So cool !!
Thank you. R
Awesome! Did you get that from a clip in the video or just a shot on its own?
Nope. Just a normal still image but with some Photoshop smoke and mirrors. It is one of the welders who was helping to build our boat. In another life I worked in the North Sea and came to realise how important good welding is. I would even elevate welding to an art form. Our modern world would be nothing with welding (think of all those railway tracks!)
It’s a great shot. I do admire welders and would love to learn the trade. After learning the air filtration that would need to be put in, I decided to try my hand at cold welding. Doesn’t come close to the real thing. There is an old time blacksmith near here, he does amazing things too.
Welding is one of those things that looks easy until you try it!!! R
