WELDING WITH THE FAMILY

Welding runs in this family. Both 5 year old Conner and 7 year old Emma love shadowing their dad in his workshop. And dad has been sure to instill the importance of safety with both of his kids.

He may need a step ladder to get set up (check out time 4:08) but this little guy is taking on big builds, transforming a boring old trike to a drifter.
