Huge aircraft such as these are delivering relief food, medical supplies and construction goods to weather related disasters such as Puerto Rico and other areas. The planes are aging, so new units will be needed to replace them. Skilled engineers, welders, and assemblers will be needed for these well paying careers.
Here is an example of tig welding stainless piping. This is typical for water treatment plants, power plants, food, wine, distilleries and so forth. Heavy wall piping would be used for steam or high volume water or petroleum products transfer. Welding process known as SMAW or stick welding would be used there.
This is one of dredge barges that I welded together during the Onondaga Lake Clean Up project in Syracuse. Using SMAW process, this took about a week to complete.
With the increased popularity of craft beers, new breweries are sprouting up across the nation. Highly skilled welders with tig welding skills can demand high wages working for contractors in distilleries, wineries, and food process plants.
Men and women alike succeed at careers in welding. Many achieve six figures after enrolling in certified apprenticeships sponsored by manufacturers and contract organizations.
A flashback to when I was new on the job at the BOCES weld lab. Here I am building a rack for the wood shop teacher.
Repairs can be made on aluminum handles of power tools. Keep your favorite old machines and have them restored!
Commercial building foundations are built several stories below grade or street level. Sturdy temporary structures are welded and braced to provide a safer environment for workers.
One of my associates practicing TIG welding. I would later recommend him for a welding educator position in Plattsburgh.
Our 2002 welding graduates went on to become skilled Ironworkers erecting many buildings and bridges across the northeast. Here they are preparing equipment to work on the Carrier Dome at Syracuse University.
