    Here is a good place to start

    This is a very broad and deep subject

    you will need to start at a corner and nibble slowly..

    if you try to swallow it whole you will surely choke

    so... take your time and digest it... bit by bit..

    If your local community college has a welding program... that is an excellent way to get high quality hands on training at an affordable price...

          No such thing as a perfect shop for all tasks. Decide what you like to work on, piddle with or whatever it is you want to do in your shop and make it where man stuff happens. Argh argh argh.
