Of course, there are hundreds
of different rod types designed for sticking two pieces of steel together. But there
are also other special rod types, than most people don't know about, that can be
particularly helpful to those of us doing repair, restoration, and/or fabrication
work out doors.
- You can braze without
the need for an oxyacetylene torch, hoses, regulators, or gas bottles.
- You can weld stainless
steel OR aluminum without the need for MIG and/or TIG equipment -- or shielding gas.
- You can reliably weld
dissimilar materials -- ferrous to nonferrous, special alloys to mild steel, etc.
- You can repair brass,
bronze, iron, and aluminum castings.
- You can even cut, gouge,
and bevel steel without the need for an oxyacetylene rig -- or a very expensive,
and very cumbersome, air-arc cutting rig!
You won't likely see
these types of speciality rods at your local welding supply store. But don't despair,
as a service to our customers, we make our own line of special function welding rods
which contains all of the rod types that we think that you'll find most useful in
We stock and sell these
rods packaged in convient to use 1/2 lb. or 1 lb. boxes through both our Online
(for call in orders) our parts department.
Other packaging options
are also available by special order. Just call and let us know what you need.
Don't confuse our high quality specialty rods with surplus industrial rods that you
will see from time to time on the internet. These industrial rods may require very
special handling for proper/acceptable results -- and they are often impossible to
use except when working indoors under special operating conditions.
For example, other stainless arc welding rods that we've seen for sale require complicated
preheating and curing processes and may even require the use of special temperature
control mechanisms and even shielding gas for proper results.
Our welding rods work
in the field -- we use them ourselves -- and, we guarantee your satisfaction!
