I don't really care if one take longer to be trained for and don't really care what the differences are. But what I do care about is which one is more likely to get me employed when/if I ever decided to leave the British army.
In my opinion i get fewer but better qualifications through being a metalsmith. but the fabricator is a more commonly used job title in the industry, And all the metalsmithing I have read about and watched videos of seems to be making jewellery and that's not what I would want to do if I left the army, I would want to become a welder/fabricator/engineer of some sort.
I am a welder/fabricator with 12 years experience looking to start my own small business out of my machine shed and see where it goes. i have all the equipment and tools to start but need some advice to get started. since I quit production welding i have alot of small to medium welding jobs for farmers and home owners but have no idea how to reach out to get bigger and better paying jobs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm a welder fabricator as of now, however I have training and past work history in automotive restoration and collision. A few guys at the shop know this and have asked me to look at their cars and how much I would want to do the job. I know how long a repair would take, but I don't want to overcharge them and lose other potential jobs. Any helpfull information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I am looking to weld 1/4" steel and up to 1/2" steel. What type of welder should I get and how hard is it to learn to do basic no structural welds that will hold up to impacts?
How many amps would be needed to weld 1/2" steel?
If I were going to go to an interview at a motorcycle custom shop as a welder/fabricator what would I wear. I've always thought dress to impress but I'm sure a button up shirt and slacks wouldnt do it for a job like that. I probably wouldn't hire someone who looks like they dont get their hands dirty. Does anyone that works or owns a custom shop have any knowledge on this?
I would appreciate any opinions of being a welder. I am beginning school for it soon. Thanks!

I have worked in a metal fabrication shop on and off for 2 years using shears press brake rolls saws drills and other machines and I have some slight on site welding experience. (Not a professional welder) I have fork truck and overhead crane experience and can obtain a class b cdl at anytime ( my uncle has a truck I can use and know how to drive already) I work very hard and can lift around 100lbs with general ease. I would like to work as a truck driver possibly or anything pretty much as long as it pays 15hr and above as that's what I previously made as a metal fabricator
