    Hi, I'm Diego and I'm a Chilean Welder/Fabricator living in Melbourne. I've got qualifications from the Chilean AWS chapter (Indura Chile). (Mild steel, stainless and aluminium Tig, Mig, Stick and oxy)
    I like creating tools, motorcycles and structural steel fabrication and installation.
    I'm currently using a WIA stick welder supplied by the employer, which is not bad at all. I run it with 7016 ranging 90 to 120 amps reverse polarity.
    At the Factory we have Unimig (jasic rebranded), WIA and a couple of Hitachi Mig welders.
    Anyways, thanks a lot and have a good day!

    I'm trying to figure out how to upload pics. I'm pretty sure that there must be an explanatory post about it somewhere here so I'll look for it

    On my computer, after I'm finished typing in a message, I click on the "Upload a File" next to "Post Reply", then chose a photo and click on it, click on open to attach it, then click on "Post Reply"; done.

    Thank you for the suggestion. Not sure which one you were referring to, but I had a look on Google Earth and noticed there are quite a few sectors. Santiago is a big city, but those further south look more appealing to me for a Holiday.
