A welder is a machine that makes welds on metals. Welding is the optimal method of attaching two different metal objects together with safety and efficiency.
Welding is used for many different things. It is essentially blending two metals together using extreme heat; this process can help with the making of cars, metal posts, frames and many other metal items. It is a lot safer and more practical than using nails, as nails are not strong enough to hold metal together, especially on cars which need to be incredibly safe.
Everlast is a Canadian company that specializes in well-made, fully protected welding equipment. They take extreme pride in their appearance and in differentiating their brand of welder from the norm. They say that Everlast welders suit both the people who weld as a hobby and those welders who make a living out of it. Their welders each come with a three year warranty on top of that, to assure you that these products are top notch.
The Everlast site has many helpful tutorials on how to use their welders professionally and safely and they can be very useful if you are only starting out in the business and are having trouble adjusting. Their website link is here à http://www.everlastwelders.ca/
Types of Everlast Welder
Everlast Arc Welder
In arc welding, the two metal objects are conjoined using an electrical current. The electrical current can produce the heat needed for the welding process. The electric current used must be an AC/DC one.
This process is used in mining and fossil fuel extraction. There are four different types to this kind of welding – shielded metal welding, gas metal arc welding, submerged arc welding and flux cored arc welding. Each of these methods is used to weld something different, but Everlast arc welders can cover them all.
They have the PowerArc 160 and the PowerArc 200. The latter is more powerful than the former, which seems to be the only difference between the two. They can both be used for the four different types of arc welding.
Everlast TIG Welder
TIG welding stands for Tungsten Invert Gas welding and is usually used for welding smaller or thinner pieces of metal, such as stainless steel.
To use a TIG welder, you must have the settings placed to DCEN and you need shielding gas to protect some parts from contamination. You must also have water cooled or air cooled torches for your TIG welder. If you are starting out and are only making small scale items, you may want to try this Everlast TIG welder first, to give it a shot before you go bigger and more powerful.

Everlast in Retail Stores
Almost all hardware stores in Canada sell Everlast products. But if you live in the United States or even in Europe, there are still many ways you can get your hands on some of their fine welding equipment.
If you live in the United States, there are dealers dotted all over the country who deal in Everlast Arc and TIG welders. And you aren’t limited to buying them online; a lot of the larger hardware stores in the US carry these welders. Everlast’s website has a handy store locator, which shows you what stores in your location, or nearby, carry their products.
The link to that part of the site is here à http://www.everlastgenerators.com/dealer-locator.php
If you live outside the North American continent though, it is not that common to find Everlast welders in your local store. For you, your best bet would to be searching online at such websites as ebay or amazon.com, because Everlast welders can often be found on these sites, often unused.
The links to these two sites are here à http://www.ebay.com/
That means that wherever you live, be it Canada, Australia or France, Everlast welders can be had. Merely walk into your local hardware store or, if they’re not available there, you can always go online.
Although they are considered to be the best in their field, Everlast welders are not the only welders available on the market. Two of their main competitors are Longevity Inc and Miller Electric; both of these companies also manufacture and market arc and TIG welders.
Longevity Inc’s has a variety of TIG welders available on their website, varying in price ranges from $2179.99 to $399.99. Longevity’s welders are marketed as being ‘cheap and reliable’ with their TIG welders being ideal for aluminum welding. There is some controversy surrounding Longevity’s welders, as there have been some legitimacy issues stemming between these and Everlast welders.
Where Miller welders do not seem to have the same problems with accusations of plagiarism, there is still plenty of competition between Miller and Everlast welders. Miller Electric produces several types of welders as well, to include arc and TIG welders, among others. Miller, like Everlast, not only sells welders, but a wide range of welding accessories and personal protective equipment, to ensure the safety of the welder while operating this equipment.
Whatever your welding needs, be they aluminum, steel or otherwise; whether you need an arc welder or a TIG, MIG or plasma cutter, you can find anything you’ll need for all of your welding projects at Everlast. Everlast welders are safe, reliable and backed by a 3 year guarantee.
