The Art of Welding

If you like the thought of creating things with fire and steel, then you will definitely feel right at home here.

Within this site, you can expect to learn the basics of welding. The site will provide many tools that will make your experience easier and safer, plus much, much more.

I, your humble host, struck my first arc at age fourteen. I was working under the tutelage of a seasoned machine shop owner in the evenings after school. A couple of years later I took all the welding courses available in high school. Later, I even worked as an oil field welder’s helper for a short period. My career eventually took me in a different direction. However, I have not been without at least one welding machine for the last thirty-two years. As a matter of fact, I still own the very first machine I ever purchased. And, I still use it frequently.

While not an expert, over the years I have built carports, barns, shops, ranch gates and entrances, roping arenas, livestock pens, horse stalls, race car cages, grill guards, workout benches, truck bumpers, trailers and miscellaneous artwork. (In a sense, all welding is artwork, IMHO!) And to my knowledge, they are all still in use!

Specifically, this site is the result of my passion to share the joys I have experienced building, fixing and creating things over the years using fire and steel.

Welding is a never-ending challenge to learn new things and improve our skills.
