    Listen idiot, I never said they were my plans, and if you go on the brewing website, the thread I started on the build was titled "Look familiar lonnie", which lonnie mac was the man that drew up the plans, and knew I was building it. I posted the build over here to show what I was making because it involved allot of welding, because this is the Miller welding forum right. Re-read the thread, I never claimed it was mine. Whats the matter, your calves hurt, from all the back pedaling your gonna be doing. These are one of these moments where you wish you wouldnt of opened your mouth, and say something you lacked info on, only to make yourself lose what credibility you have left. By the way, Cheers, I raise a pint to you!

    Thanks Crawdaddy, the shipyard that hired me on as their primary tig welder, helped me out allot and taught me allot of stuff I didnt know. I say primary because the veteran tig welder that taught me so much, retired, and little did I know I was his replacement all along and I didnt know. The beads I laid down impressed the veteran welder, and whenever I would weld up a project, he would say, "Looks good john jr!" (john is his name, and Jr, because I was taking his place) I finally got it, when he gave me all his tig stuff one day, and said, "its been nice working with ya, Im going fishin!" lol. Yeah, after that I had lots of time to practice. By the way, Im still doing the beer thing, and if your ever in florida look me up, and I will hook you up with a half dozen pints.

    As far as people go, no, not EVERYONE can weld like that, no matter how much they are taught, it is a skill, some things cant be learned or bought, you do need ability do do certain things in life. I believe that was josh's point. And I agree completely.
    No one came out of their Mothers womb with a tig torch ready and able to weld. Everyone that welds today had to learn it by some means,If it was self taught or trade school,or union or by a family member/coworker etc you get the idea. We all had to learn, some have reached their pinnacle and others like myself is still working on reaching my pinnacle. If some one is willing to learn they can be taught, and of course if you have a talent that can be tapped into that will make it even easier. But if you have no desire to weld then do some else that turns you on. After all if every one was welders, where will we get the food to eat the would be no farmers. That sounds pretty dumb. Every one has their talents and that is what needs to be tapped into so you can be victorious in life... I don't tell you what to say in your comment, so I expect the same respect from you, even if I am from Florida...

    Yeah, that's my only point. Obviously the Clapton analogy went over a couple heads.

    I'm not trying to bring anyone down. Nowhere did I say you should stop trying, or that you're not going to amount to anything. Hard work and practice will get you the most out of your natural talent. But not everyone is born with the same natural talent.

    I think I remember that discussion about the beer project, looks like you have had a lot of practice since then.Mike

    I don't know how you were raised, but I was raised to be the best you can be and having welds like the ones in the video or the ones that USMCRUS lays down is not out of the question..
    I do realize there are lazy and could not give a care people around, but you should not judge all by just a few. I would like to think that the people here on the Miller Forum is here to share thier talents, and to help each other in the welding and fabricating trade. So that we will be able to lay down a weld that's perfect. We are not here to learn how to play the guitar like Eric Clapton, I am sure there are forums for that.
    And if some one told me I would never be able to lay down the perfect weld, I would say" TALK TO THE HAND AND WATCH ME " Check out James 1:2-8
    We all should go to the inventor of welding for wisdom to apply knowledge.
    And to all that reads this don't let anybody tell you that you won't make it. because the truth is, you can if you want to....

    Come Hear the Motivation Speaker

    Wrong. People have a certain amount of ability. With hard work and experience you can reach the limit of that ability.....some people will never reach their ceiling and will still be pretty good, others will hit their limit and never amount to much as a welder. But not everyone has the ability in them to be that good. It's like saying with enough practice we'll all be able to play guitar like Eric Clapton

    So what your saying is that I will never weld like Eric Clapton?. I have to disagree with you, anyone can be that good. If you do something over and over again, it eventually becomes second nature. Anything can be learned and mastered.


    By the way, I was busting out welds like the guy on the import site using a dynasty 200 DX at the yard. Im pretty good at alluminum, but that dynasty 200 DX makes a difference in your welds, and if you setup the pulse feature, makes welding that much easier, but I really didnt mess with pulse all that much, because all the material we welded was around 1/4".
