Just a few more jobs and Iíll be rich!
 
Got my very first paid welding job today. My buddy brought me a broken steering arm from his kidís go kart. Fixed it up for him good as new. Even though I offered to fix it for free, he insisted that he pay. So, in my first 6 months of learning to weld, I have earned 3 tacos and a coke, LOL.

Iím afraid Iíve used up your acetylene. Iíll get the bottle swapped for a full one and bring your torch back to you this weekend. Otherwise I may end up going through these bottles too!

As much as I have enjoyed learning welding and metalworking, playing with an oxy-acetylene torch is just freakin cool

If you think oxy-cetelene is cool. You should try jet arcing. I used to help tear apart burnt up electromagnets (10 ton) and rewind the coils. Jet arcing, what a rush!

Yea, melting metal with fire is cool. I soldered new wires to the yard feeder motor today[emoji16]
