Because I am Danish ;)

Moved to the US a couple of years ago.

Nail, Sure is, I started welding when I was 17, 3 years ago :lol:

Hopefully in 20 years, I will be welding as good as some of the guys here. :)

I know, I had the same thought when I saw you were the neighbor :lol:

Got a Danish co worker over here who ordered danish stickers for some reason and he gave me one, just happened to fit perfectly on my hood :lol:

Ya know, I really miss the danish weather, I can't imagine what its like to weld in freezing weather but I can imagine it being better than welding in a hot shower :lol:

Florida is nice but the summers are brutal. Even where I am at it sometimes gets too hot to work in the shop.

OH man,

ITs gross, I am lucky to work in an air conditioned building. :lol:

Had to weld a bunch of aluminum at one of our buildings with no A/C, in the summer..... I was drenched in sweat.

Horrible.....

You are lucky to have air...nothing like sweating like a pig and having damp gloves and getting zapped when you hit the pedal. There has got to be a better way to make a living :lol: but I still love what I do.

Haha, I feel you there! Had to do a floor inside a fridge, welding aluminum diamond plate Tigged the whole thing, was sweating since the cold air was off and it just got toastier and toastier, started sweating and getting zapped through my knees :lol:

Its funny what we put ourselves through and yet, stick to the bussiness. Something magical about it, hard to put your finger on it.

Like today, handed over a custom made surprise cart to a customer, him being the baker, his boss asked me to make him a cart for his bread slicer as it would shake the table it was on really bad. Made it it all out of stainless, really nice and she tied a bow on it and rolled it over to him today. Love to see the smile on people's face when you solve a problem for them.

That's probably why we are still in the bussiness :lol:

Oh, and because welding is badass, that's definetley a plus point.

I got bored and went through the whole thing and holy hell. I could stop laughing. So read it and maybe post if you want
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

We didn't call this "The Rogues' Gallery" because the name sounded stylish...

Here in sunny Arizona it's more of a dry heat lol, that is until ya spend the day welding new fins in a mixer drum. Definitely get some sweating action going on then. Someday maybe I'll get the chance to visit some of these other states and see what all the fuss is about.
