When Josh (@microarcwelder) was 13, he watched a lot of Jesse James’ show, along with West Coast Choppers & Monster Garage. That experience sealed the deal for him – he knew what he wanted to do as a career. On his 14th birthday, Josh’s dad gave him a small Lincoln MIG welder, but neither of them knew how to use it. Luckily, his Uncle had a welding shop. Once he saw the micro welding process he was fixated on it. Josh has never taken a welding course and since he started welding full time he has gone more into micro TIG welding, mostly using lasers. Cheers to Josh and to all the Tradesmen & Women whose passion for their work inspires each of us.
