    Default Ed Craig, is this guy legite?

    A while back I stumbled across this website http://www.weldreality.com/default2.htm
    and actually took the time to read all of it. (I know, I need a life) Although he does seem to have legitimate points, and the way he carries on make him see reputable, I still have to wonder. (Think Beverly Hills Cop, where Eddie Murphy walk on to the construction site and pretends to be the foreman) After all, he is trying to sell his product, which is the first thing that makes me wonder, and what he says essentially paints 99% of us welders as hackjobs. I just thought I would pose my question here, what do you guys think?

    BTW, if you haven't seen his site, you don't have to read the whole thing to get the idea, it's pretty repetive. (And whether or not he can weld, he sure can't design a web page.)

    He does say why and how he developed his attitude.

    Default I'm a skeptical guy

    I guess what I find suspicous is the fact that he goes on (and on and on and on) about how NOBODY is able to properly adjust GMAW perameters, automated or manual, BUT, he conveniently he has the solution. (For a small fee. ) Sure there are hack job shops out there, but if the industry was in as bad a state as he says, nothing should be working at all right now. Is this guy just blowing El Toro excrament?

    You hit the nail on the head.
    Anytime anybody in any industry claims that they, and only they have THE ANSWER, while everyone else in the industry are total idiots??
    That pretty much sums up his website. 927 million idiots vs. one ed craig, the sole repository of the great wisdoms of the metal fussion processes crying out in the wilderness.
    Give me a break.

    He gets 20,000 hits a day on his website?

    There's nothing like paying somebody in a suit and tie three times what you could pay a skilled blue collar welder to do.

    I like this pic I found on his webpage though:
