Ben Mikesell, Ogden, Utah

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Nominated by Chase

My Hero

I’m nominating my friend/coworker Ben Mikesell. He is by far the hardest worker I’ve ever met and treats everyone in the welding shop like a brother. He never complains and always gives 110 percent. He really is a diamond in the rough.

I honestly think the world has a shortage of people like Ben. He is the type of person that you meet and instantly become friends with. He likes to snowboard and also enjoys racing his car at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah.

Making a Difference

Everyone is familiar with the classic construction scene: four guys on the site and only three are working. Ben Mikesell is the guy getting the work/welding done. Every time he meets a weld inspector, they instantly become friends.

Welding Application

Ben welds ornamental railing — around 1,000 pickets daily. He also has his 6G SMAW pipe welding certification and welds structural steel on occasion. He is very proficient in almost every type of welding.

Miller on the Job

Ben uses a ton of Miller products, including the Millermatic 251 that he uses daily at his welding station. When Ben welds in the field, he uses a Miller Bobcat or Trailblazer [welder/generator], along with a Miller Suitcase wire feeder.
