THE BEST Welding

Making a Viking Axe from Washers

Making a Viking Axe from Washers

As we’ve seen before, it’s possible to make a weapon out of melted washers. But Hassan Abu-Izmero was challenged by a friend to build a viking axe by welding the washers together, rather than melting them down and forging them. The resulting axe looks super cool, and actually works thanks to its razor-sharp cutting edge.

Robots Make an SUV Frame

Robots Make an SUV Frame

While humans are still very much a part of assembling vehicles, robots are often used for the heavy lifting and dangerous tasks like painting and welding. Watch in awe as an army of 45 KUKA robots work in harmony at MAGNA Presstec to create frames for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV.

Magnets are extremely useful for welding steel, as they can be used to hold pieces securely together without clamps. Strong Hand Tools magnets are unique thanks to their double-jointed design, which allows them to hold round, flat, or square metal parts at any angle, and in a snap.

Learning to weld can be a daunting task. But with this slick bit of technology from Miller Welders, students can practice using an augmented reality welding headset which lets them practice all they need, and get detailed feedback on their progress.

Making a Lamp from Nuts

Making a Lamp from Nuts

Looking for a project to put basic welding skills to use? Check out this DIY idea from Ollari’s – a lamp with a shade made by welding a bunch of steel nuts around a curved form, and a base made out of the same. It’s a cool enough design that we’ll forgive his spelling of “baking soda.”

GoldPointProps walks us through the process of creating an incredible replica of the Dark Lord’s infamous head gear using sheet metal, bending tools, tin snips, an arc welder, a Dremel, and a heaping helping of elbow grease.

Arc Welding in Slow Motion

Arc Welding in Slow Motion

Most video footage you see of welding just looks like a blinding light and some sparks. mrbean022387 added an appropriate soundtrack to Vurt Runner’s super-macro footage of gas metal arc welding as a tiny pool of molten metal burbles and coalesces.

Friction Welding in Slow-Mo

Friction Welding in Slow-Mo

While much welding is done by adding molten hot metals with a torch or electrical current, friction welding creates strong joints by rubbing metal together at a high speed. Here, two blocks of titanium are merged into one. If you thought that was cool, check this out.

3D Printed Steel Bike

3D Printed Steel Bike

Students at the Netherlands’ Delft University of Technology and 3D printing company MX3D programmed a welding robot to “print” the cage structure of this awesome and unique bicycle frame. We love the open and organic design, though it’s probably still quite heavy.
