    I think that you should try to think about what you want as your END. do you want to run a shop that does custome metal fab, or do you want something, as an apprentice, you need to figure that what your doing is a MEANS to that END

    Does that confuse you enough? maybe a start :)

    There's not going to be many here that have a lot of knowledge on those subjects. It ultimately comes down to what YOU want and where YOU want to be. Personally I'd probably chose the eletrician end just because I like that stuff.

    ya thanks guys, i chose to go the electrician route. im gonna take a 1.75$ pay cut, and i was just about to get a raise, but in the end i think electrician would be better for me.

    Depends upon your intelligence. Would you rather be electrocuted or lose your hand in a sheetmetal brake? If I had it to do over, I would probably look at plumbing. They make bank and don't have to do much heavy lifting.

    :rofl: dirty jobs guy asked a plumber "tell us something we don't know about plumbers" and he didn't hesitate when he said "plumbers don't bite their fingernails."

    Fuck. That.
