Duno if anyone sugested this or not,but when I was first learning stick we used to take college rule loose leaf paper and turn the lines up verticle,grab a new pencil by the eraser end and weave bewteen the lines,works real good if you simulate the wieght of the rod holder and welding lead or if you have one stick the pencil in the rod holder and go at it.

Oxy-acet welding is fun to learn and will help with all other types of welding. Learn to watch the puddle and play the torch and filler rod to control the heat. You can learn a lot by just running a puddle on very thin sheet metal. That will help you learn the different heat ranges for the puddle.

oxy-acetylene is a vastly underrated & underused process in my humble opinion. Its quick, simple & cheap and in many respects more versatile than traditional arc (i.e. for dissimilar metals, castings, etc).

Sure, TIG is king but I think you got to go along way to beat "trusty ol' gas" !!

Take care,
