If you weld pipe, you’ll love the new Modular Tube & Pipe Notcher (SHT-ATN100). Complete your 1st notch with a drill press, then use the BuildPro® Notcher to align angles & control the length of the 2nd notch accurately & easily. Position the two soft-facing V-Blocks and clamp as needed.

  • Cutter centerline is height adjustable
  • Adjust cutting angle up to 90º
  • Works with 1/2″ Drill

The popular Multitool 2×36 belt grinding attachment is available mated to a 1 hp grinder. More than a traditional belt sander, this versatile tool has a belt speed of approximately 5,400 surface feet per minute which allows for material removal up to 5 times faster, along with 5 grinding areas in one machine. The unit also offers platen grinding, slack-belt grinding, disc grinding, and stone wheel grinding!

Since TIG welding his first Class 8 chassis in 1983, Robbie Pierce was hooked on Motorsports (and making the vehicles safer). This month, he’s acquired Jimco Racing, and says, “Taking over the reins at Jimco Racing just feels like coming home.” He says that this move fits his passion and expertise.
Pierce is an active off-road racer who drives in desert racing’s premiere Trophy-Truck category. Jimco is located in the heart of off-road racing’s “Gasoline Alley” just a short drive from downtown San Diego. A true American success story, Jimco was born out of passion and enthusiasm; eventually seeing its talented craftsmen build and develop more than 500 race cars, trucks and UTVs and hundreds of victories and championships around the world.


The folks @world_of_engineering re-posted this video from@ryancj55… and we couldn’t help but share it with y’all. The only thing missing are tunes & some of Ryan’s famous BBQ to help pass the afternoon as he seals up that pipe. Here’s to deploying tools that save you time, let you take a load off, and help you build it bigger & better. Spring flowers & the smell of smoked meats are in the air… Enjoy!


In 1996, Aaron Biefer (@bulldog_welding) started as a CAD designer in the automotive industry, and later moved to welding engineer. He began welding ~20 years ago to keep his old car on the road. From the very 1st arc with that ol’ Lincoln buzz box, he was hooked. Fast forward to today, he & Kelsey (his Rock ⭐) are engaged and live in an old farm house with Owen & Ben, their two English Bulldogs. The Bulldog Welding “world headquarters” is located in a barn on the property. Aaron, like most of us, has learned a ton from his mistakes as well as from Jody’s Tips and Tricks videos. He attributes his artistic flare for metal sculpture to his mom, an art teacher. Aaron now tackles everything from architectural to heavy equipment repair, and says that he’s driven to become better with every project. We salute Aaron and welders everywhere who pursue their passion each day that they strike that arc.
