Best Answer

Stick welding machines are usually the least expensive machines available. Stick welding SMAW is used to fabricate steel and many other kinds of metals. A big variety of electrodes including cutting rods are available. This process is relatively easy to learn and use. From small farms to big industries to home workshops stick welding is the first choice from beginners to craftsmen.

What is stick welding?

Stick welding is a process in which a metal joint is fused together by the intense heat generated by an electrical arc. The "stick" in stick welding comes from the stick electrode that acts as the arc emitter and as a filler rod. It is used in various welding applications especially for heavy metal work. It is commonly used for this because of the ease of transmitting a powerful arc though the stick electrode.


Are heat resistant gloves good for welding?

Yes heat resistant gloves are a good idea for welding though very thick leather welding gloves are most commonly used and safest. Global Industrial is good.

What is Welding process?

There is no BEST process for all conditions/situations/materials/applications. Easiest to use would probably be GMAW (MIG welding). Most useful for all applications and metals including cutting OAW (Oxy-Acetylene welding) usually referred a to as Oxy-Fuel. Most widely used process is probably SMAW (stick welding) which would also be most portable and cheapest to purchase. GTAW (TIG/Heliarc) is used mostly indoors on thinner and or non ferrous metals ( Aluminum, Stainless Steel, and most alloys. If I were to set up a shop at home I would consider a DC stick welding machine (preferably a rectifier type) and an Oxy-Acetylene setup.
