I don't know about you, but where I come from a good job is worth getting excited for...

Good luck bud, hope it works out great for you. Any man willing to work a trade for a living is all right in my book. It's the kind of life you can hang your hat on...

Wow i could never weld that well. I was taught Mig/Tig welding in middle school and was absolutely terrible. Always got the little stick stuck to the piece of metal . My process was to layer up as much welds as possible and hope they held lol. But that right there is a beautiful weld.

Anyways congrats to the OP
