Hey There , I wanna welder that sounds like bacon sizzling and smells like smoked peppered bacon and doesn't catch fire!! Is that to much to ask ?? No i am not wet behind the ears ,wearing a soggy diaper , but i maze well be when it comes to welding experience,, anyways i am experienced self learner haahaa. After much reading and reading, i will most likely start with a Mig/stick or Multi,, it won't be for business just for repairing and any project i want to do,, i don't want to start with a small unit and work my way up , although that would be easier to learn i suspect. Great forum. ! Thks.
