Hello, new here. Welding student in Oklahoma. Big fan of Jody, his vids have helped immensely. This seems to be where all the good knowledge is located 8-)
Thanks - W

It's about 90% shop and 10% book or class work. Started with oxy fuel cutting then Gmaw, moved on to Fcaw. Should be moving on to Smaw soon and possibly even Gtaw twards the end. I've done a bit of the latter 2 in the hour before and hour after the scheduled class time. A little extra info, 29 yrs old. Did mechanical design for several years before I realized I hated it. I know it's still only school but I love what I do now. :D
