Welders use hand-welding or flame-cutting equipment to join metal parts or to fill holes and seams of metal products. They are responsible for reading technical drawings and setting up various components and parts accordingly, then weld them using a torch. They use a variety of other tools depending what project they are working on and what materials they are using.
