A Look At The Best Welding Magnets

Welding Magnates are great tools for helping to accurately complete your welding projects without always having someone help hold your material in place. When deciding on which magnets are best for your projects always make sure to purchase the correct size and avoid the frustration of the magnet not being capable of holding your material in place.

A common mistake that a lot of beginning welders make when welding with magnets is to weld to close to the magnet over heating it and possibly rendering it ineffective or compromising its holding strength. Tack or weld far enough away to avoid this type of damage to the magnet.
