Welding is about dreaming & creating:

Let me help you with these:

* You can learn the basics in a short time...

* Design & build your own stuff...

* You could eventually advance to great pay...

* Did I mention that arc welding is awesome?

I will show you in an "over the shoulder" way to go ahead & dream, then get it done. I give you lots of tips & tricks for various types of arc welding.

When I wanted to join the welding crew, the first words from my Department Head Boss were: "There's more to welding than just running beads." As I learned the whole process from having an idea to finishing the job, I understood exactly what he meant.

That is the goal of my website, to help YOU understand what he meant by that statement.

I get right to the point. There won't be 100's of pages of data, just good ol' welding "how to".

*WARNING*: This is NOT a text book, this is a readable & useful arc welding website!
