    I am almost 15 now. I started welding at 10 1/2. From now till then i have competed in 2 junk events. I am hired to do repair work at an antique shop. I am also an artist, I mainly do wall art and geometric abstract hollow-forms, I will post some pics in the future. To build up my portfolio I built a 6x6 foot sign for a company,pakit liquidators. I was also the assistant manager of and art gallery called Avant Garde. I haven't ceased to surprise myself and others to do whatever I put my mind to.

    C'mon guys, you are making me feel old now at 56. Believe it or not I was 16 myself at one time, unfortunately though I was into girls instead of welding, my bad, if only I would have known.

    I saw some of the work you guys are doing, some of it is fantastic, some needs more practice and so does some of mine. At least all of you are putting a really good effort into it and by the looks of things, all of you are headed to a rewarding career.

    My Wife/Chic says I act like I'm 16 years old.
    She means that in a good way.....................usually
    And she's right most of the time.

    No where. To weld in a shop you have to be 18 or they wont touch you. "Liability issues" is what I was told. I tried everywhere to get a job last summer.

    I had one guy laugh at me to my face when I told him I was 16. He said he had shoes older than me. I told him I could pass the 6G test they were running and he said BS... I grabbed my things, said sorry for your time and went to the next shop.
