About Phil Warnecke
A handyman by trade, Phil has been welding for over 40 years, mainly cars, but also household projects like gates, fences, posts and beams. Over the years, he has taught basic welding leisure classes to novices, but the escalating prices for machines, gas, and even steel has almost stopped hobby welding courses.
New inverter technology has made the machines lighter, smaller, cheaper, and provides a more stable arc, making them easier to use. So home welding is affordable again, and Phil is leading the charge.
