New Site Progress
The new focus of the website is going to be the store, forum and education.

I know one of the major drawbacks / complaints about the current site is that it is difficult to navigate and is about as mobile (UN)friendly as possible.

That being said, we are working hard to make the best possible site to speak to everyone's requests and feedback.

I will be continually updating this post with new information, but for now; here is a screenshot of our first home page mock-up.


Keep checking for updates and be sure to chime in with feedback and requests!]]>

100K Ultimate Fabricator Package GIVEAWAY
I have a quick announcement that I think everyone will be pretty excited about.

We are days away from hitting our 100,000 subscriber milestone on YouTube and it wouldn't have been possible without all of you watching, sharing and supporting our videos every week.

There is a ton of work that goes into [not only] creating the videos, but trying to answer all the questions in the comments section, and the fact that you guys invite us into your inbox each week makes it all worthwhile.

In order to celebrate and thank you all for the tremendous support, we are giving away the Ultimate Fabricator Upgrade Package. One of our subscribers will win:

Everlast Power MTS 251si
9/20 stubby gas lens kit
Steiner Krazy Kap beanie
ArcOne Fatboy sweatband and safety glasses
Westchester Fire-Resistant Cotton Welding jacket


All you have to do is add some gas and throw on your welding helmet and you have a first class, do-anything fab setup.

This giveaway is available worldwide as we try to create videos that reach a worldwide audience.

So, if you want to enter, here's the link: https://gleam.io/6589u/ultimate-fabricator-100k-giveaway

We're using Gleam to run the giveaway and generate the winner to keep everything fair.

All you have to do to enter is be subscribed to us on YouTube. If you're already subscribed, Gleam will verify that and you'll have nothing else to do, BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO CONFIRM VIA THE GLEAM LINK.

You can get bonus entries by following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, so be sure to follow us everywhere. The winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize before we choose another winner.

Other than that guys, there's really nothing else. Once again, we can't thank you enough for the support and keep feeding us requests!]]>

Butt weld of thin Anodized Aluminum these pieces are decorative sill covers over brick ledge.
not sure how t attack this.
Since the anodized coating in non-conductive, does this need to get ground off first?
will make it messy if not, in my experience.
Any suiggestions?]]>

New MIG Welding Video Series - #MIGMonday
The host / welder on the show is Paul Gramp. He is a 30+ year veteran of one of the largest welding companies in the world. His roles there included distributor training, teaching classes and going on site to large construction projects for training.

The series is going to be largely driven by this forum. We are going to try and take questions, discussions and projects here on the forum and do live arc demonstrations to better answer those questions. Here is a quick intro to the new series:

General Conduct in this Forum
If you have a problem with another member on the forum, you can PM me and I will deal with it. If we continue to get complaints, we will be forced to start a campaign that suspends members that have multiple complaints against them.

We are all adults here (I think). So lets act like it.]]>

New Demo Stock / Clearance Section in Store
Just wanted to make everyone aware that we just opened a new demo stock / sale item area on the store. Most of the equipment in this section is stuff we use in our videos. Much of the equipment / material we use in the videos do not come as free gifts, so we are using this to try and recoup some of the costs of doing the weekly videos.

If you see something used in a video, but do not see it in the demo stock area, shoot me a message and I will look into it for you. Sometimes it just hasn't been uploaded yet.

Here is the link:

Potential New Video Series...
Review welding and cutting machines, as well as cool gadgets / accessories.
Create an un-official "video manual" on how to use many different machines.

The goal of this channel would be to help newbies choose a machine that is good for them and then show them exactly how to set it up and use it. This channel would have a small monthly subscription fee that would go to acquiring machines to shoot.

Please respond to this discussion letting us know (1) Would you be willing to subscribe to something like this? and (2) What would you be willing to pay for this type of service?]]>

Weld.com Store Now Open Weld.com Store is now open and taking orders. We have made some changes that will make your shopping experience easier and more user friendly. We have changed some of the categories to make items easier to find, as well as added more products. We are still adding products every day, so if there is a particular machine or accessory you are looking for, please let us know. Another feature that is now live is the ability to use credit cards (not solely PayPal) so those of you without PayPal are encouraged to take a look at the store.

We are also about to introduce many existing TIG machines in our "Mr. TIG Approved" line of products. We like to use the analogy of the Carol Shelby Mustang vs. a stock Ford Mustang as how we are packaging these products. For those who aren't familiar, Shelby would take a Mustang and upgrade many of the parts he was "unhappy" with and this is the same concept we are using. In many of our TIG Time videos, Wyatt talks about how he likes a machine, but the accessories it comes with just don't get the job done. These new machines will come with upgraded accessories, including torches, regulator flow meters, gas lens kits and in some cases even foot pedals; not to mention a nice new paint scheme. We are working with various manufacturers to bring you guys these machines at the best possible price, while making a "starter machine" something that is going to last you much longer and provide better results!

Another nice feature is that when you buy from us, you will get expert customer service from people that know the machines AND how to diagnose welding problems...Not an endless amount of unanswered calls and emails that go unanswered.

Okay... So there's my sales pitch for today :D

Good day and happy welding!!! Keep posting those projects!]]>
