Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast

Aug 8, 2016

Hi and thanks for listening to episode 4 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  This episode we wanted to touch base about what are some good tools to have on hand when you start a job.  We thought it would be a good continuation from the last topic pertaining to weld tests and landing your job.   Hopefully, this will help any of you new guys answer the question of where do I start with what tools to have on hand or starting a good toolbox for the different job fields we've personally experienced.  Thanks again for listening and enjoy the show!
