Only the stupid ones dont and they are the ones still doing work for prices set in the 1950s and complaining they have no money.people price shop all the time nothing wrong with that whatsoever.Business owners who want to stay in business make it a point to pay attention to their competiton.Mike

    Cruz, I worked with spec ops for years, my father was a seal, my uncle is a seal, and one of my primary clients when I was in was 5th Special Forces Group out of Ft. Campbell. None of those guys talked much about business, they were all consummate professionals, and none of them ever seemed to think that killing makes a man of you, moreover it to them was something distasteful that needed doing to folks that most often richly deserved it, but definitely not something to brag about. Anyhoo I'm off to go buy some aluminum. I hope you gents enjoy the rest of your day.

    I commend you for your rich family military background, and I respect all branches, but Im not sure if you read my post. I never glorified death or killing. I simply said that if it needed to be done, Id do it, no questions asked, no regrets. I never once tried to make it seem that killing is something to be talked about, nor glorified, but you do what your training has taught you, when god forbid the time comes to call. Please re-read my post, and not go off of the internet version of telephone. Cheers!

    wow! Did this thread ever go from some beautiful welds into a ding-ding slingfest. Most forums I've been on (and I've helped create one myself) have an ignore feature. You two might see if there's one on here and use it because it appears it's just not getting let go of. Just a suggestion.

    I hope to be able to weld as beautifully as those at the beginning of this forum someday and I believe with enough practice I will.

    Holy $hit! A welding question on a welding forum...what a novel idea! Do you have a better pic, it's really hard to see. It does look like a dot of porosity in the middle? As suggested I would start a new thread and post a pic since this one has become a pissing contest.

    You know what man, you win, I lose, and so If I say that can we just get back on to topic of the thread.

    I love how you think 9 out of 13 is some statistical extrapolation. We had 13 drill sergeants, 9 of them were Rangers. That number was explicit to my BCT company, where the CO was also a Ranger (who had also been through the ranks as enlisted prior to OCS). I'd have to make a list of all the others I've known. It started when I was probably 6 or 7 and I've worked with many over the 25 years since then.

    I don't care that you feel the need to pack heat to work in your driveway. That just doesn't paint a good picture of how well your neighbors receive you, and you ain't exactly makin friends here either if you catch my drift.

    Snappy come back? I'm just doing what you seem to claim you're doing - telling it how I see it. Maybe we're both wrong.

    So you think its right to bring up crap and attack me personally, because I didnt give a guy his due unintentionally. Which you pretty much did like you said "throwing a bunch of crap against the wall, hoping it sticks". When I proved you wrong on the first accusation, you moved to a second, and a third, trying to get something to stick, and I did eventually take blame in the matter of the quote calling, but the fact that you had to come at me, because you didnt agree with me agreeing with what urch had to say which was right on the money, about that anything can be learned. Im not trying to turn it around on you, but you do hold fault in this as well, and thats is what Im getting at. I really do want to end this, but its gonna take both parties, to come to an agreement here, and I will hold my end of the bargain respectfully. Cheers buddy!

    If you guys are so dead set on believing that any level of greatness can be learned, prove it. Go lock yourself in a room with a piano for the next 10 years and see if you can become Chopin. Do nothing but put hard work and practice into playing basketball and see if you become the next Jordan. Maybe you could take up writing and write the next great novel Dostoevsky?

    Not everyone has the same ceiling, THAT'S my point. The majority of people, no matter how hard they practice, won't make welds like that, period. That's why I give him props.

    Looks just a little slow on torch movement...to me. Id say you probably have good penetration, and its definitely not bad for vert down.

    Looks like you werent too bad with the fill rod consistancy, but give that a bit more practice, get a little rythm going.

    Just keep on burning metal, and working on fill consistancy, experience and time behind the torch are the best teachers.

    Fron what I can see, it looks good brother, especially if you welded that vertical down. The blue bands around the heat affected zone, tell me that your heat was about right. Keep up the good work!

    As for Marines, you don't fit the mold either.

    Justin was a super hyper kid I knew growing up. Couldn't sit still. Couldn't behave to save himself. Constantly getting in trouble and completely devoid of direction. He was 1 or 2 years younger than me and I lost track of him when I graduated HS. I ran into him 4 years later and it was almost shocking to see the man he'd become. Completely focused, very calm, collected, Sharp. Turned out, he joined the corps after HS (probably because his grades were such as to eliminate college as a possibility) and became a cook there. A remarkable transformation.

    No one I've known in the military has the pvt pyle killer complex you want to assume online. Special Forces or not. None of them puffs their chest as much as you do here.

    He went from a super hyper kid, to a cool calm collective Marine, because the corpsman was slipping ridulin into his MRE's. Sorry I couldnt resist. Not all Marines are created equal, and I apologize for being a supposed chest puffer, for now on, I will depuff my chest and start acting like I joined the Marine Corps full contact basket weaving team. I assume nothing online, this is who I am, whether you want to accept it or not, its not an act of machoism, or an attempt to try to convince myself that Im a man everyday, as you claim, this is me uncut, plain and simple, and Im sorry to burst your bubble, but you never being in the Corps Im sorry to say that you have no clue what a Marine acts like. I can say that you dont fit the mold as a honest, self abiding, love your fellow man, respectful, grown up, united states citizen, out of the 9 of 13 people that Ive encountered in my life, and Im apalled by your childish behavior. I admit, I am cocky at times, but Im from brooklyn, and that I can say stayed with me even after I went into the Corps. Im sorry you dont like who I am, and their will be people in life just like you that will hate people just to hate people, and Im okay with that, but if it bothers you that much, then put all your concerns into the suggestion box, and Pvt Pyles puffer HR department will get back to you shortly. Now can we get back to the thread, or are you gonna come back with a snippy comeback. To be honest, I aint even mad, I just want it to end, so let shake on it, and let it lay.

    I'd get some better pics and start a new thread

    It's kind of hard to see much in that picture....one thing I can say, is that typically I'd go up in that situation.
