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.
We have rules off in the siderbar so please read them before posting anything.

Enjoy the sub.
