Acquisition of more skills and expansion of knowledge makes for a better individual. That is an acceptable idea if how a person can improve himself and make himself better and well rounded. And I think everyone would agree that to improve one’s skills and character should be one of the aims that everyone must have in this life. Most would probably even agree that it should be the norm, and that no one should really be contented with what he has or knows. So it is of no surprise that people are always pursuing to add to their knowledge or to the skills that they possess. There shouldn’t be any surprise to that, and people who aren’t so keen about it should start changing their minds.
I decided that I would do just that and add to the skills that I already posses. The kind of skill that I decided to learn was more on the practical side since I was inclined to do a lot of work around our home. This is both for recreational purposes and also for more serious stuff, like actual repairs of things that need to be mended. For that reason I chose welding, which is in many ways very exciting for me. Choosing it is something of a surprise, even to those who have known me for a long time. They would say that they thought that I did not have the patience or even the slightest inclination to do it. If it was a few years back, they would probably be right, but I have changed a bit since then. My views about the things that I should learn and add to my skill set have also evolved somewhat.
Looking for the Right Welder
It is very common for beginners in welding to ask around or research about the best welders that they can use. As I am still in the learning process, I am interested in knowing as much as I can about the different welding processes there is, although I obviously cannot hope to be adept at all of it in just a short amount of time, for that is just impossible at this point. I’m specifically wondering what kind of welder do I need for steel, since that’s the kind of material that I would like to use first, and then probably aluminum as well. But that would only have to come after I have gained a fair amount of knowledge about properly welding steel, stainless steel.
From what I gathered from my research, it has become clear to me that either a Metal Inert Gas (MIG) Welder or a Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Welder would be just perfect for my needs. Since I am still a beginner, and also for the benefit of all other beginners, it seems that the best option for me would be to use a MIG welder rather than a TIG or any other type of welder. It would also be best for beginners to only go for well known welder brands, and I figured it is just as well since I would at least be getting the best possible quality.
