is difficult. You constantly deal with heat, spatter, hazardous
conditions, fumes, strange body alignments in order to get your welds
right. Sometimes welding is an awkward necessary task and other times it
is a passion or a hobby. There are so many things that can go wrong in
welding that can make people quit the pursuit of welding altogether. The
learning curve can be tough but when you get it right so many things
get done! Especially for beginner welders, the feeling of succeeding
with your first DIY welding project is unlike any other and it makes you
thirst for more.
There are many different reasons why we seek out welding whether we are hobbyists or professionals. For each person the needs and goals are different but the desire to work with metal and build something with your own hands can be strong. This desire to weld is ignited by the inspiration which can come from watching the craft and skill of other welders: friends, family or people we find on social media posting some of our favorite welds. Inspiration can come from many different sources and hits us sometimes when we least expect it. Welding seems to choose us as much as we choose it.
Every now and then we come across some stories about welders and their relationship with welding that inspires us to become better welders. Sometimes welding creates a career opportunity for us, other times it inspires us to create sculpture and art. The place for welding in our lives is flexible and can yield many surprises. Here are some stories which make us want to improve our welding and get out there to weld even more.
