On to my next new adventure.  I am going to have a go at learning how to 
weld.  I plan on doing most of this learning on a trial and error basis and 
I intend to read a lot and maybe view videos as a learning 
tool.  Unfortunately I have not been able to find a local school that 
teaches this other than as a full blown class of which I don't want to go 
nine months every day to school.  Although it probably wouldn't hurt me. :>)

My intent is to use this primarily (at least in the beginning) for truck 
and car panel repair, patching, etc.  I do have a couple of old donor cars 
that are ready for the scrap heap and I thought I would practice on them at 

Now for the question.  What type of welding should I start with - mig, tig, 
arc, ???.

After that is determined, I will work on equipment.

Thanks again for all your help.
