Yeah I was thinking about getting some weld inspection tools in general just to have. I suppose someday it wouldn't hurt to become a CWI too.

As for learning stick-I got to learn on a 35' straight body grain truck-kenworth t800, Cummins 255, 9 speed eaton fuller tranny. No clutch except to start and stop.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything.

Well as of 5:30 I have officially passed my first weld test. Only one little bit of undercut that opened that was still passable. And then he put me on some vertical t-joints to get that down after we bent her. He also sent me some new 3/32" rods to try since the others were older so we'll see

Funny you say that! I've been trying vertical and WOW I can suck like a gay man sucking a golf ball through a garden hose! As with it all-patience and keep burning.

You could Jeff, but you didn't and I thank you. Any others who try to twist my words will not be appreciated-just a full metal jacket reference. Besides not having a good day. AP calc test all morning, go fishing for two hours with a buddy and get nothing, two minutes after I leave he catches a 15 in bass, then I get to run vertical 7018s for 4 hours and then drive another half an hour back home. Maybe Thursday will be better when I go back up there and run more vertical.

To be honest the main thing I'm mad about is the fish...
Other than that I don't care a whole lot. I know it takes time Adam is gonna be a long while.

Most people I know are happy to have gotten to hang out with a friend fishing.
Then happy for the friend who caught a good fish.
Matter of perspective.

Well...we actually were having a bet (just a $5 wager) and he caught the fish where I was fishing at so that's it. Not mad about him catching it-more just the irony of me leaving and then two minutes. Still would have rather gone fishing with him than sitting around on my butt regardless. And I can't get mad at a guy for catching a nice fish.
