        My Job

        I am a Fabricator/TIG-MIG Welder for a company that makes parts for military and commercial. Actually I have done alot of prototype stuff for BAE. Even when it was United Defense, (IBAS Shield, 30mm feeder and return chutes, as well as the linbacker ramp.) One job I remember the most for BAE was in 2007 when I made a drill fixture system that was used to mount an armor plate on the bottom of the M2. I absolutly love my job and wish I could do it forever.

            I repair the machines that all you welders break. My dad was a union welder/fitter out of local 100 in Dallas before he retired and that's where I learned to weld, in his shop. I really enjoy fixing things so I got my factory certifications from Miller and Lincoln about 5 years ago. Been loving life ever since.

                  ~30 years ago in college I ran into some guys trying to build a really
                  big computer network to connect all of the world's computers together.
                  We think that someday it will be A Really Big Thing Since then
                  I've been having more fun than decent people should be allowed to have
                  doing software/networking/hardware/standards R&D.

                  Welding (and the rest of metal fab work) is a hobby -- some garden art, plant
                  structures, a bit of repair work around the house, etc, etc.

                    I know this thread is really old but I was wondering you work at BAE systems in mobile, AL? I've gotten accepted into the AIDT training orientation and will hopefully get accepted into the class. After that I'm hoping to get a Job at BAE and I was wondering what you think about it?

                                Self employed in the Ornamental Iron buisness,I try and do all my own hand forged work,why sell someone elses work?Use very little cast iron items although I do cast iron welding repair,mostly O/A with cast rods,along of course with mild steel ,alum,SS and brass.Also do some ag and consrtution repair but since I have parked my Big 40 most and I have a small shop 30 x 60 that limits that type of work these days.I also do a little blacksmithing with coal and gas forges as needed for my iron work and am currently rebuilding a trip hammer to put in the mix.I have been a welder since I was 18 in 1976 I have also worked as an estimater for a structual steel company/facility engineer for a bank and did a short stint as a conductor for a railroad,I am also an adjunct welding instructor.
