    Cool Moody Machine & Welding Intro


    Ive been looking at practical machinist for a while now and have finally decided to join. I'm 25 and run my own small welding and machine shop. I have been welding for 11 years, which of most I have taught myself. My main type of welding is heli arc, though also capable of mig and stick. I like the no clean up with the heli arc welding. In the past 3 1/2 years I have been apprenticing with an old machinist who enjoys working on steam trains or anything steam related. I really lucked out finding Paul, he is capable of making anything that can be imagined up or repair something that is broken. I work all day at his shop then do my jobs at night at my own shop. It amazes me that he is almost 3 times my age and can walk circles around me all day.

    We all need a "Paul" in our lives - machining, welding, or otherwise.
