When Is It Best To Use Stick Welding?
Stick welding, also called shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), is a very basic form of welding that produces very strong results when done properly. It is a highly portable form of welding that requires a lot of skill. Sometimes other forms of welding are more appropriate for a project, but stick welding is what you want in a number of situations. It has to be done carefully no matter where or when it's done, but when the work is finished, you'll have a very strong weld.
