Welding is frequently thought of as an intimidating trade. But choosing the right welding power source can be equally intimidating and overwhelming. Whether you’re new to welding or want to upgrade your machine, it can be difficult to know what to look for.
For those new to welding, have little experience, or do it only part time, it’s important to understand how you intend to use the power source. What is the average thickness of the material you’ll be welding? Will you be working indoors, outdoors, or a combination of both? Will you need a power source dedicated to one welding process or do you need a multi-process machine? Taking a realistic look at what you intend to do with the machine will help you find one that fits your needs and avoid overspending for capabilities that you don’t need.
