wee welder, if you're not too sure with the tig and you're ok with the squirty go for either a stick root/squirty fill or solid root/squirty fill. everybody has to start somewhere mate so don't let the assholes bring you down or dissuade you from your goal. don't be afraid of tig either, i had my first ever tig job in mossmorran last year and it's nothing to worry about, one minute i'm a poor squirty hand the next i'm doing a furnace re-tube welding this exotic kind of inconel !!!! you couldn't make it up !!! i'm 39 now and i wish i'd taken the first tig test i got offered years ago but hey we all get the same dough these days anyway. GO FOR IT and if you want some numbers, just like my good friend ally, pm me.c&c

ii had to take it because i was indentured

Guys does Babcocks do the training for the tig,
and other welding process?

If this is the case Weewelder this could be the way you need to go, I dont know how much it would cost. But its a direction that you can look at.
