This one is making Michael look like TC's own  porn star from the 70's. You know the old tapes, " Confessions of a Plumber"?! Ahem! Anyway...

I’ll have you know I can even lead burn (weld) I’m not sure if that’s a requirement to be a porn star or not 🤣🤣🤘💪

yes John I couldn’t agree more, I used to do quite a bit of lead burning and it definitely made learning tig welding easier to master. Still do the odd bit of lead burning. Did a four aprons fairly recently, really enjoyed getting my hand back in. However I think the only star I’ll ever be is a PAWN star 😁😉🤘

OOOOO stop it all you men with your manly skills. Actually I am jealous as I have never learned to weld.

I'm blaming the education I received - no metalworking, no woodworking and no girls at my secondary school! But we did have 2 years of Latin so, very usefully, I can tell you, Ego sum welder (I am not a welder) ??

I did gas and arc welding at college but haven't touched it since. I do have an old basic arc welder but have never found the need to use it, which is probably just as well...

It became a sixth form college the year I left 1974, but any true Old Pavior will tell you that was not the real High Pavement. It is a large housing development now.

My New Year's resolution is to get a bottle of gas and a regulator for my mig that I've had over a year now. The 4 welds I've made on my bike have all been done in a haze of smoke, making the shed look like a drugs den and may explain why my welding looks like it's been done by a monkey on crack 🙊💩🙄🤪😁
