If you’ve ever thought about becoming a metal fabricator, you’ve come to the right post. The attached video will walk you though many of the tips and tricks that go into metal fabrication and should give you a good idea of whether or not it’s a job you would enjoy. It should give you a pretty solid overview of the work and maybe even give you a couple of new techniques to try out.
But before you jump into the video, what exactly is a metal fabricator? A metal fabricator is someone who produces metal pieces and structures by means of cutting, bending, and general assembling. It’s a value-added process which can be broadly defined as the creation of metal structures, parts, and pieces using various raw metals and materials.
Metal fabricators tend to be kinetic and analytical learners — meaning they learn and understand best when they can physically touch and see how something goes together, or when they can understand logically why something works way it does. Mysteries are to be figured out and problems are to be worked around when you’re a metal fabricator.
