With your MIG gun you have a variety of welding nozzle designs to choose from, and sometimes the decision on which to choose is not always clear.
Welding contact tips are highly misunderstood components in a MIG gun setup. Choosing the correct contact tip for your welding application and understanding how to keep it performing at its best are just as critical as anything else needed to produce a quality weld.
When it comes time to replace your MIG gun, you may think it’s as simple as going to the store and buying the same one you’ve used in the past; but is that really the case? Besides the obvious; amperage, wire type, air-cooled or water-cooled, what should you be thinking about when buying a replacement MIG gun?
Every welding job generates fume or smoke that can be hazardous if inhaled. Whether you're welding mild or stainless steel, there is only one effective solution for maximum health protection....Extraction at source!!
