Welders of Instagram: @moser_fab

Over the past few weeks, we've been talking with and sharing some work from some top notch welders and fabricators. This week, we worked with @moser_fab to bring you some top notch eye candy. Jason is widely regarded as a jack of all processes, so we were especially interested to hear how he got his start and his advice to up-and-comers.
Moser_fabWeld.com:  When did you know you wanted to be a welder?

@Moser_fab: Growing up as a teenager, by brother in law owned a body shop. I worked summers there pushing a broom, cleaning shop and helping out. He eventually started teaching me a little about welding and the basics. The rest is History so to speak, I have been at it ever since.

Weld.com: Do you have any formal training in welding or fabrication?
@Moser_fab: I have taken a few welding courses at our local community college, but that was after I was already welding for a living. I took the courses to get an advantage over other applicants for advancement in my company's job network. However, most of my experience is OTJ, real world experience. 

Weld.com: What type of work and what processes do you use in your day to day activities?
@Moser_fab: I work for a State D. O. T. and run my own business as well, and occasionally for other local welding shops. I work a lot of heavy equipment as you would imagine, but I love to build custom furniture and lighting, as well. I work a lot of MIG, Stick, and TIG. I'm handy with a torch and plasma as well.

Weld.com: What's the best and worst part of your job?
@Moser_fab: I would say the best part of my job(s) is the variety. It is the spice of life, ya know? The worst part of my day job is we have quite a few bush hogs and they are a constant thorn in my side. Hahaha 

Weld.com: What advice do you have for high school students or anyone looking to enter into a welding career?
@Moser_fab: My best advice for any beginner or anyone for the matter is the best advice given to me decades ago. THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR HOOD TIME ✔. All that other stuff will work itself out if you put the hours, days, weeks, months, years under the lid. Don't get discouraged, it will come. 

Weld.com: Where can people get more information or get in touch with you?
@Moser_fab: You can find me on Instagram @ Moser_fab. There is a link to my website there as well.
