere 2320 Tractor.  He used several Lincoln Electric products for the project -- AC225 and Idealarc® 250 stick welders along with Lincoln E6013 stick electrodes.
 
The plow is 6-1/2 feet wide and 27 inches tall.  It pivots left and right, tilts forward and back, and lifts up and down.
 
The project took John less than a week to complete and he spent under $500 for all the materials.
 
The above project images and descriptions have been published to show how individuals used their ingenuity for their own needs, convenience and enjoyment. Only limited details are available and the projects have NOT been engineered by the Lincoln Electric Company. Therefore, when you use the ideas for projects of your own, you must develop your own details and plans and the safety and performance of your work is your responsibility.
