Terrill Welding Skillsets
Stick welding, also known as Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), is a type of welding process that uses an electrode, which is a rod or wire made of a material that is compatible with the base metal being welded, to create an arc between the electrode and the workpiece. The arc produces heat, which is used to melt and join the two pieces of metal together. Stick welding is a relatively simple and inexpensive process that is often used for welding in outdoor or windy conditions, as it is less sensitive to drafts and contaminants in the air than other welding processes.

When should you use STICK welding?
It is also commonly used for welding in dirty or rusty environments, as it is able to penetrate through contaminants on the surface of the metal. Stick welding is generally not as fast or efficient as MIG or TIG welding, but it can produce strong, high-quality welds when performed correctly.
