After years of entertaining the idea of having a welder and recent months spent looking at 110V units, I finally bit the bullet last night and ordered a Hobart 140. Now, I haven't welded anything in 15 years and even then it was just a crash course in my high school shop class. My thoughts are that I will basically teach myself to weld first using the flux core that comes with the machine. I have lots of scrap steel to practice on. Once I get comfortable with that, I'll make a cart for the welder and a gas bottle. By then I feel that I should be pretty comfortable with everything and I'll start in on the cab corners and rockers on my truck (using shielding gas of course). Can anyone else off thier two cents or some tips that will help me get started?
