I am a hard working welder fabricator with 3 years of experience in the motorsport sector. Currently working in aerospace/spacecraft. Recently achieving 6g aws d17.1 coding on 718 and 625 inconel and 347 stainless with wall thickness of 0.0023″ to 0.140″ on inconel and 0.0024″ to 0.144″ on 347 stainless steel.
Experience welding and fabricating with aluminium, mild steel, stainless steel, CDV6, Inconel and a small level of experience with titanium and magnesium. I also have some experience welding in an argon chamber and on a turntable. I have worked down to 0.7mm Inconel and up to 8mm in other materials. I can also MIG weld steel components and body shells.
I am experienced in sheet work, tubes, box section, body shells, exhausts, suspension components, press break folding, metal forming and annealing, jig making and exhaust lagging. I always take the opportunity to try new things to learn and progress my skills further so I can be as versatile as possible.
• Coded to 6g on 718, 625 and 347 thin wall.
• TIG welding thin wall Inconel 625 and 718 tube down to 0.7mm
• TIG welding aluminium tube, box, and sheet
• TIG welding a number of different types of stainless tube, box and sheet
• TIG and MIG welding a variety of steels from mild steel to CDV6 dot5 in tube, box and sheet
• Folding all types of aluminium, steel and stainless steel
• Annealing aluminium to fold or form around pressings
• Forming using press tools, rollers and with a shrinker/stretcher
• Ability to learn quickly and work well under pressure
• Welding on a turntable
• Welding, grinding, cutting and repairing steel body shells
• After 2 months of working at SSTT I came up with a much more efficient method of lagging a manifold for a very important customer. I worked alongside the engineer in charge of the project to develop this new method and I used my experience as a welder to come up with a solution that would work well for the heatshield department and the welding department. My idea drastically reduced the time taken to lag a manifold making it possible to not only hit the delivery date on time and increase the quality but also to reduce the labour required to complete the project.
• Always improving jigs where possible to increase accuracy, quality and speed.
• Machining press tools and purge tools to make jobs more efficient and improve quality

• Tig welding and fabricating marine ducting in all positions and on a turntable. 6 inch, 2mm wall tube. Cutting in tube to fit elbows and braided bellows.
• Welding on a turntable with back purge in 5g.
• Welding thin wall tube on a turntable and on the bench.
• Some experience of multipass welding on inconel 625 3mm and 5mm thick with a J prep.
May 2015 – Oct 2015
• Fabricating moulds for the composite department
• Fabricating pit equipment for large racing teams
• Drawing the design in 3D on Solidworks prior to production to ensure the product would meet customer expectations and engineering the components to fit together before the BOM is approved and the part put into production
Heat Shield Fabricator
Feb 2015 – May 2015
• “Lagging” exhaust manifolds for F1 and Indy car teams
• Working alongside and engineer to improve the process and make it faster and a much better quality.
• Applying insulation material to exhaust, pressing the stainless steel into shape, cutting the stainless steel and spot welding to the manifold.
Sept 2012 – Feb 2015
Fabricate components from engineering drawings to a 0.25mm tolerance.
• Fabricate components from a variety of materials using a variety of methods which include; folding (press break, box and pan and fly press), forming with a hydraulic press and with a hammer, rolling, cold and hot cutting and grinding.
• Working alongside engineers on new projects to design a part which not only works for the engineer but is possible to fabricate without investing in new tooling for parts which we will not be making many of.
• Floating between the fabrication department and body shell department to help with the workload.
