Yesterday I did spent at a "welding academy" where an experienced welder teached me one-on-one during 2 sessions of 3 1/4 hours. I must admit this was the best €250 I've spent on a hobby. Since I've only had some practise at home laying beads and welding up a square made out of 25x25x3 tubing my skills were very limited. During one day he took me through a dozen exercises from laying beads to butt joints over tee joints to a try at a vertical corner joint (if that's the proper naming). The most challenging (except for the vertical weld) was the tee joint with a "waving" sheet as the vertical part. Twisting my wrist for the outside turn went well, but the inside turn was a real challenge and I only managed to do a "faultless" weld on 1 piece out of 6. As a fun moment, I was invited to make a few welds with an industrial sized pulsed welder. That one had a lot of power, sir! If you can find someone near that is willing to teach you one-on-one, I can only recommend grabbing the opportunity! - Niels Some work pieces after the first session. I'm not proud of a few attempts, but I'm sure proud of what I've achieved after a day of learning! Handling a big torch!
