Demonstration Of The Carbon Arc Torch




What do you think about this video?

Lation Fly: is this old school??

neoc03: @3:31 wonder how much that hurt.

Rajat Awasthi: is it twin carbon electrode arc welding?

JD Custom: My Dad had one for a Forney welder when I was a kid. 1966 or so. The wires got pretty ratty but it worked. I found mine brand new and still in the original box on goodwill.com. Just today I used it when I ran out of acetylene for my torch. Glad to have it.

1995dresser: I have Been Welding for over 34 Yrs and Never used one or seen one used  I Would like to Give it a try .  you just get so used to using Newer things and forget how to use the old ones I can't remember the last time I Arc Welded  has to be over 28yrs  That's   Because I use a Heli Arc or Mig Welder  every day at work  Hell we even have a Plasma Cutter and the Gas Bottle setup hardly gets used

Paul Cote: I like to find one like this for me

Norman May: You can also just use a regular electrode holder. Just put the carbon (3?16" or less) in the holder and connect the ground to the work. The arc will be formed between the work and the carbon. Once the arc is established, place the Everdure (silicon bronze brazing wire) in the arc and braze away. Because the amperage to create the arc can be very low, this works very well on thin sheet including galvanized. If you get good with the method you can actually braze galvanized together with a lap weld and the zinc on the opposite side will melt and reform instead of oxidizing as it normally would. Although I have never done it, my Father once used this method of brazing using only a 12 volt car battery as a power source. An interesting website for carbon arc welding and heating is http://www.hobby-machinist.com/threads/twin-carbon-arc-torch.15015/ . They even discuss carbon arc brazing cast iron there.

Clayton Augustine: should a guy use a ac welder or is dc better( or worse) thanks for the info I just fould one of these in a bunch of scrap so looking to try it out thank you

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 ?

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.

NICK-O: 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

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
