We have a Discord channel, there are sometimes actual, live people in there, go say hi!

THIS IS NOT AN ENGINEERING RESOURCE!

While we're more than willing to assist with a plethora of questions and problems, if you're building anything that would otherwise require an engineer's stamp on it, don't take a chance. Just as /r/health isn't an alternative to a doctor, we are not an alternative to an engineer, any ideas here MUST be run through proper channels. Any dangerous or questionable advice will be summarily removed.

Modifications to vehicles beyond bodywork:

Anything to do with the frame of a vehicle, roll cages or any integral safety component on a car should be done by a qualified welder/mechanic unless you have a VERY good insurance policy. See the above section, if you don't know, take it to someone and find out. As much as we are able to help, we are anonymous strangers who you have no recourse against if something goes wrong. A highway or raceway is not the place to test your garage hero welding skills. (this notice is subject to change)


PLEASE NOTE:


There is a subreddit for welding employment:

/r/weldingjobs

Welcome to /r/Welded! Grab your welding gear and let's get started. [Mod Post]

How was this sub formed?

Well, after some jerks from /r/Welding began criticizing my photo of a weld I did some years ago, I thought, "I should make my own welding sub.where this won't ever happen."

Were all at different skill levels. Some grasp welding better than others.
