In 1990, I owned a welding company. A homeowner's association called me to weld some lock boxes on their tennis courts. It was a good profitable job. Yesterday, I returned to that property to do a HOA analysis, and wanted to see if my boxes were still there, and wondered what my welding looked like after twenty-two years of exposure, and what I looked like as a welder twenty-two years ago. All the boxes were typical of this one, at least my part of the weld. It was 6011, stinger negative, 3/32" run vertical downhill.
The second weld was by someone who sealed the gate.
It is nice to look back. Some of my gates and artwork is still visible in Las Vegas, and my work will be visible at Hoover Dam for many more years.
