Yes, thanks for the tip.  I already do have that book and it's a good 
starting point for learning all phases of welding.  Unfortunately, it does not 
address the TIG set-up required for mild steel and that lead to my post earlier 
today.  When I wanted to learn how to run a "Heliarc" welder, I took a 
one-semester TIG class at the local JC.  Fantastic opportunity to learn something in a 
controlled environment.  It was also fun slipping in the the restroom in the 
high-rise building where I worked and changing from my suit into welding clothes 
before leaving for the evening class.  "Made me feel like Clark Kent!
