emergency welding

Recommended Posts

I have done it. It is even possible to use a plain wire coat hanger for a welding rod.

Now I said it works....I didn't say it works very well!


One caution- You still need to protect your eyes- I had some medium bad retina burns when I was done- I thought I was careful, but it wasn't careful enough.

Now I know this may sound strange BUT that's your problem LOL


a large clear glass jug acts like a magnifying glass if it is close to 12 inches it can be used as

eye protection as 12 inches of plain water protects eyes against thermal radiation.


you can weld under water with D.C. so battery welding under water will give you


40& of strength and 60% ductility or viceversa it has only been 25 years


so get off my azz..LOL

Yes it will work, it's not pretty and can be brittle so it would depend on what your welding.


But if your prepping and believe you might need to do some welding you should probably have a oxygen/ acetylene torch set up, and a diesel powered welder will also serve as a great backup generator. I do a lot of gas welding and use nothing but clothes hangers or good old fashion bailing wire.


Don't know if anyone has mentioned this before but you can use propane instead of acetylene but you will need propane tips for both your cutting and welding heads. Talk to your local welding supply and they can point you in the right direction for the equipment you already have. Remember, it's probably going to be a lot easier to stockpile propane than acetylene. As for the oxygen, it wouldn't hurt anyone to stock up on some oxygen tanks because what goes inside is the same stuff they serve at hospitals. Great for curing headache's and hangovers as well as other medical purposes.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
