    Yes, no formal training. Had some friends show me the basics. I can mig and have a small 140A machine, just got a 200A tig/stick machine that I’m playing with but need to practice a whole lot more with. I’ve built a couple things but still get a friend to weld heavy duty stuff.

    Grew up working with wood. In college I took a few welding classes. It was a lot of fun. Looking back I probably should have taken it more seriously.

    Dropem as others have said, Very nice work sir.

    Can make stuff stick together. Have a buddy that welds on the lines out west. Works 6mos. out of the year. I pay him in Natty or Miller Lites, depending on the level of difficulty, when he is home.

    I don't like to brag and didn't want to make DropEm jealous, but I can't help myself...

    Nice puddle, you got it going on.
    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.

    I once saw a 20k capacity trailer hitch welded to a truck like JAB's

    Yes. Stick weld only with Cast 55 rods.

    Preheat, weld, peen, post heat, then submerge is sand to slow cool overnight. Peening and heat is critical.

    Wish I knew, but grew up with one of the best aluminum welders in Chas so I can go see him for that. Another buddy welds too so beer goes a long way.

    I have to admit that I pulled that off the web. Mine wouldn't look nearly that good...

    I took a class on it once.. years later I tried my hand on a touch up job on an aluminum brush guard on an old truck. I ended up cutting off the other side of it to match it up better.

    I can weld but in no means am I welder. I grew up burning rods whenever my dad wasn’t around just for him to come home pissed off I was wasting material. Then welded in high school for a bit, I like many can make something stick and make it look a touch better more than JABs image. Got a good friend who welds for a living that will get any work i have that I can wait on.
