welding is a great thing to learn. my cousin is a welder in Chicago. that guy is set bringing in the big monez. i got to say there are days we pump out a shit load of product to the big companies. but the real fun stuff is the custom work. i have never seen such a big turn around here though, my boss can be a ass. but he knows his shit and he will tell you, you suck and fire you and not bat a eye. 2 years iv been there hes gone through 5 or 6 welders.

Petroleum Service Technician, wait, just promoted to Service Manager of the company I work for. I have worked in this field for 20 plus years. We build, maintain, repair, install, upgrade, buy, and sell related equipment.
I am a journeyman, licensed in 5 province in Canada.
Never been a Ford owner before but couldn't pass up this deal, and really like the truck.
