The holidays are arriving soon and, like most of us, you’re probably scrambling to find the perfect gift for the welder in your life. With so many parts, accessories and apparel to choose from, it can become a little overwhelming. But don’t worry because we’ve compiled a list of the unique, efficient, beneficial, and innovative products any welder would want.
Give the Gift of Welding Gear
Everybody knows welding can be dangerous. With sparks, gas and fumes, and the inevitable flashburn, it’s important to wear the proper welding gear. And if you ask any welder, they’re always interested in a fresh pair of gloves or jacket that hasn’t been burnt through yet.
Welding Jacket $26.65-$93.55
One of the first pieces of personal protective equipment a welder needs is a welding jacket. The fabric is flame resistant and can stand environments with extremely high temperatures.
Kevlar Welding Sleeves $18.90
Welding sleeves provide additional protection because they cover any skin that may be exposed between a jacket and gloves. These sleeves are made out of kevlar material to provide ultimate protection against flames, sparks and sharp objects.
Half Mask Respirator $29.75
This respirator will protect your welder’s lungs, all while fitting easily underneath the helmet without blocking the field of vision. It comes in a variety of sizes to fit all faces and heads.
Auto-Darkening Welding Helmet $77.96-$407.55
An auto-darkening helmet is a huge advantage to any welder. It adds convenience and comfort to not constantly flip the lens ups and down.
What good would all this new gear be without a new bag to store it in?!
Welding Gear Bag $83.55
This welding bag and backpack fits everything a welder could possibly need! There is room for a helmet, tools, lunchbox, gloves and more, making it the best welding bag out there.

When they need to see their welds a little bit better, the glass magnifier/cheater lens is the best option. The strength starts at 0.75 and goes all the way up to 3.50. The lens is an industry standard size that will fit most manufacturers welding helmets.
Custom Anodized Sharpie Tungsten Grinder $395-$445
The Sharpie Tungsten Grinder is one of our most popular tools. It grinds tungsten electrodes quickly and accurately with a clean diamond ground finish. For high quality welds with deeper penetration, less contamination and reduced tungsten waste, the Sharpie grinder is just what your welder needs. This specific edition is cordless with an industrial grade battery which is great for efficiency around any shop. And the best part is, they are customizable so your welder will get their hands on something that no one else has.
Another customizable option for the welder that likes to stand out is the Rod Guard. These handy storage containers keep rods and filler materials airtight and your workspace organized. There are a variety of colors available, too, to coordinate with the rod type. You can also fit different types of Rod in each container with dividers and ID caps.
Our latest innovation in storage solutions is the ever popular Arc Saber, also known as the Tung-Taner. We offer it in two different sizes; standard electrode length and stubby. It features a magnetic bottom, thread-on cap with an o-ring seal, a wood strip to minimize atmosphere and moisture contamination, and lastly a handy sticker on the cap with a quick reference guide to tungsten tapers.
If you’re going to get your welder a tungsten storage container, you may as well get them some tungsten to store in it. This hybrid tungsten is a non-thoriated blend engineered by Arc-Zone to be non-radioactive, and non-carcinogenic. It improves weld quality and offers superior arc stability as well as current continuity.
