Very new to frame building. Took two different ~100 hour frame building workshops in the past year, and would like to build a shop of my own in my backyard.
I have a 8' x 16' concrete slab in my yard. I also have a great TIG unit that pulses and is a champ. Also a junky MAPP unit. That's all I have.
I don't even have a bench, or a vise, or any tools except for a few old files. Everything in my workshops was obviously provided for me as a part of my tuition.
My time and interest would be to improve my skills and build 2-3 bikes a year.
What would the start-up cost be for a basic, simple shop if you already had a good welder but nothing else?
