Heck Industries added this new handheld welder to its line of fabricating equipment. The new weld shaver uses standard carbide inserts in a milling cutter to shave weld beads flush to a work piece. It can also be used for cleaning butt welds and corner welds. The weld shaver will remove only the weld and not damage surrounding materials such as conventional grinding joints. The company says that the two-horsepower Model WS-625 will remove welds at 6 to 8 feet per minute.
