    Hi all, Im a 19 year old male. I live in Essex and have always wanted to learn to weld, however I've never really had any reason to weld; however I've recently bought myself a kit car and I'm now looking for a cheap welder to get some practice in on; anyone who knows of one close-ish to Essex I'd be most grateful. Bearing in mind it's gotta be relatively cheap as I've recently been made redundant.

    Cheers for any replies, looking forward to learning :) Anyone nearby - you all seem to be up North somewhere?

    Cheers, Josh. :D

    Welcome Enwod, theres quite a few of us in Essex some just tend to keep a low profile, where abouts are you (town/village name listed in your profile would help)?

    Cheers both;

    zzr, not too far from you. I'm in Tiptree, near Colchester and grew up not too far from you in Leigh on Sea.

    I'll be putting an ad up on that forum.

    Very, very very cheeky of me, so sorry for asking :( But you wouldn't happen to be able to TIG weld Aluminium would you? (I've got two bits of aluminium, about 8 inches long and the only TIG welder I knew has since, I think, packed it up) Feel free to tell me to eff off :laughing:

    Cheers for the welcome though mate.
     
  10. yes enwod, send me a PM.....

    Josh, I have a pal with a mig welder who’ll do it for cheap in Essex, further more I need help from someone who’s got sometime and wants to help fabricate a project , let me know what you think, a lot of YouTube videos out there and you just need some hands on experience.. you’ll get the basics in days.
