Welding/Fabrication & handyman services Cambodia

Post by Ras »

G'day everyone

I've just started a welding/fabrication and handyman services in Sen sok, Cambodia,

I've been in the metal industry for over 12 years, have experience in Mining, oil & gas, transport (big semi trailers), structural steel, food, repairs, maintenance, and shutdowns,

I can build metal fencing, wood fencing, deckings, patios, sheds, some concreting, I am not limited to just steel so feel free to ask me for your job requirements,

I am setup to weld tig stainless steel, tig Aluminum, tig carbon steel, stick weld stainless and steel, pipe welding, structural steel welding, just message me and I will get back to you.

Hello Michael, hope it will get off the ground and make a living for you. I always liked working with metal. The shops I have seen in SR had plenty of material, few tools and tried their best. Workmanship wasn't of top quality. There is only one, bit further out of the city, that is very tidy and does good work.
In Cambodia there is need for this type of work and more and more they will have to go for quality.
There is a German guy in Siem Reap who repairs bikes, motorbikes, tour trailers and quads. Anything, really. Does good work and trains young locals along the way. His training is well noted and possibly generates extra income one way or another. He, like you is trained and qualified and displays the approprite certificates. I am just throwing this in as an idea. The young locals are eager, and really help him. They are not ot just in his way as so often happens. Best of luck, it can be done.

Are you taking very small projects ?
I have a nice polished metal desk lamp of which I broke the bulb protective 1/3 of a sphere glass. the glass was attached to a metal base screwing on the lamp.
I was thinking it might get repaired by welding a new metal part to replace the former glass.
If such a project is of any interest to you, I can make more explicit pictures to post here.

Sometimes I am amazed at the skills [ and stupidity ] of the welders in some of the motor repair shops here. I have seen them welding broken pistons and cylinder sleave liners of truck engines, and also worn out or broken teeth on a gear .
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I was actually starting in SR but decided more opportunities in PP so moved here overnight, I only know of the Iron workshop which I never got to see but I drove past a few times, I definately will help the locals to learn the trade, As most tradies here they never had training at college but learn on the job over the years tacking fences and roofing and they ask me how long did you train for, I tell them almost 4 years and after 4 years in Australia you pretty much are still a novice in the steel game, It takes many years and probably a lifetime to learn this trade and pretty much why the lack off skills and quality in this unfortunate country,

Thanks for your ideas I will take them onboard and try my best to bring some Australian standards here.

You can send me a few pictures off the broken bit and I'll tell you what can be done.

I think I know which Iron workshop you mean. Have been there a couple of times. And I agree, SR is for a visit and PP for business. Same for me. :thumb:
