awesome page. I bet his hourly rate is through the roof though. His previous jobs are pretty hardcore!

Re: show and tell... (jakanapapa)

eh not that impressed. dont get me wrong the welds are nice, but i was making welds like that in school. this guy looks tike all his done his whole life is TIG. have him do a 2 1/2 fillet with flux core with 3/32 wire like the **** i do all day long and i bet it wouldnt look good. tigging isnt that hard all you have to do is get your rhythm down and your golden. not to be bragging but ive only been welding for about a year and weld circles around people who been doing it for 10-15 years. put it this way if he can stick, mig, tig and dual shield in all positions (including 5 and 6 g)and make them all golden then ill be impressed.
ill see if i can get some pics of my welds tonight to back my split up. hopefully i wont get fired doing it. i work at bucyrus international and they dont allow cameras. i almost got fired before, i was about to take a pic and my foreman saw me
