Thread: Hello

  1. #1

    Default Hello

    Hello, I am a 16 year old welding student looking to learn as much as I can with various welding forums and am planning on buying my own home EverLast Tig welder. I currently do have a job welding (modifying shipping containers) and love it and am hoping to become good enough at Tig to weld for LockHeed Martin or something similar.

    Welcome to the forum. I work for Lockheed Martin, but on the other side of the country from you.

    Welcome aboard EB. You TIG the containers?? Feel free to jump in with questions or answers. When you're ready to buy, get ahold of Mark (performance) here on the forum.

    2 of my sons started welding under 16, you will find you have it down faster than you think. Main thing is lots of seat time.

    No, it's Fluxcore wirefeed on the containers too windy for tig or even mig outside by the water. Fortunately being in highschool I have 3 whole periods dedicated to welding so I get 3 hours a day to weld as much as I want plus it costs me nothing in consumables. And will do thanks.

    You are a lucky person for sure. 3 free hours of welding a day. Nice and no cost to you. WOW.

    What kind of requirements did you have to meet? (Experience wise, and such)

    Not sure, I'm an engineer. Welding is only a hobby for me.
