From me too - a newcomer to the world of metal, need all the help I can get :D
The first thing Newbies need to learn is that you can make any shape in metal by using five processes,
The hard bit is working out how, when and where to use each of thes methods.
Even with professional lessons it takes many years to become a master, so be patient, methodical and start small,
Make an ashtray first, then try your hand a one off Boat tailed Duesenburg replica :shake:
What I mean is learn the skills on manageable small jobs and then move up to bigger parts,
and keep in mind that most large panels need to be hand formed in many small pieces that are then welded together,
So many Newbies try to make an entire wing in one piece, and just end up quitting where a Pro would do it in five or six parts.
Never tried it and never will but it's good to see how it's done.
