No joke about Travis being s pipe welding savant. That man's knowledge of metallurgy combined with how natural he looks while working is just astonishing. I always love watching his work and listening to him teach. Bang up job.

Another good podcast guys,thanks for posting these every week i am learning a ton.
That pipeliner style with the flip front is the best grinding sheild out there,only thing i noticed is the clear lenses are not shatter proof some times so be carefull,put a good shatter proof lens in em.

You guys think you could have feildres2/travis on the show one day?
That would be a blast .

Keep up the good work and stay busy!!
