Some guy doing gates and sculpture in his garage aint gonna cut it (no, offense, that's the kind of welding I do.) Especially after the Gulf disaster, but even before you'd need to be able to pass X-ray, cold work, hot work, confined spaces, etc. And being mobile is the way to go there, unless the rig is in your backyard that is.
    Yes I would eventually like to get my own truck set up. I have never had anything submitted for a bend, x-ray, or ultrasound tests. But its not like I just woke up and decided to weld one day. I do have my welding degree I took a 9 month course. I also welded for a company for 3 years in Fargo before I moved back here.

      You might want to try building some truck accessories (tailgates, headache racks, grille guards, etc.), BBQ cookers, gates (I make mine out of 2 3/8" tubing and they are **** for stout). Just a few ideas, hope this helps.
