In TIG welding, a tungsten electrode heats the metal you are welding and gas (most commonly Argon) protects the weld puddle from airborne contaminants. TIG welding produces clean, precise welds on any metal.
Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) is frequently referred to as stick or covered electrode welding. Stick welding is among the most widely used welding processes. The flux covering the electrode melts during welding. This forms the gas and slag to shield the arc and molten weld pool. The slag must be chipped off the weld bead after welding. The flux also provides a method of adding scavengers, deoxidizers, and alloying elements to the weld metal.
Metallizing is a commercial process in which a coating or layer of vaporized metal is sprayed onto a surface area to be remachined down to size. This is very useful for seal surfaces where you do not want to get any "air bubbles" that you might, if the surface was welded. It is also very helpful to metalize a bearing surface on a long shaft, because welding that same area could cause the shaft to bend. Below are some pictures of the process of metallizing a shaft's bearing surface. Pete Sr. is doing the metallizing.
