Fabricating A Future
 
Fabricating A FutureStuck in a dead-end job, Ariana Fonoti struggled each day to support herself while dealing with a boyfriend who didn’t support her or her dreams. By the time her daughter was born, the young mother had reached the breaking point with the path her life had taken and decided to do something about it. When Becky Reeves-Kanipe’s husband was laid off from his job as an iron worker, she took action, leaving her office job behind to help her husband start his own business – and in the process she discovered her true career path. What was the unlikely catalyst that helped transform these lives? A welding torch

Enterprise High School Rebuilds Welding Program
 
Enterprise High School Rebuilds Welding Program On March 1, 2007, the community of Enterprise, Ala., encountered the unthinkable - an EF4 tornado decimated the town’s high school, killing eight students and injuring more than 150 others. While no one will ever forget the tragic loss, the school and community have shown great strength and resilience in the recovery process. And, with the support of the community and industry partners, Enterprise High School began to rebuild. Here's how they did it

FCAW-S Basics: Fast, No Gas Cylinders Required
 
FCAW-S Basics Self-shielded flux-cored arc welding (FCAW-S) wire is the industry’s multitasker. All at once, it produces its own shielding to help protect the arc, handles contaminants on the steel, deposits weld metal that meets structural requirements, and forms a fast-freezing slag over the weld metal. FCAW-S is more like shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), or stick, and less like other gas-shielded wire processes. Welders experienced in SMAW often pick up FCAW-S quickly, while those who know only short-circuit gas metal arc welding (GMAW) may take a little longer. Read more about FCAW-S

Welding Project: Kitchen Island
 
Kitchen IslandThis kitchen island was built by Jim Cirbus using a Lincoln Precision TIG 185 (current model is a Precision TIG 225). The custom-built kitchen island has a granite top. The legs were made from 1.75" x .090 walled HREW tube, the horizontal members were 1" square tube (16 gauge) and the twisted, scrolled, and rolled pieces were half inch solid. Additionally, there were some cold rolled 1/4" square and 1" x 1/8" straps forming the bottom of the shelves for the baskets. The finished product was powder coated.
