Invest in Good Business Equipment: My Experience

When I started my cabinet production business, I was lucky enough to secure a good business loan, since my credit was stellar. Although I had the cash to purchase brand-new equipment or gently used items, I wanted to save by buying very old items. I was told they had a lot of life left in them, even though their low price seemed too good to be true. I learned my lesson when important pieces kept breaking down. I even had to stop production for several days to fix an important item. I learned a huge lesson that if the price of used production equipment sounds too good to be true, it likely is. I created this blog to remind other business owners that purchasing quality equipment may cost more money upfront, but it will save you money and a huge headache in the end. I hope I can help you.

Three Benefits Of A 3 O'clock Welder (It's Not What You Think!)

Unless you are a welder, you have probably never heard of a "3 o'clock welder." Do not feel bad; there are even welders who have not heard about this. It is a special welding cage that holds horizontal, cylindrical tanks for the purpose of welding the seams of these tanks. There are at least three benefits to using a 3 o'clock welder.

It Minimizes Mistakes

Welding has to be exact. Most of what welders meld together with their ARC torches has to be sealed perfectly and not have any mistakes in it. By placing these tank cylinders inside the welding cage of the 3 o'clock welder, the actual welder is able to maintain perfect stability of the tank as he/she torches the seams of the tank together.

It Reduces Leaks, Fires, and Deaths

That seems like quite a dangerous benefit, but it is a major benefit nonetheless. When the welder can seal the tanks perfectly, the tanks do not leak. No leaks means that no gas, no propane, no gasoline, and no other highly flammable materials can escape. When the flammable materials cannot escape, there are no fires and no explosions. No explosions and no fires mean no deaths or injuries. The welder accomplishes all of that with the use of the 3 o'clock welding cage.

The Cage Can Be Tilted at Different Angles to Help the Welder See His/Her Work

A welder has to see his or her work while in the midst of it. Sometimes the lighting is not always conducive to that, and horizontal tank welding is not simply something you can do by manually flipping the tank this direction or that. The cage on this device allows the welder to tip the cage up or down just enough to see better. The welder does not have to make a lot of physical effort to accomplish this either.

As a Welder, You Might Want to Buy This Device

There are single cage and double cage 3 o'clock welders. Either of these would certainly make your work as a welder a lot easier, especially if you spend a lot of time welding metal tanks together. If you work as a freelance welding contractor, consider buying one of these devices as a business investment. If you work for a company, try to convince your boss of the above benefits and see if he/she is willing to invest in one.
