One or the either. When you test several floors at once a little head pressure builds up.

Being a second year apprentice and the size of there shop odds are they will not put you in a situation where you can fail. Pay attention and work hard, you can learn a lot quick from others.

Haven't done a lot of cast, maybe a couple hundred feet, just hope not to mess up to bad.

Any advice on moving to big companies from a small one, and cast iron tips for someone rusty would be appreciated.
Martin pedersen? Ahern?

Lol it is. Going from a shop where we barely had any tools at all, to a huge shop like this. It's a great opportunity, but total change from what I'm used to.

Like most guys said though I'll probably be the grunt cutting pieces etc... I'm fine with this. Being in a small company before, I was doing a lot of the pipe fitting work. Measurements, jump overs etc. usually it was me and the fitter on a job, and that was it. So a lot more responsibility.

Glad to hear it's not just me who forgets stuff on top of the ladder. Did the same thing with a 14" Ridgid pipe wrench. Had it bounce off the top of my head.
