Can women learn welding? * CERTAINLY! * Watch these 2 videos via YouTube: (1st is about women discussing welding jobs)(The second video shows a young lady instructing a guy how to wire-feed weld): Video 1: WELDING WOMEN video Video 2: Lady instructs guy in wire-feed welding, video After welding, metal won’t stay together, why? * The rod: same material that you’re welding?
