Dear Pythonauts,
After 70+ years of cycling I bought a rear-drive under-steer Actionbent 
recumbent  <www.actionbent.com> and now have more than 32,000 km virtually 
trouble free. It is a delight to ride - so why should I pine for a python? But 
I do. Even now in my 81st year.
I have a garage load of scrap bikes and parts but no welding experience and a 
budget that will not stretch to TIG nor MIG.
I can buy a "buzz-box" new for $79 or an AC/DC welder for $104.
Is DC a real advantage?
I have some confidence that by sufficient trial and error on scrap tubing I can 
teach myself to weld - classes at a distant technical college are not practical 
for me.
If any have the time to advise on how "to get my feet wet" I will be most 
Regards to all
Brian in SC USA
