    Good points about the name choice Chuck, I hadn't thought about it that way - especially about losing traffic to a site with a similar name.

    Looking forward to this because there's a lot of topics in the welding field I would like to learn about myself - even though I work in the trade, there's a lot of subjects I don't know a great deal about - TIG for example.

    There's a lot of topics that come under the category of "welding" - too many to really know 'em all. In my case, where I work I get involved with a lot of repair welding - such as heavy equipment - and structural steel/miscellaneous metals. 90% of the time or more I'm working in the field so I generally stick weld, and do a lot of my own fitting since many railing installations are "fab on site".

    By contrast, one of my co-workers put in some time at a company that manufactures loader buckets. His job was strictly welding, indoors with heavy flux-core wire. Both welding-related jobs but vastly different. Come to think of it, the fitter who assembled and tacked the buckets together also had a different but still welding/fabricating related job.

    Plus I'd like to learn some more about the engineering and design side of things: I know how to read and interpret drawings/welding symbols, but would also like to know a bit about why a connection calls for a 5/16" fillet weld, weld all around............

    Besides, IMO learning is an ongoing thing. :)
