I've had a go a couple of times, I used to like it when I was young and my dad was a good welder he used to show me how to do it and get me to do some test bits.

Do you work professionaly?

I don't do it professionally...yet...but I would really like to weld on oil pipelines in Canada or Alaska. Fun off roading, $70-$100 an hour, and hardwork. I am in a three year program and I'm on year 2, so when I graduate from it, I'll be certified in about 7 or 8 different things!

Pro or hobbiest, I am a hobbiest, soon to be pro I guess you could say. I have 3 soon to be 4 certifications in TIG, MIG, and Stick welding. TIG aluminum, stainless, and mild steel.
