I'm looking to get into welding, not a profession but as a skill and a hobby. I'm looking for anyone around the south jersey or central jersey area who wants to take a day or two and show me the basics about welding (arc, mig, or tig). I'm working on a Ford 8.8 build and need to weld the tubes, but I would myself like to have the experience in welding so I can fab further on down the line.
I don't have a welder (I have an arc but I don't know the condition), but I can provide my own safety equipment plus materials. I'm also willing to provide some compensation for your time if you're willing to help me out ($$$, food, beer, whatever).
