My name is Aaron Balaster and my father, Dr. Ammon Balaster, is the inventor of the world’s first hand held battery powered welder. (Seen when awarded the prestigious Edison Award.)
The Balaster name has its roots in being specialists and innovators in a somewhat similar ancient technology: the balestra, commonly known today as the crossbow.
Just like the balestra, the Balaster Freedom Welder uses state-of-the-art technology and design to store and safely control a tremendous amount of energy, enough energy to melt metal for high quality welding. And while medieval times were guided and governed heavily by such weaponry, today’s world is a place for building and creating. The Balaster Freedom Welder is a tool for building and creating in some of the toughest and most important jobs out there.
I hope that you will share in our passion for quality, excellence, and for putting the building power of welding literally into the hands of today’s great builders.
