Welding brushes
Welding brushes from Lincoln Electric allow you 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.

Aluminum welding application
SuperGlaze® 5356 TM™ is an engineered aluminum alloy GMAW wire designed specifically for applications in the trailer manufacturing industry. The engineered alloy system provides optimal puddle clarity and arc action, as well as excellent wetting for both semi-automatic and automatic applications.
This aluminum GMAW wire offers excellent performance on high-speed groove welds in formed truck panel applications, as well as robotic fillet welds on trailer tanks, requiring minimal post-weld clean up.

New Process for Welding Aluminum Underwater
 
Underwater aluminum gas-metal-arc welding in a hyperbaric chamber. Aluminum vessels are making their way into the U.S. Navy fleet.  While repairs to steel-hulled ships on the water are nothing new, working with aluminum presents far greater challenges.  Wouldn't dry-docking ease the aluminum-welding process?  Yes, it would, but with global reach, U.S. Navy ships can be at nearly any point on earth, and dry-docks are rarely near.
 
In addition, the dry-docking process plays havoc with the Navy's intricate deployment scheduling and dry-docking is much more expensive than keeping the ship in the water when performing maintenance and repair.
 
With dry-docking currently as the only option for weld repair of aluminum-hulled ships, the Navy is searching for new solutions.  It may have found one with a promising new technique: underwater aluminum gas-metal-arc-welding (GMAW) in a hyperbaric chamber.

Tech Tip: Adjusting VIKING™ Helmets for Bifocals
 
Adjusting VIKING™ Helmets for bifocalsVIKING™ Welding Helmets are cheater lens capable; however, sometimes you want to be able to use your own bifocals while you weld for a better view.
 
Dennis Klingman demonstrates how the larger lens and adjustable headgear on VIKING™ 3350 series helmets allow you to do this.

How I Did It Project: Shark Sculpture
 
Shark (click to view larger image)Stuart Peterman made this five foot long shark sculpture from hand-hammered stainless steel.  All welding was done with his trusty Lincoln Electric SP-135 Plus wire feeder welder (current model is POWER MIG® 140C).
 
The shark sculpture was displayed at the Museum of Art - Fort Lauderdale, in their "SHARK" exhibition.
 
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.
