Cool Steel Toed Boots Men

Are you looking for some cool looking steel toed boots for men? Let us help you find them. We took the liberty of checking out the famous online shop, Amazon, and picked out two of their best products. There are hundreds – maybe even thousands – of products at Amazon so it will be a little time consuming browsing through each one. We understand that some of you may not have the pleasure of spending hours in front of a computer.

We’d like to help so take a look at these two selections and tell us what you think about them.

 

  • CATERPILLAR MEN’S 2ND SHIFT 6″ STEEL TOE BOOT

    I’m sure you’ve heard of the Caterpillar brand. They’ve been around for so long and have been one of the top producers of tough working boots worldwide. Here is a picture of the product:


    You can buy this boot in colors black (the one in the photo) and brown. The product is being sold starting at 49.99 US DOLLARS up to 127.50 US DOLLARS. You will be able to avail of the free returns from Amazon. The boot is expected to fit your size by 81 percent.

    The boot is made from genuine imported leather that comes with a synthetic sole. The thick sole will be able to protect your feet from being injured in case you step on something sharp. The shaft of this boot measures approximately 6″ from the arch, while the heel measures 1.25″. I also must mention that the platform of this boot measures 0.75″. It is an ankle-cut work boot with a steel toe. The ankle-cut will provide additional coverage of protection for your feet, and the steel toe will protect your feet from being injured in case something heavy falls right on top of it.

    The boot also comes with a padded ankle collar for that extra sense of comfort, and an oil resistant outsole. Lesser chances of slipping!

    Here is what a customer thought about it:

    “Update: 3/4/15 I was helping a friend work on his car (Honda S2000) while I had these boots on. We had to put the car in neutral and push it off the tire ramps. After we pushed it down I tried to take a step away but was stopped at my foot. I looked down and realized the tire was on my foot! It didn’t hurt at all and I barely felt it lol. It was at the toe area. There wasn’t really much pressure, it felt like it was reinforced. He had to drive the car forward off my foot for me to get free. That was another time I felt good about this purchase.

    My first legitimate pair of work boots. Got them at a good deal for about $40 when a promotion was going on. I can’t really compare them to other boots since it’s my first pair but generally it seems like CAT products are good and sturdy. I have been wearing these for about 2 months so far and it’s given me solid support. It looks nice too. If I had to change anything, it’d be the the metal pieces where you wrap the laces around near the top. But it only gives me a problem when I don’t lace it up all the way. Maybe it’s my jeans. Otherwise, when using all the slots, it’s great. Recommended.” —— Javed Uddin

    The boot received an average rating of 4.4 stars out of 5 stars.

  • WOLVERINE MEN’S W05680 McKay Steel-Toed Boot

    Have you heard of the Wolverine brand? It really is as tough as Wolverine from X-Men. Here is a picture of the boot:


    You may observe that the neck of this boot is longer than the first one so this is able to provide more coverage protection that the one above. You can own this boot at a starting price of 54.99 US DOLLARS to 160.00 US DOLLARS. You will also be able to get some free returns on sizes and colors.

    The boot has been made from imported genuine leather with a thick synthetic sole. The shaft of this boot measures approximately 9″ from the arch, while the heel measures approximately 2″. The opening of the boot measures approximately 13″ around.

    Inside, you will find a removable full cushion insole for an extra comfortable feel.

    Here is what a customer thought about after purchasing it:

    “got as a gift. wearer of the product said wolverine men’s mckay boots fit perfect like all other wolverine boots that have owned. wearer said that out of the whole foot wear market that only wolverine and one other maker of boots make the correct size for his extra wide size 13 feet. wearer all so stated that a lot of makers will sell what they claim to be wider foot wear for wider feet but the only people who would probably agree are probably not larger than normal size american’s. think about it.” —– Skip By Me

    The boot got an average rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 stars.

Tillman Welding Gloves

Today we are going to be doing a quick product review on some Tillman Welding Gloves. They may be little, but gloves are important during a welding process. It will be your hands who will be doing all of the welding so you better take good care and protect them from harm at all times. With a Tillman glove, you can have that peace of mind that you have provided the best for your hands. It was in the year 1928 when the Tillman Company was founded with the goal of providing personal protection solutions for welders and other industrial workers. The company quickly rose to become the top manufacturer when it comes to quality welding gloves and leather protective garments. You will be able to find welding gloves that are suitable for Stick welding, MIG welding, and TIG welding, gloves for drivers, work, for mechanics, for high heat, and leather, lightweight flame retardant, high heat clothing. You will also be able to purchase welding blankets, curtains and screens, and some simple welding accessories from the company.

 

 

Let’s take a look at these gloves from Tillman.

 

  • John Tillman and Co Top Grain Leather MIG Gloves with Split Leather Palm Reinforcements

    Here is a photo of the gloves:

    The original price of this glove was at 29.95 US DOLLARS, but presently, it is only being sold for 19.95 US DOLLARS at Amazon. You will be able to save 10.00 US DOLLARS. Sadly, the product doesn’t reach the minimum price of Amazon, which is at 49.00 US DOLLARS, to be able to avail of the free shipping. You can purchase in bulk if you want, but if you want to purchase this glove, you better do it now since there is only 13 left in stock! Better add it to your cart now!

    It looks really nice based on the picture above right? The gloves has been made from a hundred percent cowhide split back leather which is pretty elastic to give you that best fit. It comes with a long lasting top grain cowhide palm with cowhide split reinforcements. It has also been lined with fleece for an added protection so you can use it in both hot and cold conditions without the added bulk.

    Once you wear it, you will probably notice that it comes with a seamless forefinger for the best feel.

    Here is what a customer thought about the glove after purchasing it:

    “I weld for a living, mostly dual shield wire. These gloves won’t sag down my hand thanks to the elastic wrist. The cuff is long enough to keep my wrists covered with no gap between glove and shirt. The insulation is enough to keep heat at a comfortable level, but not so much as to impair dexterity. Single seam on the index fingers removes the what I have found to be the most failure prone point of a glove.” — Andyp

    The product received a total rating of 4.6 stars out of 5 stars.

  • Tillman 1338 Top Grain Goatskin TIG Welding Glove

    Here is a picture of the glove:

    You can purchase this glove for 17.95 US DOLLARS. As I said above, if you want to avail of the free shipping offered by Amazon, you must reach their minimum price which is at 49.00 US DOLLARS. You can purchase in bulk if you want, but I must let you know that there’s only 18 pairs of this glove left! You better add it to your cart now!

    The glove has been made from high quality goatskin leather and it comes with a 4″ wide cuff for that snug comfortable fit. The thumb strap has also been reinforced to provide more security while you are wearing it.

    Here is what a customer thought about after purchasing it:

    “Great gloves and fit as expected. Arm length is great. Great for working with fencing as it prevents the metal from cutting your for[e]arms.” — Gerri

    The product received a total rating of 4.6 stars out of 5 stars as well.

What do you think of the two gloves we featured above? Which one is better between the two?

Miller 244749 Welding Jacket Cloth Industrial Small

They have been leading the welding industry when it comes to building advanced and solution focused products that will surely meet the crucial needs of the people.  Miller products have been designed with the needs of users like those in manufacturing, fabrication, construction, aviation, motor sports, education, agriculture, and marine applications.

Miller Electric is also a company that creates Personal Protective Equipment for industrial workers like welders. I feel confident to be able to say that you can trust in the company and it’s products. As I said above, the main priority of the Miller Electric company is to cater to your needs so of course, they won’t be using cheap materials to make your PPEs.

 

Let’s take a quick look at this product of the MIller Electric. They have a lot protective jackets but for now, let us just focus on this one.

 

Above is an image of the jacket, the 244749 Welding Jacket from Miller. At Amazon, you can purchase it for only 89.34 US Dollars. Yes, it not really what you’d call cheap but the quality is really good so in the long run, the jacket will be paying for itself. You’ll be glad that you choose to stick by Miller Electric. Plus, if you make the purchase from Amazon, you will be able to avail of a free shipping. So yay! More savings for you!

 

The material from which this jacket has been made of is cotton. Before you violently react, it has been given a formula that makes the material flame retardant, or in other terms, flame resistant. Really. If a stray spark manages to cling to the jacket, there’s no need for you to worry that it will burn through the material and end up burning you as well. The material is not easily burned so you are protected. The stray spark will just roll off the jacket. Plus since the material is cotton, you can be sure that it is breathable and comfortable for you to use.

 

Leather material may be great to look at and very nice, but let’s be honest, if you wear a leather jacket for extended periods of time, it’s a little heavy and hard to move around. The cotton material of this jacket will give you more freedom to move around while protecting you from harm. It’s a great choice!

How Come I Have Lots of Pinholes In My Welding?

If you have ever asked yourself  “How Come I Have Lots of Pinholes In My Welding?” Don’t worry, there’s lot of welders who experienced this. No worries, there’s a lot of solutions that you can do to prevent or lessen them. Pinholes are sometimes called as “metal porosity”. It is a weld defect that is fairly common but as I said, there’s no need to worry since it is also easy to get rid of them as well. When we say weld porosity or pinholes we are referring to the little holes that you can see on the surface of your weld. If you see a porosity in your weld, keep calm since it isn’t considered as a serious defect. Keep in mind though that there are what we call the weld code or standard, and your finished product having pinholes or porosity may not be considered as a good finished product.

 

If you constantly have porosity in your finished welds, then you may have to change somethings about your welding style because it is usually a  because of something you overlooked or aren’t doing properly. Here are some reasons for porosity:

 

  • You should check out your welding material for the presence of moisture which can lead to problems. It can be as simple as running water or morning dew which can condensate from welding on heavy plates and lap joints. This can occur below 50 degrees F.  The solution for this is to simple preheat the metal to 200 to 220 degres F to get rid of the moisture.
  • You should also check if the weld nozzle is too far away from the weld puddle. You see if that’s the case, the volume of the shielding gas has been diminished and the dilution of the shielding gas with the atmosphere will really affect the weld. The solution for this is to make sure that the nozzle isn’t too far away or even too near.
  • Check your cylinder out! It might just be out of gas! Time to buy another one!
  • Don’t forget that air or a draft can disturb the delivery of the shielding gas during the welding process. If you think 25 feet away is already safe, then think again. Welders will also have to be careful when opening doors and of the air that is being discharged from the machinery he or she issuing.
  • The presence of paint, grease, oil, glue, and sweat can also affect your weld product. You see these compounds release large volume of gasses when they are exposed to arc welding. You can bet that this is especially true with solid-wire GMAW and gas tungsten arc welding, but keep in mind that FCAW arc processes can be vulnerable as well. The flux make up was not designed to hand such contamination so don’t forget about that.
  • Just like the pain and other compounds we have talked about above, mill scale and rush when welded over form decomposition gases and oxidation process can begin because of it. There is a strong possibility of cold lapping and lack of fusion at the welds can also exist. When the metal oxidizes, it is no longer truly a metal and you can’t expect it to return to the same metal, most especially if the welding flux has not been fixed.

 

What other reasons do you know that can cause porosity? There are also some epoxy available in the market or online markets that you can use to cover up the holes if they are bothering you or can’t really be removed.
