Stick Welding

If you have just started learning about welding whether as a career or as a hobby it is natural to be confused about the different methods and by the technical jargon which is used to describe them, especially if you don’t have an engineering or a technical background. I remember the time when I was starting out and it was pretty intimidating.

That’s why I started writing this blog in the first place. If you are not a MIG guy then this section will be a good starting point for you to start learning and improving your stick welding skills.
