Demonstration Of The Carbon Arc Torch




What do you think about this video?

dlt205: I found some projector rods but some are marked "positive" and others"negative". For twin carbon arc which do I use?

dlt205: Is their a special carbon rod for the torch or are these the same rods used for gouging? I have an old AC arc welder and noticed some gouging rods are marked DC. I assume I use AC rods only?

thangamajig: HEy,, How about using a carbon rod and a regular electrode holder and a acetylene torch head and compressed air from your compressor ?

vril ya: what when they thouch, does it short-circuit?

ferkemall: I used to use one in the 60/70s for brazing panels onto cars ,if you drill a hole in the top panel you can spot braze through , I think it it was appx 4ton per inch for braze , scissor type torch was best it gave better control ,I still got both types I found them in the garage , if you could not afford gas or a mig it did very well , I got best results using it at 20 amps on an old elto 20 to 90 amp ark welder !

Isobel Jones: Hi, I'm in the process of making a gas forge and need to braze a couple of fittings together, The old MAW welding plant I have is an Oxford oil filled type, Max 110 amps and I use it on a regular basis. I have had the Oxford brazing attachment that came with the plant for a considerable time but today was my first attempt at using it. I set the welder up as per the handbook instructions 55-65 amps using 3/8" carbon rods but seem unable to achieve an arc over an 1/8" gap between the rod tips? I then bumped the amps up another 10 amps but with the same result? What amperage are you using and have you any other tips? PS the welder is an antique (like me) but quite adequate for my needs, It used to belong to the man who designed and manufactured the ventilation system used in the tunnel of the Great Escape!

zach williams: I forgot, I need the torch too!

zach williams: I forgot, I need the torch too!

zach williams: hello. I would be willing to take that outdated piece of junk from your shop if you like. after all, I could use a welder and you could use the space. if you agree contact me by email at zachwilliams725@
outlook.com and I will give you my mailing address.
P.N I this is not a joke!

joey miles-kelly: Im like 900 precent sure thats plasma not flame.

1290457: WOW! that's neat stuff. I never seen that used before only read about it.  Where did you find yours at? I would like to try and get one. I like your videos, always learn something new.  Thanks for sharing.

qwertrewq9879878712: Hello,
I'd like to know if I can use Eastwood's Spot Weld Gun Attachment ,to spot weld my floor pans to the central tunnel( instead of Pop Riveting ) ? What do you think.?

Also I have a 220v AC welder( minimum current is 55 amps),I'm a bit afraid that it would burn the gun ,because I believe it's suppose to work for 110v AC welders, I was thinking in using a Diode in series with the Spot Weld Gun Attachment to half the power.( Same idea here as the Stitch Welder) .

Thanks you so much for your support !

Suesan Rood: Yeah he grabbed that red hot piece of steel thinking his gloves would protect at over 1200°. Did ya see how fast he let go? Bwahahah

Eldho Kurian: Can it work with the carbon rod that you get from a battery

いです。心配な(Rod): When you grabbed it at 3:29...

Michael Smith: In my experience, I've used much lower current than what you are for that size rod.  You may want to consider 60-75 amps- should make the rods last longer.  Otherwise, good video.

Brian Wynn: were did you get that 

Hiipurcult Ure: this carbon arc is such an astounding piece of history...probably unrelated to most of the rest of the comments...but i was just reading into some star wars sound engineering crap and, among multiple layers of other real world sounds, this carbon arc was used as the hits and sparks of colliding lightsabers

outinthewoodsnf: Nice torch setup, I have the same welder but I don't have the torch, do u think I could clamp the ground to the work and use 1 carbon rod to arc to the work to heat the metal?,,,, I need to redden metal for bending mostly

Gary N: used this when i was younger, got thinking one day and cut a brick with it. think the flame is around 9-10,000 degrees
