    If I do it the price is right, Jennifer's class charges reasonable rates. They have a plasma cam, half the time she claims it not working, if I had a bunch of fab work I would try to get my hands on it.

    Folks - Mrs. Russell teaches (my words, not hers) Agricultural Mechanics (among other things) at a local trade school. She HAS chops well beyond mine in the welding world.

    Minor correction. It's an "normal" high school. She is going to a welding work shop at Lincoln this summer.

    I went in the other day and tried my hand at TIG aluminum was not pretty but I made it stick together and it even held up when I hit it with a hammer. Will need more practice before I am ready to weld on intakes.

    I think women make some damn good welders! When they were putting gas lines in from the wells, my friend was telling me there was this woman welding, she was like a machine just laying down beautiful welds. I was watching Wheeler Dealer. They were working on a V8 Rover and had a set of custom made headers done. The shop building them, I guess the guy's wife was bending the tubing and tig welding it. Her work would have given any guy a run for the money.

She has practiced a lot and even has a certification. Sheet medal is tougher than the thicker stuff.

    Did Jennifer coach you? I hear she's good with a welder.
