The Metal Mashup: May Vol.1 2020

Good reads, amp control in the palm of your hands & generations of creativity!

ARE YOU AN AMBIDEXTROUS WELDER?

Whether you weld with your right or left hand (or maybe even both), these Velcro Strap-On Rotary Amp Controls can conveniently be configured to both. Plus, they attach effortlessly with velcro straps so it’s a win-win! Easy to put on, easy to use, and they’re low-profile enough that it’s like they’re not even there. Freely control your amperage with a comfortable grip!

ROLL YOUR UP SLEEVES

Safety is the number one priority when it comes to welding but what happens when it just gets way too hot and you don’t feel like wearing your jacket?! Getting a third-degree sunburn is not an option but an easy to wear pair of welding sleeves sure are! Made with grain pigskin and breathable cotton, the sleeves are light but durable. They’re easy to pull on and feature an elastic band for the perfect fit. When it comes to light welding or hotter weather, these welding sleeves are a great alternative to bulky coverage.

#WELDLIKEAPRO

Metal artist, John Lopez crafts life-size, realistic, works of art using discarded farm equipment. You might recognize his latest piece, a depiction of the historic battle between a behemoth bear and Hugh Glass, a truly terrifying scene from The Revenant, which might be more famous for winning Leonardo DiCaprio his first academy award. Lopez’s incredible artwork can be seen in his South Dakota gallery, the Kokomo Inn where he showcases everything from cast iron bisons, horses, and presidents, among other found objects.
