  6. What did you do in the shop today?

    I use 309 alot on the exotic metals in my shop it saves on pre heat and post heat as long as its not a critical weld its also great on piston rams on backhoes and boats ,etc for repairs. I used it on the anvil and ram dies on my power hammer when i cut and welded the rail track to mild steel plates.
  7. What did you do in the shop today?

    The scalers are nice but we never get them on new construction last time i used one was 17 yrs ago at BW's boiler shop in Cambridge Ont.And when it comes to slag and xrays ya can never be to clean lol...
  8. What did you do in the shop today?

    I don't use the cups they are dangerous i use the wheel i don't like the handbrush when i'm doin xray work cause it don't clean the slag off as good as a wire wheel plus the wheel is faster.
  9. What did you do in the shop today?

    The best way to get rid of slag and alot of your splatter is to put a wire wheel on the angle grinder make sure ya got double eye protection glasses and a face sheild and if anybody is workin around ya put up a curtain incase some wire or slag shoots off.

  12. Tips for plasma cutter

    I use a standoff with a guide on mine and i think the drag tip has the guide built into it to maintain about a 1/8 gap from the material.Ask the guy sellin them he'd have the parts book there to tell ya the differance.The differance is prob price off the top of my head ,mine came with gouging tips as well.
