Welding Jackets (Free Shipping)

Basic welding safety calls for long sleeve cotton shirts since cotton won’t
catch fire like synthetic materials when a spark lands on them. In order to
practice better safety for both yourself and your shirts, consider picking up a
welding jacket on sale at Baker’s this week. You’ll be able to
stay warm without ruining one of your existing jackets. In addition, welding
jackets protect your arms and neck, the two places most likely to catch sparks
while you’re welding. Don’t underestimate the importance of the neck protection
that a welding jacket can provide!

In addition, welding jackets at Baker’s come in a variety of materials. For
colder climates, top grain leather jackets will be ideal for welders. In a
warmer climate a lighter flame retardant jacket will be lighter and safer than
anything else in your closet. Other safety items include welding bibs, welding
sleeves, and welding aprons—each are ideal for warmer climates or just welding
in a shop all day without something bulky like a jacket.

Welding Gloves

There’s never a bad time to pick up a nice pair of gloves for
either welding or for projects in your shop. Depending on the kind of work you
do, every welder needs at least two pairs of gloves. One pair for welding and
one pair, typically a less expensive pair, for any projects around the shop that
don’t involve welding. For example, if you’re cutting some metal for a welding
project, wear your work gloves rather than taking the risk of puncturing your
high quality TIG gloves on the edge of the metal before you grind it down. If
you have one of the newer 3 in 1 welders, you should also invest in a pair of
gloves for each welding process since TIG gloves provide more dexterity for
feeding filler metal but are too thin for the heat created during stick welding
and MIG welding.

Welding Helmets (Free Shipping)

Baker’s provides a wide variety of welding helmets for new welders, experienced welders, and
professional welders. If you’re just starting out with welding and don’t expect
to be working in too many tight or “out of position” locations, a basic
auto-darkening helmet with two sensors will get you started just fine. However,
the top welding helmets, typically priced between $200-$300, will provide some
fantastic features such as more sensors for out of position welds, a larger
viewing area, a lighter weight, and additional shade and grinding options.

Grind mode is especially convenient if you plan to work on a number of
lengthy projects that require grinding and welding repeatedly. You can just flip
in between shades while you work instead of switching from helmet to goggles
repeatedly.

Welding Packages (Thermal Arc – Free Shipping)

The Thermal Arc welding packages are a great option for new
welders who don’t have all of the welding supplies necessary to get
started—especially those who don’t know what exactly they’ll need in order to
weld. Thermal Arc makes a 3-in1 welder, and every other kind of welder: MIG,
TIG, and Stick, selling each with a package setup option that ensures you have
the right torch, cables, regulators, electrodes, and a carrying case.

Welding Gear Bags (Free Shipping)

If you have to travel to a shop to do your welding or if you haul welding
gear to work every day, Baker’s is also offering free shipping and discounts on
a variety of welding gear bags. From backpacks to simple draw string bags
to tool bags, there are plenty of different sizes and shapes to choose from.
