November 5, 2018
For this episode we thought it would be fun to talk about the Dreaded Spool Gun.  Roy has been working on a job for Jonathan for the past few weeks that has been nothing but Spool Gun Aluminium, so we thought the timing would be good to talk about our experiences we have with them.  What has worked and what has not.  They're not the most ideal way of welding aluminum but they really do get the job done and if you pay attention to the small details they're really not all bad.  Enjoy!
October 29, 2018
For this weeks topic we thought it would be fun to chat about a few of the different kinds of Super Alloys there are out there, that we know of, and how you can take the techniques welding them and apply them to more standard materials.  We hope that this episode will spark an interest in you to go do some research of your own on some different materials.  Never know when that extra information will be very handy!

October 8, 2018

October 1, 2018

September 3, 2018
For this episode we had a chance to get to know Scott Thayer who works with Bug-O Systems.  Jonathan knows Scott very well and had fun talking about their past.  If you've never heard of Bug-O or never had a chance to run a mechanized welding system you're missing out on some interesting things.  These systems will never take over the welding industry but they do have their place.  When the job calls for it, it's handy to know what tools to look for!  Enjoy!
August 27, 2018
For this episode we're doing a re-post of episode 28 Underwater Welding with Nate Martin.  This past week we had a really hard time lining up our schedules and when we did get together the connection was really bad.  Didn't want to miss posting something so we thought posting one of our favorite episodes would be good.  This episode is one that you can listen to many times and pick up different things each time.  Enjoy
August 20, 2018
We get asked often Where, What, How, Why to start something on the side.  Most of the time this also includes a limited budget, which we all understand!  Bootstrapping is how the majority of business start out.  We thought it would be fun to chat about where we like to look for deals and what we like to look for.  This is something that we've talked about a few times in the past but the amount of questions we get about tells us it's a very deep topic and needs more attention!
August 13, 2018
For this episode we reached out to our Instagram Stories for some questions.  The response was really great!  We had questions all across the board.  We tried to answer as many as we could in the time we've got and also keep things rolling.  Hope you have fun listening to this one.  It's a little different not having a set topic but that's what makes it fun.  Enjoy everyone!
