Plasma cutters

Man, I just discovered plasma cutters. Now I'm Jones'n to learn how to weld stuff.

Of course, my inner economist snorts at the notion. My inner economist is well aware that specialization in areas where I have a competitive advantage is the best path to wealth, and learning how to weld and use a plasma torch probably isn't an area where I would have such an advantage. But much as I might wish it were so, I have great difficulty in specializing in just one thing.
