Get yourself learnedified!

One focus of this here particular blog is the heavier side of DIY, which includes welding and metal working. I have learned more from this guy’s YouTube channel than you can imagine and here’s his MIG welding 101 videos that he just put out. Good sh…. stuff here!

As things progress I really want to highlight the difference between a skilled hobbiest and a master craftsman. I can weld, use machine tools, and make stuff without too much difficulty. Now ask me to throw down a TIG weld on stainless that will pass an x-ray test or to machine a precision taper on an old Bridgeport and I’ll look at you with an odd expression. But, by watching and learning from the masters we mere mortals can learn some really neat things and create some things we can be proud of.
