    Best TIG welder employers?

    I've learned to TIG weld and am searching for employment. Aside from sheet metal fabricators where should I be looking for a job? What sorts of businesses hire TIG welders?

    Aluminum boat manufacturers, machine shops, titanium sporting good manufacturers. These all generally pay fairly low. If you can weld pipe, look in to the pipe trades at UA.org

    Where in the US are you?

    Check Craigslist for job postings in your area?

    I'm the DC Metro Area and in the past few weeks there has been several job postings for TIG welders and welders in general. I think some of the shipyards around Norfolk must have projects. I think pay in this area is 16-18/ hour?

    Insterno, you might get more ideas if you put your location on your info. Lots of aerospace shops in the Seattle area. Many small outfits and then there is Boeing.
