Last job i hired on i told them give me two weeks at minimum wage. A few days later i picked up a hood and stinger and looked at them as tho they came from space. Others guys told me to try it and i did and they found i could weld better than they could. I told the foreman i was scared of heights and proceeded to walk out a bar joist. Needless to say im still with the outfit pay is 2 above govt scale out here and i now have nccco crane certs. Ive moved up senior man and am the last one out of work. This outfit only used 3/32 lo/hy for all the welding including moment connections but after washing some guys out we now have 3 suitcase welders and we have moved up to 1/8-5/32 rod. Im the only one burning the bigger stuff but im teaching kids under me to use it. Im an old man in this game now so in next 10-15 ill have to pass the torch
No announcement yet.
Where are all the talented welders!!!???
