Eastwood Arc Welders
When torch welding is the best option for metal work, you can get the right equipment for less by shopping at Eastwood. Shielded metal arc welding, or stick welding, is often considered the most basic form of welding. But don’t confuse “basic” with meaning that you can use just any old stick welder on your project car. You still need a good arc welder in order to form a strong bond between metals. Find the right arc welder for sale at Eastwood that will create great welds on steel and iron, particularly with tubular steel structures such as roll bars.
Why torch weld instead of MIG or TIG unit?
MIG and TIG welding have their uses, but you just can’t beat torch welding for portability. Getting a small MIG Welder out to the field for a repair may not be hard, but without electricity it’s useless. Another advantage of oxy-acetylene torch welding is that the weld is softer, so it is less brittle in application where strength is an issue, as well as more easily drilled, tapped and machined.

Compact Stick Welder Units
The experienced fabricators in R&D have created multiple arc welders for different applications. Our standard ARC 80 Stick Welder is a lightweight unit that is effective for thin steel and stainless steel. For additional power, get the ARC200i Welder and its 200-amp max output. These inverter units are valued for their portability as all can easily be toted along for unexpected projects. Each one has a three-year manufacturer’s warranty and our 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee. If you prefer a stick welder that uses AC current, order the Lincoln Electric LEW K1170 that can operate at anywhere from 40 to 225 amps.
