Welding, soldering and brazing can be used to tackle everything from wood working, plumbing and electrical work to DIY repair, crafting and jewelry projectsTypes of Soldering & Flux
From welding machines, welding supplies and welding safety apparel to soldering guns, soldering flux, rods and irons, we’re your one-stop shop for all things welding and soldering.
Welding Machines for Pros & DIYers
Whether you have years of welding experience or you’re just getting started, we have options to help you complete your welding project. The most popular welding tools are MIG welders, TIG welders and stick welders. MIG welders are commonly used in automotive repair, plumbing and construction. MIG stands for metal inert gas. TIG welders are popular with pros because they can weld a wide variety of metals. TIG stands for tungsten inert gas. DIYers commonly use stick welders because they are convenient and do not require shielding gas.
Brazing & Soldering Tools
Like welding, soldering and brazing are both used to bond metal surfaces together, but soldering typically uses a lower temperature than welding. Solder is a metal alloy comprised of different elements. Brazing requires its own special material and higher temperatures than soldering. In general, soldering takes place at temperatures below 840 F while brazing occurs at higher temperatures. Brazing is used when high joint strength is required. Hard solder, which is used for brazing, melts at higher temperatures and is available in various degrees of hardness. There are several tools to consider when it comes to completing your brazing and soldering project. Depending on the job, you may need a soldering gun or soldering iron, flux or torches and tanks.
Be Safe & Secure
Last but not least, you’ll want to make sure you are safe when welding, brazing or soldering. We have lots of welding equipment, including welding work wear, welding gloves and some pretty cool welding helmets to keep you secure.
