We now have a welding forum, so post away.
hip hip hurray
Eric - I'm happy to see this new forum here! Looking forward to sharing info with everyone - even though I earn a living in the welding field, there are aspects of it which I don't have experience with (for example: heliarc (or TIG) welding) so I look forward to learning from others here.
The bulk of the work I do is mobile arc ("stick") welding, most of the time I'm on a jobsite or customer's shop/property. I work for a fairly small company that does structural steel supply & erection, miscellaneous metals (stairs, railings etc) and repair welding. Throw in the odd bit of millwrighting work, custom fabricating & pipe welding and there's lot of variety - never a dull moment!
Right now I've been busy for the past 5 weeks at one of the gravel pits near home, helping repair/rebuild/set up a portable limestone plant - the kind of heavy welding & fabricating I like best!
As well, I "bring my work home with me" in the sense that if I need something and I can build it, I do. Torch cart, stand for bench grinder, engine stand, truck parts such as: plow mount, bumper, headache rack, stacks, & deck.
BTW, other than an introductory course back in high school, it's been learn-by-doing for me, with the help of some people who were willing to show me the "right" way of doing things along the way.
I have been welding for many years, but it has been trial and error.
I hope to learn a lot here myself. I still have a stick welder and a 110 meg welder. It can be a life saver whey you have a break down.
We got 100 posts on this forum in less than 2 weeks, so it looks like this will be a hit.
I want to thank 75 and Alan for helping out with Moderating this forum. As of tonight, you are now the official Welding Forum Moderators.
Again, thanks for the help.
Another good choice.I would never have guessed about a welding forum.Again this is a very useful forum.
