Mother's day gift - learning to WELD !
That's what I Asked for ..... welding lessons for mom's day ! My son is an iron worker and certified welder - he spent the whole day over here teaching me to weld. I bought all the equipment - I'm having a ball doing it !
( I actually learned pretty fast ,too ) Now that I know how to do it ...... where can I find scrap steel ? I know you can buy it - but I'd love to find the odd looking pieces to weld into yard art ( or something ) I Can't handle the huge stuff - or rip stuff apart ( like washers ) that people give away for free. All the scrap yards here seem to be automotive parts and they don't let you wander through them anymore ( insurance reasons I guess ) So - where do I find scrap steel ? **** Here's a pic of me and my son teaching me . I'm the one on the left with the gray hair & green welding jacket ~ LOL .Can you help me ??? As always - thank you so much !
