Not to criticize, but there are a few on here that get their shorts in a wad any time someone new asks a dumb question. Do they forget that they were young or inexperienced once too? I don't weld, but I sure liked some of Lanse's projects. If I did weld, they gave me some ideas. I remember when he was "kind of nerdy" too. But as others have said he has grown a lot. Someday he will be in high demand for his welding skills. I could see him in a mobile welding service to the farming community.
