    Even the most rudimentary class can teach you something.

    Promise.
    The more classes you take, the more you learn that you don't know as much as you think you do. Take any class that you can.

    There is a trick to this field and it's pretty simple. Mouth shut, ears open, cell phone in the truck and learn from other people's mistakes along with yours.

    You'll know when supertek is being serious, there won't be 10 !!!! after the sentence!

    I had a 75HP screw, take out a 90 on the discharge line after 2 days of run time, and after a standing pressure test, 2 1/8 long radius.

    I failed to get the silfos deep into the slip of the joint..................bye bye 500lbs of r-507.
    Who paid for all that gas?

    Why didn't you clean it up real good and use the 45% silver with flux?

    15sil is standard.

    second repair, has held since then...........with the braze througout the slip it will not be a problem now.

    Moral, I think of myself as a competent welder, but now and then we all get a slice of humble pie.

    I am 31 but went to college after I got out of high school. Not saying I regret anything but wish I had saved myself some money. But I guess everything happens for a reason. Thats where I met my wife.

    You might have the basics covered in the feild and to some thats all they need but for around my area you cant even take the test for a licsense without classroom theroy. It may be the same thing over and over again but thats part of the process. I have a hard time with classrooms and trying to learn from a book that some guys reads out of, im much better with hands on training but you need that classroom theroy to really help out in the field.
