American Welding Society Forum
new member, looking for work single hand or preferably running my rig
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.
what about texas or louisiana
there's some work around shreveport louisiana,i've heard theres some drilling going on and some pipeline work.
any names and numbers please
not much going on in East Texas ,obama tock office ,like all work can to a stop ,
thank all of you for your replies
anybody got leads on work anywhere.names and numbers deeply appreciated.in a bad bind for work.
you and me both buddy sucks here to in michigan
there are some jobs here for welders in Louisiana but not for the kinda money you all are gonna want to make
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.....
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.
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
had a company man come through the yard talkin about a 24'' east of tulsa, that is gonna start in oct. i know thats far away but i will get contact info.
any numbers would be nice thank you
any good rig welders going to travel for work right now I will do it with no winning at all believe me
I will go where the works at with a smile on my face
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
thank you chris Ya I see all that on Line but again I am going to have to be there in there face to get those jobs will see and thank you
