    I've worked with lots of divers over the years, on one project I had 8-divers and tenders working for me. We had 2-decompression chambers on board. Deepest dive was 215-feet. But they were on gas, at that depth. Spent most of their day staging up and down. Then hours in the chamber. 3 of the divers had worked in the north sea. Yep great stories they have!

    Nice brother in law.
    If you buy yourself a tig torch set and lease an argon tank you can start learning how to tig weld also.(carbon and stainless)
    You won't have the best arc and heat control but you will have fun.
    you may never want to stick weld again.
    I have several mig welders, stick and tig.
    Just me, I prefer to tig most of the time.
    Congrads on your new welder.
    You need to buy your brother in law a beer.
