In this video, Jordan Smith discusses the basic tools you will need in order to work safely with steel. Moving from the most basic of all, welder gloves, clear face shield and welding helmet, Smith moves quickly into the types of sanders, saws, grinders and disks that can effectively and efficiently be used.Smith also moves through clamps, strong hand tools and Adjusto squares specifically addressing the challenges of steel as a medium. Finally, what do you need in a welder? Smith discusses the Lincoln Mig Welder and the Miller Tig Welder, even discussing what you should expect to pay.
