Agricultural Mechanics

Career Development Event

Welding and Metal Working

Abrasive Cut-Off Saw

  • Abrasive saw blade material is used to cut metal.

Acetylene Regulator

  • Used to reduce the high acetylene cylinder pressure to a workable constant prssure. Hose and cylinder connections are left handed threads.

Brazing Rod

  • Used as a filler rod when braze welding. May or may not be flux coated.

Copper Coated Mild Steel Welding Rod

  • Used as a filler rod for mild steel oxy-fuel welding. The copper coating prevents rusting

Cutting Torch Tip

  • Used with a cutting torch handle when oxy-fuel cutting. The tip size is determined by the thickness of the metal.

Cutting Torch

  • Used with the cutting tip when oxy fuel cutting steel.


  • A coated metal wire used for shielded metal-arc welding a variety of metals.

Electrode Holder

  • Used to mechanically hold the electrode while conducting current from the electrode lead.

Flashback Arrestor

  • Used to limit damage from a flashback by allowing the gases to flow in only one direction, preventing the flame from burning back into the equipment.

Friction Lighter

  • Used to light torch’s for cutting and welding. Safer than using matches or a lighter.

Ground Clamp

  • Used to connect the ground lead (cable) to the work. This provides a completed electrical circuit.

Inert Gas Regulator

  • Regulates shielding gases such as argon, helium and carbon dioxide. Used for MIG and TIG welding.

Leather Gloves

  • Used to protect the hands from the ultraviolet rays and spatter of hot metal.

MIG Tips

  • MIG tips guide the welding wire through the gun nozzle.

MIG Welding Gun

  • Used to deliver the wire and shielding gas to the weld surface.

MIG Wire

  • Used as filler wire for the MIG welding process. May be bare wire or flux cored.

MIG Nozzle Gel

  • Coating applied to lubricate the welding wire and tip for smoother wire flow during the welding process and cut down on splatter.

Oxygen Regulator

  • Used to reduce the high oxygen cylinder pressure to a workable constant pressure. Hose and cylinder connections are right-handed threads.

Pipe Cutting Guide

  • A variety of different types of guides that clamp around pipe to aid in cutting angles etc. Pipe cutting guides are available in a variety of sizes.

Porcelain Gas Cup

  • Non-metallic cup that directs the flow of shielding gases when TIG welding.

Protective Leather, sleeves, apron or coat

  • Used to protect the body from harmful ultraviolet rays and hot molten spatter while welding.

Slag or Chipping Hammer

  • Used for slag removal from shielded electrode weld.

Tip Cleaner

  • Used to clean and partially recondition both welding and cutting tips.

Torch Handle

  • Used to mix fuel gasses and oxygen in the correct proportions.

Tungsten Electrode

  • Non-consumable electrode that generates the arc when TIG welding. Can be purchased in a variety of sizes.

Vise Grip Welding Clamp

  • With its flat and “U” shaped jaws, it is used to clamp metals quickly.

Welding/Cutting Goggles

  • Used to protect eyes from damaging light rays and heat rays that may prove destructive to eye tissue. Should not be used for arc welding.

Welding Helmet

  • Used to protect the eyes and face from the harmful arc rays and molten spatter produced when arc welding.

Welding Tip

  • Used for all types of oxy-fuel brazing and welding.

Wire Brush

  • Used to prepare metal for welding or cutting. Removes slag or rust . May be used to clean parts of machinery.
