I am Here

I am here...

As the footprints in the sand that lead to one set, or the good Samaritan who carried the injured to help.
At times when we feel low, the words "I am Here" can be the most comforting. Whether it is coming from a fireman,

Good ways to clean slag?

I am planing on making a bunch of these little stick figures from nails and washers (and any thing else that I may find.) I am still practising my welding technique. These are stick welded with 1/16" E6013 on an AC welder. So with time the welds should start to look better. However I need to figure out some better ways to clean up the figures before coating them. I plan on a light coat of WD40 rubbed in for now. I may also paint some of them. So far I just chip at them with a chisel and wire brush.

I guess this is where I start. If not, let me know.
Anyways, I am welding instructor at the local community college. I originally got into welding because I enjoy doing art and would like to do more metal art. I have not gotten any further into art and welding than I did 10 years ago. Anyways I was hoping someone could let me know what types of materials you are using and how you are putting them together, for instance maybe you are using gas welding or brazing to make copper roses. I find it fun and would like to bring a class to our school once I get a good understanding and reference of how metal and art can be applied and talk my dean into it. I am also interested in taking some classes, I am in the Southern California area if anyone knows of any good sessions going on.
