Lets see some more Stick welds!
Thats one thing our apprentices learn before they ever touch an Auto or Semi Auto process..welding is just a tool to us kinda like a saw or claw hammer is to a carpenter,but Stick welding is alot harder to get a hand on than anything else accept TIG and Stick is still widely used in feild fabrication,erection and repairs,some of them get a lil upset because they plan to just work in a fab shop somewhere,but rules are rules to become a journeyman International Ironworker
Our Apprenticeship has gotten real hard in the past 10 years or so,when i started it was a 2 year apprenticeship..now most of the International locals are doing a 4 year apprenticeship and they have to learn some minor metalurgy..rigging formulas..etc..alot of math and book knowledge now a days,plus even the apprentices are prone to random drug testing and if they fail once..GONE..HISTORY.
Lets see some more Stick welding!
