Re: What the FUCK have you knuckle dragging fucks been doing!

[QUOTE=Erik415;39476]Well, I've been busy with a lot of stuff. Very little pipe work coming through though. But that's ok because I've been home every night for the past 8 months. First two are pictures of some small fab I did for a company I used to work for. Last picture is a white cast iron ball mill of unknown age. I got a call to weld it up. Repair wound up being unsuccessful and I told the customer it wouldn't work from the start. He wanted to to try it anyway.

July was a bit slow for me. Gave me a chance to go pick up a vantage 400 with only 515 hours on it. Going to put the commander 500 into storage for a backup machine.[/QUOTE]

nice, that's some fun shit.!!! especially as you get up into larger OD.

Lol nah been working in plants. Kinda took this year off welding wise. Had some family stuff going on and ended up taking a maintenance job. I’d be surprised if I made more that 15 welds this year. But things are looking up now and next year ought to be good. Aiming to get on the nuke circuit and see how it is. Next year is gonna be a big money year..... I HOPE!! 😁

hey money is money, and at you're age that's great experience. D.uring my 42 year welding career I took different times off to work on a drilling rig floor for 2 years. Did some rousatabouting, designed, developed and sold my own inventions exclusively for a few years. So, good luck brother.
