A MIG welder is a staple at most welding shops, as it is here at Dwyer Manufacturing.
Here’s a brief history of MIG welding:
Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding is a welding process in which an electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece metal(s), which heats the workpiece metal(s), causing them to melt and join.
Along with the wire electrode, a shielding gas feeds through the welding gun, which shields the process from contaminants in the air.
Originally developed for welding aluminum and other non-ferrous materials in the 1940s, MIG welding was soon applied to steels because it provided faster welding time compared to other welding processes. The cost of inert gas limited its use in steels until several years later, when the use of semi-inert gases such as carbon dioxide became common. Further developments during the 1950s and 1960s gave the process more versatility and as a result, it became a highly used industrial process. Today, MIG is the most common industrial welding process, preferred for its versatility, speed and the relative ease of adapting the process to robotic automation. Unlike welding processes that do not employ a shielding gas, such as shielded metal arc welding, it is rarely used outdoors or in other areas of air volatility.
Most of us have seen a welder operate, but have you seen it in super slow motion?

The farm can be a harsh place on mild steel. Nuts, bolts and threaded rod all rust and seize over time making simple repairs and adjustments a big headache.
When you invest in stainless steel motor mounting parts, your adjustments and repairs will be much easier down the road.
Here are a few different arrangements Dwyer Mfg has in stock to mount an electric motor.
Custom applications are no problem, we can build exactly what you need.
Here’s a couple videos with handy ways to deal with that rusted nut and bolt.
this first one uses standard heat and quick cool to break the rust free.
Note how an old shovel is used to protect equipment close by.
Another technique is a drill out tool. Here’s how that works.
Screw House Numbers is A fun DIY project that will give your home a unique touch.
Get instructions on how to make this simple project here: http://www.instructables.com/…/Modern-Industrial-House-Num…
The numbers can be any size you want. Use long or short screws, flat or pan head, depending on what type of look you want.
Put shorts screws in all the way for a clean flush look or use longer screws for a 3D feel.
Only use stainless screws, or your project will be rusty in no time.
Frame the numbers in and put a unique touch on it with fake grass or brick as a background.
Dwyer Mfg has a large inventory of stainless wood screws in bulk to get it done. Sizes range from # 6 to # 12 diameter and from 1/2″ to 3″ long.
I’d recommend using #10 flat head screws 2 1/2″ long. drive the screws in 1/2″ to get a nice 2″ tall number.
This is a simple font you can use.

Crop the numbers you need out of the image
Print or trace the numbers onto grid / graph paper
Map out screw placement and count how many screws you need. Make sure you space the screws properly so they don’t over crowd or leave gaps.
A 6″ tall X 3″ wide # 2 (as shown on the left) will use about 90 screws

It’s common place, in almost every pig barn, a new door entrance set is carefully installed and used day in a day out. But soon enough the ammonia in the barn will start rusting that latch you use every day. Eventually it’ll become sharp enough to cut hands and start to malfunction which means more time spent installing another latch.
A Stainless Steel door latch and hinge set from Dwyer Mfg. removes the chore of replacing latches and hinges on a regular basis in a corrosive environment.
The twist lock version on the left is available for $49.30 and the Rod Latch (including hinges not shown) is selling for $34.90 until the end of May 2016.
Your time is valuable, do the job right the first time and enjoy it every day.
Often when your replacing the hinges or latches you find the screws have pulled out of the wall and/or the whole is too big to hold the replacement screw. Take a look at this DIY video on how to solve that problem with a golf tee. Click here.
