Tube Maker wanted for training

We are a rib manufacturer looking for a tube maker to train tube welding at our facility for period of 1-2 weeks. We have bought a brand new Miller Weldmaster machine to do the hot air welding. We have been taught to use the machine itself, but now we need to be taught to make tubes
We are located in the Slovenian sea resort town of Portoroz. Very beautiful area. This could be a well paid working vacation for the right person. English or Italian speaker preferred. Training to begin asap.
Take a vacation from your regular tube making job and perhaps find out more about the beauty of Slovenian wine, women and song while earning money at the same time.

I'll come over

I have no idea about building ribs, but I am in Scotland and am often refeRred to as a "tube" .
I think this is a term of extreme reverence and endearment and I think qualifies me for the job of sampling the wine, women and song while being paid!!!
As recently as yesterday I was instructed "Away ya big tube!!"....which I think is a even bigger compliment, inferred travel and I am obviously ascending the ranks. If I become a "tube maker", does that make me boss?
Where do I apply!!! LOL

You are obviously not going to be using Hypalon which is the most common fabric in the UK - WHY?

I admit the ad was a bit over the top, but thanks for your enthusiastic responses...especially the big tube!

I guess I was not really surprised that no real makers of tubes replied. They are few and faaaaaar between.

We think PU is as good as Hypalon, much easier to construct which means lower costs and lower rib prices. We currently use Pennel&Flipo--the best but considering everything, Hypalon tubes cost too much.
