    Hi to all…

    Quick intro: I’m a semi-retired consultant (computers) and a displaced Nebraskan living in SoCA most of my adult life. Now I ‘work’ as an Artificer and am having a ball learning how to use my hands to do more than type!

    I am a 100% total neophyte regarding tools in general and welding specifically! BUT I am learning. I have a start in a pretty nice machine shop/wood shop/welding shop and am learning fast – mostly by mistakes! Hahaha So far I have all my body parts so I guess that’s a good start?

    I have been reading this board for several months and have learned enough to know I have a long ways to go, but I’ll get there – God willing! Thanks to all you experts that take the time to help those of us just starting out!!!
    Currently playing with:

    HP140, SP140 MIGs

    Abrasive cutters
    Jig, Chop, Table saws
    Angle grinders, drill presses
    Lots of other toys
