Practice TIG welding at my new job! I’m working for a guy named Patrick (website) who has had a long career in metal fabrication as an artist and engineer. He is also the head of a company called foreverbolt (website) that sells specialty stainless steel fasteners. Its a very different kind of fabrication than what I’m used to, but I’m excited and learning a lot. I have always been interested in continuing to bring blacksmithing into the modern world and I think these new tools and skills that I am gaining can all be applied to forge work in the future.
think the more things I know about metal and the more tools I am able to use proficiently the better!
