    good to take advantage of the classes you can get. if its some thing you want to do its best to get to it as soon as you can. get started saveing up for retirement, its going to be expensive when you get there, and the last thing you want is to no longer be able to work and be broke. scrapeing by sucks.

    Weld 13,

    That's what I did. I split up my grade 11 and 12 years, and went for a semester of college for each of the two years (for free), graduating high school with a welding ticket, going straight into the working world after graduating. Basically a garanteed job, and the start of a good carreer. About fifteen years ago the adverage starting age for a person getting into a trade was 27. I don't know what the adverage age is now, but those starting much earlier can look back when they hit the adverage age and see how much further they are ahead.

    Well, yes, actually the reallity of the topic makes you shake your head and expect the worst, IMO. The video is funny, (Already sent the link to all my friends) but when kids and power tools get together unsupervised there is always a potential for disaster. Remember it has taken years for most of us to keep our fingers and eyes, kids don't have the experience yet. (:

    kids and tools

    Saw this over on the Hobart site and thought you should see what can happen when you leave kids unsupervised with your tools. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaOEmDJUNmM
