    That's a good one is that because like me you've put on a few pounds.


    P.S. Like you I used to work in confined spaces a few years ago.

    Mike, it was open access that became 'restricted' access over time.

    I taught myself to weld purely in order to be able to stick nuts on sheared off bolts and to get broken studs out.... I say 'weld' in the very loosest sense, certainly don't claim to have much skill at it!

    yep still doing it although my day job i have been banished to the office or running jobs instead of being on my tools, i find the days drag like hell now I do the odd job where i have to actually weld if it gets complicated like last year flew out to qatar to work on the new airbus hangers That was a good crack but welding in 50 deg heat takes its toll but i am glad i went out there, I used to do alot of welding in confined spaces ,underground tunnels and escape hatches and the likes also stainless and ally work , atb wayne

    David, hope your old enough to remember the days when the iron went up without these bloody pickers..

    I was on a good few powerstations in the early 90's

    Great days walking the steel

    I'm not a welder as such but I can weld... being brought up on a farm, arc welding is an essential skill and these days I use a mig mostly to weld up holes in Landrover chassis.
