    DropEm that’s some fine work. I stated in middle school, attended tech for welding and went a different career path but still maintain a fab shop at the house. I’ll have to dig up a couple recent project pictures.

    Back to the original question. Yes I can weld. Been a few years but I remember how to.

    I can, self taught......have a Mig and TIG machine. Not like some on here, but I can make shit stick together, look decent and be safe. Enough for what I need.

    Learned the basics when i was 11, Iím 34 now and still welding. I do a lot of code welding, inside reactors. Xray weld for chemical plants. I use mirrors occasionally. Mainly on tie-ins, in a trench.
    Here is some of my recent work, where I could have a phone.

    Like others I can make stuff stick together for a quick repair to get thru the day. Would like to learn more.

    DropEm. That is real talent!

    Thank you for all the compliments! No I have never worked in nuke, I was actually going to go test in jenkinsville with Carolina energy but then that place got shut down. I work hard at it. I’m Always studying the latest and greatest tips and tricks and what not. If I’m not welding for a while I still tack up pipe and practice. Practice with mirrors, practice using my left hand etc. I’m actually wanting to be a welding instructor. I need to build a shop so I can start doing some stuff on my own too.

    Define welding?

    I own the machines, does that count?

    I got a buddy that does it in nuclear power plants, I call him.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    If you can't weld, weld a lot.

    It ain't how good you weld, it's how good you grind.

    DropEm, those welds are incredible. You will NEVER be unemployed with skills like that.
