Hi and Thanks for listening to the episode 19 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  For this episode we had the pleasure of talking with Rory May also known as Dirty Smith.  We had a great time chatting with Rory about the art of being a Blacksmith.  To us this was a very interesting because we're all metal workers but a Blacksmith is a true metal worker.  So hit download on your favorite podcast platform, pop those earbuds in, hit play, drop your hood, and enjoy.

Hi and thanks for listening to episode 18 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  For this weeks episode we wanted to talk about the importance of tolerances.  Just because you can lay a nice bead doesn't mean the part is good if you can't hold dimensions.  Hope you can pick up a few tips from this talk to help up your game or just realize the importance of paying attention to dimensional details.  So download, pop in those earbuds, hit play, drop your hood, and enjoy!

HI and Thanks for listening to episode 16 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast!  We have had a very common theme with all the guests we've had on so far.  Everyone has all said paying attention to all the small details is one of their main reasons for being a successful weldor.  Rush Kane had said 95% is the prep and %5 is the welding.  When you see his work you know he can't be wrong.  We wanted to really dive into this theory and explain how we Sweat the Details on our jobs and with our welding.  This mindset can be very important and really step your game up to the next level in welding.  Sometimes it can be as simple as stepping back and thinking about what to do before doing it.  So download this episode, hit play, drop your hood, and Enjoy!
