Coastalgrl: Quantum Apostrophe: Coastalgrl: I wish I knew how to weld on stainless. Would be really handy right about now.You utter fool! We 3D print our stainless steel now!Well I need to attach stainless steel things to stainless steel hull of a boat. No matter what the mode of production, I still need to affix part A to B.

Aulus: Years ago, when I was handling workers comp claims, we had one welder at an RV manufacturer who was claiming brain damage from welding fumes made him totally disabled. He also claimed it was the cause of his violent outbursts where he would beat the crap out of his wife. Too bad there was evidence of him doing that before he got the welding job.
Deep Contact: Coastalgrl: I wish I knew how to weld on stainless. Would be really handy right about now.As a Metallurgical Engineer. What grade of SS are you welding?
Coastalgrl: small boat hulls. 30-40 ft.
Shyla: Fissile: Jokes is going to be on them. A friend who has 25 years experience as a welder recently found a new job after being unemployed for 11 months.....he's being paid $22.50 an hour. As he said to me, "That's what I was making 15 years ago."Yes, doubling the salary of that office job us wimmen usually sit around doing is going to make us laugh really hard when we realize the joke is on us.
Coastalgrl: Deep Contact: Coastalgrl: I wish I knew how to weld on stainless. Would be really handy right about now.As a Metallurgical Engineer. What grade of SS are you welding?316 most likely and whatever grade most commonly used for small boat hulls. 30-40 ft.in the market for a new or used boat but contemplating long term adaptability. Fiberglass I know how to fiddle with in small quantitites. Stainless I don't but love the benefits of steel hulled vessels that I'm looking at. Extensive pro con list going.
the_colors: Man, I wish I had gone to the type of high school that had offered shop and classes like that. Even though at the time I was a little nerd and probably wouldn't have had the guts to take any of them. I'd kill to have any sort of practical mechanical/electrical/what-have-you aptitude now. I guess I could take some classes at the community college?
abhorrent1: Isn't welding toxic?
