    The welding course I took was more trail and error anyway, do a weld, if it pass go to the next, if it doesn’t retry.

    I suppose it's like that with most skilled trades. Very common amongst welders, machinists, mechanics, construction workers, etc. I'm a moderator on a machinists forum. So annoying to see guys saying "well I have 40 yrs experience so I'm right blah blah" lol.

    My lil brother is just the know it all type. Thinks he knows everything just by researching. I love the guy, he's my brother but damn is it annoying. Lol

    I have a cheap brand new Lincoln flux core welder that my buddy gave me but I'm no welder. All my brother does is talk crap about it. Yeah I get it no gas sucks but again he's a "professional" welder with no welder & only college course experience. Haha

    Self taught with no YouTube when I was learning. Just weld,make adjustments to the welder and your technique and it will happen.

    Same thing happened to me. I fell into welder deal. Either sell it or learn to use it. I decided to learn to use it. The skill is still making me all sorts of play money.

    Ten minutes ago I got hit up to make a grill. It will take me 2 hours and I'll put $300 in my pocket.

    @Speedytech7

    Looks like my email was compromised in the past, which is a shame. I've had the same one for ten years.

    Here's the response from Zuk, all in all it should be total $1,755 for a 4.88 gear swap.

    What email provider do you use? If you have a company email (like for your auto horns) that might be why it was flagged as spam.

    I was using my personal gmail email, I've had issues with email spoofing in the past. I believe my email was part of the Adobe leak a few years ago.

    Sometimes it's the wording of the email that causes the receiver's email provider to flag it as spam...if there's some mention of a product in it or something. It's dumb but usually the system is pretty good at determining what is and what isn't spam.

    Let's scratch the locker idea, that would probably add $1,500 to the total cost.
