Making welding steel, cast iron, stainless steel and more a snap with an arc welder. An arc welder creates an electrical current through an electrode to melt the metal to form a weld between two work pieces. Some models produce an alternating current (AC) or direct (DC) current according to the specific application. Some arc welders can be plugged into a standard 120V household style outlet for convenience.
