Safety equipment is essential. It protects you from harm and makes turning a smoother operation. Without the following equipment, you risk injury. PROTECTIVE CLOTHING Always wear sturdy shoes when turning to provide protection against dropped tools or workpieces. Faceplate turners should wear safety shoes. EYE PROTECTION Some sort of eye protection is essential when operating a lathe. The minimum is a pair of shatterproof eyeglasses, preferably with side shields. For some types of work, such as turning wood with bark still on it or exceptionally splintery material, a full-face shield should be worn. By law all prescription glasses sold in…

Oxy-Acetylene High Pressure System

Oxyacetylene welding is a fusion-welding process. The coalescence of metals is produced by an oxygen-acetylene flame; Extreme heat is concentrated on the edges or on the edge and surface of the piece of metal being joined until the molten metal flows together. The type of joint design determines whether a filler metal should be used to complete the weldment or not. Filler metal is added by inserting it into the molten puddle of the base metals. The puddle then solidifies, after cooling making the weld bead. The extremely high heat depends on the mixture of two types of gaseous substances,…
