For our July issue, the team at FAB Shop Magazine was feeling patriotic. With a focus on “Made in America,” we spoke with a handful of fabricators that see value in making their products stateside. We also got the chance to learn about an innovative welder that solved a common problem with his very own torch design. And to keep that American dream alive, there’s also an article about a school in California that is educating the next generation of manufacturers.
