WELCOME to the forum Russell.  Hope you enjoy the available resources.

Personally, I am in AZ.  Not much in your line here.  Some pretty active guys on this forum in the areas you need info on.  Hopefully they will jump in here with info for you.

Have a Great Day,  Brent

welcome russel!  I am from the southwest kansas / oklahoma panhandle area and there isnt much of anything going on.  every once in a while i'll get a line leak to go work on, about once a month.  i have heard of some people talking about a new plant being built in anthony kansas that are going to be manufacturing windmill blades.  sorry i cant help you out any more than that.

Parent - - By vantage500man (**) Date 07-26-2009 19:52
well lets have some names and numbers and wage prices and let us make that determination anything is looking good these days you might be helping a few guys on here land a job and saving them from all kinds of bad things.... thank you.... I my self are packing as I type getting ready to move down to the southern states..... 
Parent - - By cwf07 (***) Date 07-26-2009 23:10
Were in the southern states are you going. Their is a pipeline going on here on the east side of Ga. I went over and talked to them and they are welding the pipe with mechanical welders. The company doing the job got their on welder doing the tie end so that cut rig work out on that job. Thank God for bridge work that has kept me going this year.
Parent - - By vantage500man (**) Date 07-26-2009 23:38
well I going to float around until I find where the best place to restart my welding biz... I'm going to look for a weak spot in an area where I can get the most out of my welding biz and go from there... my be mobile, al or shreveport, la or Houston, tx.... I have friends in tx area but just don't know... I have enough moneys to get me down and start looking for two months so will see... The work online that I see is just more plentiful in all the water bordering states... to bad you could not convince them to let you get on that pipe line... I see one blowed up I think these companies are trying to get these jobs done with unskilled pipe welders and I bet my shorts it will not be the last one you see blow up in the near future

I will go where the works at with a smile on my face
Parent - - By chris2698 (****) Date 07-27-2009 01:51
sorry I hate to even say something on here at times i feel like I'm wasteing my time when I see alot of guys on here talking about 95hr and per. and stuff. The way I feel with this crappy economy is you gotta cut back and take a steady pay check at times. I just know of where i work there looking for mig carbon steel welders 20.10 an hour top pay and 4/10's full benefits Textron Marine and Land Systems. There is Northrope gruman like maybe 27 or 32 an hour contractor and i think it's maybe fluxcore or stick and seems like I heard it was maybe 45hr maybe more for tig pipe welders if you work as a contractor but don't hold me to it.

Vantageman what kinda welding do you do?? I have heard from a friend that like alot of the Gulf Coast like where Gulfport MS is and along there is plenty of work. There still rebuilding from Katrina
Parent - - By vantage500man (**) Date 07-27-2009 11:58
