My son is a senior in mechanical engineering at The University of Michigan. Freshman year, he learned to weld, That summer he got an internship -nothing to do with welding, but once he was there it proved invaluable and he made enough $$ to buy his own gear, and is now employed by the U to teach welding.

My friend (William aged 70something worked in NASCAR among other things) has always maintained that if you can weld and pass a drugs test, you have it made. I think he's right.

Son is busy trying to teach daughter and I to weld....
