    I've never heard of such a thing before. Do you have any projects lined up?

    After a quick wikipedia search it looks like something you might use to built computer cases or something far more advanced.

    I first started welding late 70's.

    So what welding have you got on the go ?

    I use stainless steel TIG welding rods for my blocking wires with my knitting, it's years since I did any welding but mine were the sort fixed to a bench and used with silver soldering wire to make fuses.

    I have several building with broken railings that I have to repair.(I do all the maintenance and reno work for the buildings)

    I started out welding Titanium(tig) and if fact, did a few small welds on the alvin sub. (only a few non critical welds on the frame, as I was still learning it then and wasn't supposed to, but the guys let me anyway.)

    Very cool! I have two neighbors who are welders. One is a retired journeyman pipefitter and the other is a welding teacher at a local high school. Needless to say, when I have something that requires welding, I know who to ask! Welding is a very useful and valuable skill to have!

    Honestly! I was expecting pictures of a new baby. You know - a small human.

    Congratulations anyway. A welder is probably more productive and cheaper to run
