First of all, it is essential to protect your eyes from the electric arc. Concerning this, we generally suggest an entry level electronic helmet that will cater for all types of welding processes such as MIG, TIG and the coated electrode. The electronic helmet is designed to protect our face from the electric arc. The field of vision is automatically darkened at the previously determined hue. This makes it easier to prepare to see our work by already having the helmet in front of you so that you are instantly ready when starting up.
As for the other essential parts of a welder, you will need this list:
- A good pair of gloves
- A flux hammer
- Tinted bezel
- Wire brush
- Angle magnet
- Chalk pencil
