Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing A Welding Stud Gun

A portable welding stud gun is a piece of equipment that is invaluable. It allows for easy welding in virtually any location where you have access to a power supply. There are many different models and options on the market and taking the time to compare and consider your options is time well spent before making the investment.

Buying Unknown Brands

There are a lot of tools and equipment available, particularly through online sales, that are not made in the United States or are not distributed in the United States by brick and mortar businesses.

This is a risky proposition at best. If there is a problem with the welding stud gun or if it fails to perform to advertised levels, it can be impossible to get repairs or to send the equipment back. In most cases, it is a buyer beware transaction at best.

Buying from a company that is known has experience and has a reputation for providing top quality equipment eliminates these risks. If the company is in the United States, just do your research about their equipment and supplies and make an informed purchase.

Not Considering Setup and Maintenance

Take the time to read through the manuals and information provided by the manufacturer for the setup, maintenance, and operation of the welding stud gun. Look for systems that are easy to setup, easy to configure for different jobs and applications, and that have the safety features in place to not only protect the equipment but to also protect the operator.

Maintenance of the stud gun should also be limited. Generally, maintenance will include keeping the equipment free from dirt, which just means wiping down the exterior surfaces of the stud gun and then having the weld tool serviced on the basis that is consistent with use.
