Yes, price gouging creates a deadweight loss.
There are two types of gouging. First is with oxy-fuel. A special tip is used in the cutting torch that lets you direct the flame almost parallel to the work. A low pressure setting on the oxygen is directed thru the center of the tip. As the preheat flames melt the surface the operater depresses the cutting lever and the oxygen combines with the molten metal and is blown out creating a gouge as you proceed across the metal. The second requires a special torch and electrodes and is called carbon air arc gouging. High amperage settings allow you to establish an arc between the copper coated carbon electrodes and the metal. This melts the metal while a continous flow of high pressure air blows the molten metal out and a gouge is created as you move across the surface. In both instances the slower you move across the metal the deeper the gouge.
Gouging is the process of removing unwanted materials.It is done by means of material is locally heated and molten metal is ejected out or blow up.
I would think so maybe but whatever
sudden increase in demand.
It is used for gouging ferrous materials. 4 psi acetylene and about 35 psi O2. The tip is angled (bent) to kind of parallel to the base metal. The preheating holes are similar to the cutting torch holes but the oxygen hole is larger. Heat what you need to gouge and open the air (oxygen) valve when ready. The oxygn will oxidize the heat metal and the extra oxygen will blow the molten metal away leaving a gouge (groove)
Price gouging prevents poor people that need a good from purchasing it, while encouraging hoarding by wealthy customers who don't actually need what they're buying.
No because I have a bb torch
Any welding supply carries or can order for you, air arc carbon rods. They are the same that is used for air carbon arc gouging. Carbons are produced in two shapes, flat and round and various sizes. You would want the round ones.
