    Well, im 20 here, just more of a handy man around the house, doing things small time for now, moving outlets, putting new ones in, taking down basement non-supporting walls, and working on fixing it up for when my family sells it away.

    I was recently asked to join the pipe-fitters union, but i'm just gonna stick it out in college.

    Any questions, or talk let me hear what you got lol.

    Hello Anthony:
    I totaly agree with the college education but I would not easily blow off the membership in the Pipe Fitters. Having both would bring lots of job security and a handsome income. Very few are invited to join the Fitters.

    Great time to start learnin...try www.jlconline.com to start. And check out any books you can from your local library...free.:D
    Then you will be really ahead of the game, come game time.
