The Metal Mashup: December Vol.2 – 2018

Dec 2018: “GoodCheer” savings, Give Heat the Finger, Monsters comin’ down the chimney, and a Lost Fabricator


When Jack Skellington takes over Christmas, it’s a bit of a nightmare but don’t worry because our Monsters are here to save the holiday! The Arc-Zone Monster Nozzles are the perfect stocking stuffer, especially for welders in need of better gas coverage, increased weld consistency, arc stability, and visibility.


If you’re a TIG welder or you know someone who is, the TIG Finger is the ultimate necessity. The TIG finger is a patented sleeve made of super high-temperature insulation material that fits nicely over one or two fingers of your TIG Glove. It keeps you from ruining your gloves & your lil’ pinky, if you touch down while welding. Give the hot temperatures The Finger with the TIG Finger.

We all know the saying, “You break it. You buy it.” But in Stefan Werner aka @lostcoasting‘s case, he doesn’t buy it, he builds it. Using his Lincoln TIG 200, Stefan frequently refers to Google tutorials and YouTube How-tos to build things like a CertiFlat weld table and a turbo kit for his 2004 Subaru WRX STi. Gaining inspiration from his older brother Chris, Stefan enjoys learning new things and isn’t afraid to jump in, step out of his comfort zone, or break things. It’s all part of the learning process which takes time, effort, and a lot of trial and error. As a software developer, he doesn’t get the satisfaction of producing a visible or tangible product. Welding allows him to create, as he puts it, “ridiculously strong and aesthetically pleasing things that folks can put their eyes and hands on.” It’s just a hobby for Stefan at the moment but with his determination, ability to face challenges, and enthusiasm to inspire others, the sky’s the limit.
