    I seriously doubt that ol drpipe can weld at all.

    Welding is very difficult with your arm in a sling (from spraining your shoulder, patting yourself on the back).

    I worked in Yellowknife and Fort Simpson for quite a while, where a burger and fries exceeds $20 bucks. $40 /hr doesn't cut it for lodging (as you have to live somewhere) grocerys and such. Mind you I was a Aircraft Engineer at the time making $45/hr back in 1992. Here the average wage for a jouneyman welder exceeds $50/hr for shop, and over $100/hr full supply as a rig welder.

    1/3, hope you have harder questions than that to deal with.
    As for wages you can go on any state labor website to find what the prevailing wages for that area are, if your pay is less than that then your not making top wages in your field.

    It's not the UNION , it's mostly governors ! They do a term in office and then
    they go to camp. One of those country club jails.
    As far as burning rod, once I mastered it as you have,[ in a few hours,] I moved on to the next level. Running work, estimating , and into office. I just did what many here have done and others that are working towards doing .
    Pipe Designer ? What pipe have you designed there ??? Are you like Ralph Laureen, Chaps , or that Tommy Hilfinger ?
    Fitter ? What's that you do, hold up a fitting to a piece of pipe? And when you nod your head do they hit it ? That would explain a lot. Those hits on head and being dropped on head at any age can cause problems, as we can see.
    Do use a rule? I bet those little lines confuse you . Or, do you just say like five and four lines.
    I know, you being the smartest have a rule marked indicating what each is, 1/8''1/4 , 3/8 . etc. Actually, you probably take it to bed with you to see how long you sleep. Thanks for keeping me laughing.

    Yes, he is.

    Guys, guys, guys... Why do you continue to feed the monster? If everybody ignored him and never replied to any of his posts, he would eventually get lonesome playing with himself, and go somewhere else. Or (doubtful) get his act together.

    It can be fun to jerk his chain, but that just gives him more opportunities.

    Think about it.
