New! HydroGuard™ Bench Rod Oven
HydroGuard™ Oven image (click to view larger image)The new HydroGuard™ Bench Rod Oven from Lincoln Electric can be used to help to protect stick electrodes from damaging moisture pickup, a major contributor to potential weld cracking and porosity.
The Bench 350 model holds up 350 lbs. (159 kg) of stick electrode up to 18 in. (46 cm) in length, enough for multiple operators in almost any fabrication shop or maintenance operation.

Do you need a cutting tool for occasional repair and maintenance work? Have you recently embarked on a new project that requires higher cutting volumes? Or, are you looking for an alternative to your current mechanical saw?

All of these scenarios provide great reasons to investigate plasma cutting. With technology offering increased benefits and easier usage - the time is right to take a serious look at plasma for your cutting applications. Benefits of plasma cutting include higher quality cuts and faster travel speeds.

Lincoln Electric's Booth During Sun 'n Fun 2012
Sun 'n Fun image (click to view larger image)Sun 'n Fun has been promoting aviation since its very first fly-in in 1975, and every April, tens of thousands of aviation enthusiasts travel to the Sun 'n Fun complex at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland, Florida.
This year's show takes place March 27 - April 1 and Lincoln Electric is inviting attendees to stop by Booth SE-27 where the Company will offer special show pricing, guest appearances by the AeroShell Aerobatic Team and provide product demonstrations and welding education workshops.
In addition, one lucky winner and their guest will have the opportunity to re-live history and ride on one of the rarest World War II bombers in existence, a Boeing B-29 Superfortress named "FiFi".
Not headed to Sun 'n Fun? Lincoln Electric will be sharing live updates from the show including photos and videos of the event on its Twitter® and Facebook® pages.
