    Spent the past 3 days in school doing nothing but welding :D Have had to pass my welding competencies. First day I got no welds passed. Tuesday I got 3, all MIG welds. A fillet, corner, and thin to thick fillet (16 guage to 1/8" with no burn through). Today was, MIG butt weld, Butt weld with backing on round tube(sleeve 1 1/4" inside of 1 1/2, plug and butt weld it then finish to look like one piece), TIG corner weld, TIG fillet weld, and freehand plasma cut(straight as if using a guide but freehand, doubt I could do it again). I love this class :D
