Any welders or metal hobbyists here?
 
I am a 20 + year welding and metals teacher and welding inspector. I also have a website www.weldguru.com. I always enjoy talking anything metals related be it it fabrication or art as well. Any other metalheads out there?

Degree in metallurgy. Super low in practical experience.

Got no time for the hobby, but the mind is always working on something. Did fire the forge up with my son yesterday.

If you find a nice southbend heavy 10, I'm in the market.

All I know about metal is that it doesn't burn as well as wood.

Awesome, love forgework, very few have patience for it anymore. Our school has a southbend 13 x 40 that they are going to auction off. But it is 3 phase.

just got a http://www.grizzly.com/products/Comb...tachment/G0516 but have not had time to test it out.

I have welded most of my life (on the farm and course), but I wouldn't say it's the prettiest in the world but gets the job done.

Would like to get into a little sheet metal welding for autobody work. What would be a good cheap welder to use?

Most welders tell me that a decent 120V MIG is about the perfect size for auto-body work.

I'm a pipe/structural welder at a shipyard that builds navy ships

I picked up welding a few years ago when I bought a 120V Lincoln running flux core from my father-in-law. Luckily one of my best friends is a very experienced welder and he's been teaching me how to run it.
If I can lay my material flat and run a straight, level bead I can come up with some pretty good looking welds. Running a bead uphill or upside down is where I get into troubles.

Inmen58 is suppose to be a welder by trade also ask him.
