Gas welding acetylene bottle and regulator

     Gas welding is the foundation for all forms of welding. In this how-to, Gas Welding: Session One, our focus is equipment. The discussion includes equipment you will need for oxygen-acetylene welding, brazing and cutting.

Restored brake pedal using oxy-acetylene process

Glass beading and a gas welding repair restored this vintage brake pedal, adding a brace and strength at the backside. The metal was too oxidized for TIG, too perforated and fragile for MIG and too unpredictable for stick. Gas welding with ER70 filler provided the control and heat management that works!

     Once you have your equipment, move to the next sessions, the how-to steps involved with gas welding metals. We will also explore gas cutting and low-fuming bronze brazing, silver brazing (high tensile silver "soldering") and other techniques. Review the equipment HD video and get ready for the next session. Welcome to  gas welding!
