Anybody got any aluminum foil welds. I've always wanted to see those.
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.

What do you want from me. I'd blow a hole in that so fast you couldn't catch it on a slo mo camera. And then if I did I wouldn't have any filler small enough. You step up and show me to do it then :lol:

Two details reveals my stupidness. :mrgreen:



Was that a little warm when you picked it up? (The classic answer is, "No. It just doesn't take me long to examine a weld...)

Crazy old drunk I worked with some years ago always said there were three things he couldn't weld.

The crack of dawn, a broken heart, and the wheels on a miscarriage...

Know what I'm doing Tuesday when I get back to school. Gosh... I haven't welded for over a week now. It's been a rough week to. A lot of wood split and moved to kill my back wishing the whole time I was sitting behind a torch or gun. It's a good thing that all I can think about is arc shots. Today it was downhill 6010 roots all day long in my head. Withdrawal will do crazy stuff to you
