    Beginner

    Hello everyone my name is Jonathan and i am a beginner welder with about 8 months industrial experience behind me. I recently moved to Arizona to go to School for welding, machining, and CAD programming. All i really know how to do right now is mig welding and i understand the concepts of tig and stick welding just never have had the chance to try my hand at them.
