      My guess is that you get enough experience that YOU feel comfortable with calling yourself a Master Welder...and then everybody else thinks you're something special for it.

      I dunno though...maybe there's something I don't know about the term... all I wanna know is if I'd make more money to call myself one.

        Master weldor

        I had a student that dropped out of Tulsa welding School and came to the vo-tech where I teach and Tulsa told him and countless others for $10,000 and six months in their school they would be
        "Master weldors"
        I teach welding but I'm no master.
        If you find one let us know.

            Mike how long after that before you could see again?
            The term Master ( put job description here) is the result of becoming the person that getss called when nobody else knows how to do it.
            Regardless of the field the true "masters " are as rare as oh say Stephen Hawking or Babe Ruth Terry

                    Ya know, the more I think about there's no such thing as a Master Weldor"...I've been around weldors all my life and none were what one would call a Master Weldor, for the simple fact that NO ONE knows all about every process and can make the prettiest welds in all processes, which I would guess that is what a Master Weldor would be doing. I know guys that have mastered many processes, but there is always someone that can do it just a little bit better. The highest compliment that a weldor can recieve is from his peers...those who are doing the same thing that you are. Those kinds of praises are the best, and really makes ya feel real good.

                    For you newbies out there, try and find someone whose welds look fantastic, and then mimick them....that's how you get to be good. I was fortunate to be in a weld shop where there were many weldors and some were downright amazing...so I copied them, as best as I could. My goal was to be just a little better than the next guy, and I was always challenging myself. I heard an engineer tell one of my coworkers that he was the best MIG weldor he had ever seen! WOW! I thought, I want someone to say that about me...a few years later and many spools of wire later someone finally did say that about me, and I'm no master. We all have our heros...if we didn't there would be no reason to try to improve...and there's always room for improvement.
