Thank you, I appreciate it!

I love TIG welding and I miss stick welding (it's been about 4 years). As for MIG welding...... I'm not a fan but it's useful. Unfortunately I'm goingto have to mig this weekend for my roll cage.

I've not been doing as much welding in the shop the past few weeks (been on the burn table) and certainly haven't done anything I haven't already posted a pic of. But with a whole slew of structural coming up for the new world trade center (lots of built up columns) I imagine I'll be making more than a few REALLY large handwelds that'll be pic worthy.

I want to see them too!..i have 2 old "road partners" workin as foremans on the raising gangs on that job out fo the NY local.....i miss hanging iron on big iron jobs..but..I turned 50 last december..i just am not as limber as i used to be and can't compete with the young brothers for the connecting jobs.

I'll be updating my nuclear weld certs for Southern Nuclear this week as i am processing into another nuke outage here localy...,6G open butt, 2" heavy wall TIG carbon root and hot pass with a fill out and cap of 309L stainless stick,this gives me Unlimited to weld anything in the stick or TIG process on carbon and stainless.....the weld test shop is outside the protected area, so i think i can bring my digital camera in to take some pics of mine and other weld tests(Boilermakers,Pipefitters,Ironworkers)...I'll see what i can do but i will have to ask FIRST..i don't want to jeapordize my nuclear clearance and possibly gettin free nights at the federal hotel...lol

Kenbo those are some nice welds. You take pride in your work way beyond what's expected. Good trait to have. Maybe you have in the past, and sorry for me to ask again, but what kind of tig setup are you using?

You won't catch this hillbilly hanging steel. I don't like tall step ladders I'm so afraid of heights.

We're a fabricator not erector, we do our thing on skids 24" off the floor (thank god).We make it and the guys in hard hats on discovery channel just puts it together.

Thank you, I greatly appreciate it. I feel I do decent for a 21 year old punk haha. I use a Miller Synchrowave 250 at work. Nothing too fancy.

My MIG and stick welds were brought up before....

I haven't stick welded in a few years but I used to be pretty decent at it. As for my MIG welds, eh... idk I'm on par with others but nothing extraordinary! Haha
