i love learning new skills, always trying to expand my skillset and get all around better at things.. so i picked up a new tig welder, had a friend stop by for 20 min and give me a crash course on the do's and dont's and spent a couple hour over the weekend practicing.. practiced some tube work, flat steel plate welds and flat alum plate welds

Nice work!

Looks like your using fill Rod on at least a few of those welds. A bit of undercut.
Do your filler rod training without gloves. You will learn quick.

Oh man,

That's a small world.

He's a comedian, hell of a guy.


If you ever see him sock him in the breadbasket.
Tell him Brodie says "that's for quitting"

Enjoy response
