Premium Stick Electrode Holders for Every Application & Budget
Choose from traditional Spring / Tong style stick electrode holders, with spring-loaded gripping jaws. ShortStub and Twister style heavy-duty models mechanically hold the stick electrode tight for easy bending and better arc control. The fully insulated heads are designed to eliminate arc out problems associated with Spring / Tong style stick holders with exposed electrode gripping pads.
Stick Welding (SMAW or Shielded Metal Arc) is a process which melts and joins metal by heating them with an arc between a covered electrode and the workpiece. Shielding gas comes from the electrode's outer coating, also known as flux.
