Hi, and thanks for listening to episode 32 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast. This week we sit down with Ian Johnson know mostly from the TV show Xtreme Off Road. I remember watching Ian years ago while he fabricated awesome off road vehicles wishing to learn how to weld and build some of the rigs he has made. We get to share with our listeners how Ian got started welding and fabricating and some behind the scenes of Xtreme Off Road. One thing that makes Ian unique is he is exposed to all types of fabrication work from sheet metal, tubing and all kinds of equipment. So download, pop those earbuds in, hit play, drop your hood, and enjoy!

Hi and Thanks you for listening to episode 31 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast!  We thought it would be fun to go back to some of the basics of Mig welding like we did with Tig but we went a little further than just the basics.  Just about everyone knows how to mig but you might just pick up a few things in this episode that could really step up your game.  So go ahead download, pop those earbuds in, hit play, drop your hood, and enjoy!
