    Re: As an actual business owner, what would you tell me?

    This thread is an eye-opener for me since I'm new to the field/craft and want to jump into the business as an entry-level welder. Don't want to derail this thread so I'll start another...

    There is one guy by us that still does iron rails a lot of them, he is the best, the cheapest and he has nice trucks and equipment. His shop was destroyed by a transformer that exploded outside his shop. He rebuilt and never missed a job. Everyone else is trying to capture the glory which does not exist, they have one truck and welder that sometimes works and sometimes does not. They are not reliable but you can save five dollars a foot, haha.

    If I wasn't so.....crazy, I wouldn't try to act normal, and you would be afraid.

    I think State Farm even has a "craft owners",,, forget what exactly it is but its for homeowner/sideline types. They might call it craft and artist. Dont use welding or fab in the name,, Billy Blades and sculptures etc.
    Did anyone see that on one of the pawn shows, a guy brought a custom collection in and they wouldnt take them. The owner said, these are super first rate and world class art and what I could offer would be an insult.
