Equipment Every Welder Needs

10 April 2018


Aside from a basic welder for rent, there is a lot of other equipment that a welding expert will require in order to get the job done right. We take a look at some of these essentials below.


  • Safety Gear

    Safety should always come first when it comes to completing any welding job. It doesn’t matter if you’re an old hand or a beginner, things like goggles, welding gloves and an auto dimming welding helmet are all extremely important.

  • Welding Table

    A good quality, sturdy welding table is necessary for any welding job. For added convenience, consider a portable model.

  • Angle Grinder

    An angle grinder makes it possible for you to perform a wide variety of welding jobs, especially if you are able to change the discs. You’ll be able to cut metal to size, clean weld joints and more.

  • Clamps

    Without the right welding clamps, you will struggle to set your work piece up firmly while welding it together. This can result in shoddy workmanship or, in the worst case scenario, even injury.

  • Measuring Tools

    You’ll need a variety of measuring tools when preparing a weld joint, such as callipers and metal T-squares to name a few.

  • A Hammer and Dolly Kit

    These essentials will come in handy for many different types of jobs, including welding. They’re great for setting up a work piece for welding.
