Hey everyone, great learning source you all have here. I am very happy I ran across this site. I have been tinkering with metal for ten years now and know some things. By no means would I consider myself an avid metalshaper, or a "professional." That's why I am here.
I am on the path to becoming a professional metalshaper. Next fall I am going to be attending Fay Butlers Metalshaping Seminar and he has been helping me with some questions and giving me advice on what to read. Also, I am on the hunt for a college around here that offers metalworking majors, such as machining, welding, etc. No luck thus far, however, I haven't spoken to any colleges, just surfed websites.
Does anyone know of any other great websites where I can learn more about metalshaping? Is anyone from the Grand Rapids, Michigan area? I desperately need a lesson in TIG welding.
I want to learn everything, so let the lessons begin!!
