Tig welder needs help finding a job. Is there a job finder in Kansas City that helps with that?
So what should an experienced tig welder make a year? someone who is welding more exotic metals and doing high-end welding like the aerospace field.
I need to be able to repair aluminum and bronze casting defects, and weld steel as well. My material thickness rarely exceeds 3/16 or 1/4 inch. What characteristics should I look for in a TIG for these purposes?
I have many welding certifications in all kinds of base metals, gas combinations and positions, and can use all common welding processes. I know someone needs a skilled aluminum TIG welder. Pipe included. All applies to steel, stainless steel, and titanium.
Im currently a TIG Welder (semi-skilled) and only have a years experience. I want to better my career within the next few years but without doing a 4 year apprenticeship for rubbish money.
Most places ask for qualifications but im not sure what type they want. I have looked at night courses but in welding bit i dont know if it will be enough to do things such as onshore/offshore work etc.
Can anyone help ?
I am 20 years old, and I have many certifications in the welding department and I have recently completed the Flour Daniel Pipe welding program. I am having a hard time finding a job because I have such little experience. I have held one welding job as a stainless steel tig welder but that was in 2008. So I was wondering if I could enroll in the armed forces as a welder and work not fight.
I just need one thats going to get the job done and not break on me.
is a little portable 110V good enough? or what size should i look for?
what about the HTP 130 invertig? it says its good to weld 3/16 steel....
I bought a pretty cheap Campbell wire welder and it seems like it's the wrong tool for the job. Ugly, spotty, messy welds that don't hold well. Then again, maybe I'm just a n00B. Even if it's my low skill level, would a stick welder be better anyway?
I'm interested in getting a qualification in welding due to the rise in the demand for qualified welders here in Pennsylvania. I'm just curious about which course might be a better choice, and any information in general would be appreciated.
I don't know about the specifics of the job, so what do they do in particular? What is the salary?
I just used a tank torch w/welding tip when I was younger. I would like to weld together some framework for a trailer, maybe a ladder rack for my pick up that sort of thing do I need to have a mig a tig an arc? can it be something I can plug into standard outlet. I know enough to hurt myself so I'll obviously need one that I can learn with but that will do bigger jobs once I have an idea what I am doing. I don't have much mulla either so I want something cheap or my wife will have me welding a skid plate for my but as she boots me down the street. Maybe I should just stick with torches and coat wire.
I would like to know which type of welding certification is the highest in demand for jobs and/or which one can bring in a greater salary. If its more than one please let me know.
Hello, well it's my first year in college. to start it off, im terrible at math. and i was curious. what would i need to be good at, to go into this field.
How hard is it?
Whats the best welding job? TIG?
If im terrible at math, would i even come close to qualifying for the job?
Im sorry, if i dont make much sense. but im anxious because welding seems like a field that i would love to go into. especially underwater welding. which i heard is really hard, and dangerous.
I have a blown head gasket on a Honda Nova and the mechanic reckons he can fix it through welding for $750.00. This is in Queensland Australia. Should I go ahead with the job or is this just too true to be good since other quotes ranged from $1,500 to $2,000.
Before you judge, I can deal with people, but I'm looking into trade skills since normal college classes just aren't for me. Like I said, I can deal with people, but I'd prefer a job where I do work without being bothered with civilians, I put a lot of effort as an overnight stocker at Wal-Mart and it was easy, but here and then you get those jerks that be rude cause they can't find something. I felt bad for how bad some of the customers treated the cashiers.
IDK, it could just be that retail jobs aren't for me.
Another thing is, in some ways, I kinda know what I want to do (Mostly interested in Welding), but then again, I sorta don't know what I want to do with my life. Don't bother saying Military, cause truthfully Military is out of question, got med discharged from ARMY cause I needed a waiver for high arches on my feet (Pes Cavus), so now I have to wait like 2 years to reenlist and I still might not be able to join with the way the military is down sizing and the way the economy is going hurts my chances. (MEPS fault for not telling me that I needed a waiver)
I was looking at Plumbing, Electrician, different types of mechanics from Elevator Mechanic, Refrigeration Mechanic, few technician jobs, and welding.
I've been doing a lot of research on Welding, my college does Stick and TIG welding classes and I was recommended to do and get certified for both.
I was told to join a union, then again I was told not to join a union, but I was told if I join a union, I'd get free training and then get a job working with the union.
I want a good description of any mechanic, electrician, technician, welder, or any job that I listed above that are in high demand, so I can do some research and see if I'd be interested.
I might like any skilled labor jobs honestly, it could just be that I dislike retail jobs.
I am 43 years old and bin a mig welder most or my life thinking about going back to school to get certified.
What is easiest to use that will get the job done for this thick a steel? is arc tough to learn will mig be strong enough?
I was thinking of what MOS I might want to do when I join the Marine Corps. Welding seems like something I could do in the military and as a civilian. Do you know anybody or have you ever been a welder in the military? What's the training gonna be like after basic? Thanks.
Saw a vidio of a welder in a combined space at a copper or coal mine and he got killed due to explosion from gas. i dont want to train as that kinda welder. Also what is classed as a 1st class welder ?
