Having over 25 years of experience in welding and fabrication in southern England, my love of welding and metal work came from designing and building custom motorcycles in the 1980's and gaining many top awards and magazine coverage for my efforts.
My employment in the welding industry has been wide and varied. From working in a small forge in the idealic setting of the New Forest, to being a pipe welder for the petrol/chemical industry.

Pipe welding for British Aerospace (B.A.E.). Welding and installing Autoclaves which are large pressure vessels for curing carbon fibre for Le Mans Series and F1 companies.
I have found my home in France and a more relaxed way of life, and now I would like to continue to share my experiences and knowledge.
