The Power supply
Whether you are using your equipment at home or your workshop, always ensure that there is adequate power supply. This is because your power supply determines the amount of heat produced by the welder. The power supply should be 110, 240 or 415 volts, with that kind of power you can be sure that your weld will produce sufficient and enough heat to melt the metal you are working on.
The material to be welded
When you want to buy a welder, ensure that you are specific on the type of material you need to weld. Although welders can perform many tasks, the type of material to be welded is very critical. Here are examples to guide you through; steel materials require welding machines that are mild and have low carbon, gold, require jeweller grades, copper materials require oxygen free welders etc.
The welding position
Welders come in different specifications, some work while laid on flat surfaces while others work at an angle or vertical positions, this is because different welding materials flow differently when heat is applied. Ensure that you get yourself a welder that works well for you. This will reduce accidents because you will know the appropriate way to hold your welder when working.
