I started my welding course yesterday. I’m attending on Fridays only until I earn two credits however long that is. I attended this same course around 1987 but obviously went a different direction with my career. My current company is paying for tuition and tools which is quite cool. I may have mentioned to them how insane it was to pay a knucklehead to fabricate when they have one employed. There’s little truth to the rumor that I am only interested in making throwing stars. Anyway I did ok with my beads yesterday but there is room for improvement. Long term I want a welder/generator on my survival checklist. Maybe it’s been mentioned here as desirable. Dual purpose.
