Jan 23, 2017

Hi and Thank you for listening to episode 27 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast!  For this episode we had a fun time talking with Paul Brinegar from ZTFab. We heard all about his past and some plans for the future.  If you have never seen any of Paul's products that he manufactures be sure to head over to his Instagram page @ZTFab to check them out!  His welding carts are second to none.  His products are built for weldors and fabricators by a weldor and fabricator!  So download, pop those earbuds in, hit play, drop that hood, and Enjoy!
