Hi and Thank you for listening to episode 41 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast!  Hard to believe that we past the 40 episodes mark already!  Thank you to everyone that listens and makes it all possible to keep this going.  For this episode we thought it would be fun to have Dave Blackburn back on, who was our first guest, to see what he's been up to and also join us for a little Q&A chat.  So be sure to hit download, pop those ear buds in, hit play, drop your hood, and Enjoy!  Sorry for the audio quality for this one.  We had a rough connection while recording.
