Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast

Sep 12, 2016

Hi and Thanks for listening to the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast episode 8.  We wanted to answer some of your questions so we posted a photo on Instagram asking you, our listeners, to post questions in the comments.  The listeners came through with flying colors.  We had way more than what we could get to so we picked a few to discuss.  We had a lot of fun talking about these questions and are looking forward to doing this again.  So download, put those earbuds in, drop the hood, and enjoy!
