ESAB Welding & Cutting Products invites 2017 SEMA Show visitors to “get under the welding hood” and personally experience ESAB’s innovative products at booth 21629 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, Oct. 31 – Nov. 3 (see floor plan).
Featured products include a growing line of ESAB Rebel welders, the Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 60i manual plasma cutter, Victor oxy-fuel cutting outfits and the Sentinel A50 auto-darkening helmet. Special show pricing and rebates will be available for savings of $75 to $200. Select units are available for cash-and-carry purchase, including the Sentinel A50.
“If you’ve been thinking about buying welding or cutting equipment, there’s no better experience than the ESAB booth at SEMA 2017,” says Bill Wehrman, North American Marketing, ESAB. “You can try before you buy, get tips and application advice from our experts and receive our best prices of the year. We can even drop-ship right to your door.”
To highlight the capabilities of ESAB’s welding and cutting equipment, Andrew McLaughlin of LetzRoll Offroad Racing has overhauled a 2000 Jeep TJ. LetzRoll is in the process of turning this rough Jeep (found on Craigslist) into Rebel Tough, a vehicle that can rock crawl with the best of them and still cruise at highway speeds. You can watch the build progress at esab.com/sema2017 and see the finished product in the ESAB booth.
When it comes to teaching booth visitors about welding in the motorsports world, few match the skills of Ian Johnson. He will be in the ESAB booth every day of the show, ready to answer visitor questions. Be sure to ask Johnson about his new venture, called Ian’s Big Tire Garage, and check out his Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Special celebrity appearances will include “Hot Rod Garage” cohost Lucky Costa. Costa started as a mobile mechanic, found his way onto the set of “Overhaulin’,” is now the cohost of “Hot Rod Garage” and also makes guest appearances on “Roadkill.” Costa will be in the booth on Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2–4 p.m.
