Forget deepfakes. Plain old fakes are still in business: videos cleverly edited or manipulated to give a false impression to viewers. Welding is one of the genres thusly afflicted, and here The Fabrication Series explains how it's cooked—and how MIG welding works in the first place, so you understand what the fakers are up to with those videos appearing to show them welding with a line of cold, quick, precise dots.
Not everything on the internet is real. This video examines common TikTok style welding craft videos and how they MIG weld. We'll show you how MIG is really done, and even show you how to edit like the fake videos.
