    If there's light coming off the end of the rod and it sounds like bacon frying, you're welding...

    Eastwood, if there is one near, has some decently priced entry lvl and up mig welders. They also have beginner classes that run for 8 hrs on a Saturday don't know the exact schedule. I was thinking about taking one of their classes though. They also have stick and Tig welding classes.

    Go slow, then slow down more-listen for bacon -steady hand and remember to breathe

    Practice practice practice practice practice practice then practice some more

    If it looks like this then you ain’t half bad. First ever pipe to plate pass and I’m still learning after 3 years. You can always improve in welding.

    Fell free to Pm me if you have any questions🤙🏾🤙🏾

    LMAO this is so true. I can't count how many times I have seen new welders (myself included) hold there breath while running a bead. I never understood why, but it really does seam to be a natural thing to do.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
