Super down to earth, will talk to anyone about anything, and his skills are unbelievable.All in all a totally kick ass weekend and I would do it all over again.

    this workshop sounds great, quick question what is the skill level a student should have? is this class for beginners and does each student need to know how to weld? thanks for your time.
