Hi and Thank you for listening to episode 14 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  We have received a few really good emails asking for more basic Tig welding information, so why not just help the Lunch Time Learners out.  We really tried to put our learners caps on and break Tig welding down to the basics.  We all started knowing nothing and there's many of you out there in that same boat.  Hopefully you new guys can pick up a few great tips in this podcast and for the seasoned weldors we hope it will inspire you to help out that new guy at your shop learn the ropes the way someone helped you.  So download, hit play, drop your hood, and enjoy!

Hi and Thanks for listening to episode 12 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  We wanted to talk about something we feel is very important within our trade that being safety.  If you've been in the trade for any amount of time we're sure you've sat through a few boring made up safety videos.  Sometime they can be very eye opening but most of the time they're just silly, to be kind.  In this episode we talk about our experiences with safety from things that have happen to us personally or has been close by.  We can work in a very dangerous environment when we're not paying attention, so we ask if you are listening to this at work please be careful and mindful of your surroundings.  So download, pop the earbuds in (maybe just one), drop your hood, and enjoy!
