The best CRAFT ADVICE is to get HANDS-ON TRIAL & ERROR EXPERIENCE.

Experimenting & working with pieces of metal will build your knowledge and skill as you handle the material.

We have created these articles of introductory advice based on our experience. YouTube and Search Engines are also excellent resources.
