onyerleft, I never took a class, however I do have a high level of mechanical ability so I just jumped in and purchased a set of tanks, regulator, hoses and tips. About $500 in 2001. The hand tools are ones I have had for about ever including files from a neighbor that he had forever and are now about 60 years old! In no way could a pro-level shop operate on this equipment, but it is enough to build a frame or two a year should you have time and willingness to do it. I have built one frame, repaired 3 and helped a buddy build one for himself. Currently I am on a second frame that has taken 8 months thus far and am getting close to being done. Was going to build a track frame for my son, however I don't trust my abilities enough to handle the high stress of the track racer. It is all good fun.
