    Talking College Here I come

    I am done of high school in the matter of days! I cant believe it I only have exams and I'm off to welding school. I still cant believe how fast high school went by. I'm done of my coop placement today and I have to purge my boss's gas tank I fabricated. I wish I could of grabbed some pictures. I cant seem to find my camera anywhere. But besides the point I feel very pleased to say I can actually understand how things work and how to actually build something without countless mistakes. Wish my luck as I begin my exam studying Then I'm out in the real world

    The other night my girlfriend went and got a tattoo done and I also got one (with her money) I got the miller logo on my spine The girlfriend has a camera that works so Ill be taking pictures of that and I think I'm going to take the tool box over and take a few of them as well I was really happy to get that miller logo on my back. But before you say I will regret it heres my reason, It has a lot of back ground for me in welding it was the first type of welder I ever used and I still remember that in grade 7 and I'm still proud to use it today! I went to the miller shop yesterday and I think if the money is there this summer I might be looking into a miller auto set I don't have any big connections so thats my only choice and I may have to go with gas less wire. I was hoping to get a stick welder but I only have a regular plug at the house they told me my next option is going to Canadian tire and picking up a cheapy which I'm really thinking about because I need to save for college any advice guys?

    cool TAT due. if its some thing important to you then thats cool. its your bod i just hope its not out on your neck. but some where it can be hidden for job interviews, and showed off with frends during social times. be shore to show us some pic's. you only have to justify the tat to your self. you are the one that will be liveing with it.
    wile i am all for Miller welders and buying a good tool once, in this case a cheaper MIG might be the best choice for you. true it may not weld as sweet or last as long or may have some feed isues. any of these can be lived with wile doing small projects for fun and with a lil help or work atit maybee make a lil side $$ from frends so you can aford a better welder.
    dont break the bank going for the new MM140. its agreat welder i'm shore as i love my MM135 big time. but you are yung and will have plenty of time to get a better welder, dont break the bank on it now. like i said if you find a way to make some $$ with it you can always work up toa nicer one later, maybe even the passport.
    thanks for the help

    Right now I'm going on just to get my welding and fabrication seal there two different ones and I'm kind of interested in machinist work as well. As for now I haven't really figured out what I want to do but I was thinking going into pipe line welding and I am still interested in building and fabricating choppers I want to go down to California for that though.

    Cool Choppers

    Hey ya I think califorina is the best place for the schooling the cost is a little high now I'm not sure but I think it's $25,000,00 weather it's more or less it's worth it there are other schools I'm not to sure about BC , Alberta or toronto.
    Good choice though considering gas prices and the way they are going.
    O ya there is a guy on here that deals in choppers I dont remember his name but he is a guy I know that for sure.
    Are you going to get a bike down the road?
