I'm learning to weld and all sorts of fun things with metal, and I need some basic plans for what to build, and more importantly, where I can get steel for cheap. I have plans already for a welding table, a roller stand, and a few other things, and I'd eventually like to build a full cage for my truck, but before i jump into that, I need to make sure my welds will pass inspection. So, if you have any ideas, drawings, or other such projects, I'd appreciate them. Today I was doing a little bit of steel testing by heating it up with a torch until it pooled, then letting it cool again, just to see how long it should take to puddle when I'm stick welding. Checking out colors and such... well, I already had my first accident, and I'm lucky I'm not dead. I was cutting with the torch, and a piece of slag landed right on the O2 line from the torch. It melted the line, and all I can say is that I'm damn lucky I didn't melt the Acetylene line, or I'd have gone BOOM... Anyway, I'm having fun testing the limits of the metal for now, and doing little practice welds on scrap, but I'm going to want to build that welding/cutting table very soon. I don't have any idea where to get steel from around here.
