  3. I've been reading through these topics and it seems a lot of people need welding tips, well I don't mean to brag but I'm a certed master MIG and TIG welder with over 7 years experience in the field, I know all positions and every joint weld you probably could think of including the settings the machines need to be on to weld correctly, my friends tell me I could TIG weld aluminum foil in hurricane winds but if y'all need any tips that don't have answers shoot me a PM, just trying to help I love to weld its one of my passions and would love to answers questions just putting it out there for y'all
  4. Hey guys!I've been really interesting in learning how to do forging and smithing and all that good stuff for quite a while now and am finally going to make the leap and try and do it. Just wanted a few tips for ways to make a forge, and for tools and equipment that would be good to use, especially something as an anvil, because I don't wanna throw a lot of money at this yet because I haven't done it and wanna figure out a way to try it out relatively inexpensively. Any help or tips you guys have to offer for just starting out as far as what I need and can use for starting up and learning would be incredibly appreciated. Thanks!
