Don,you have done really well inspite of not welding....If you did learn, try learning TIG for in the shop work.You have wide varity metals you can do.With bronze
rod you can even weld copper....
At the same time,that sheet metal shop probably had a CNC plasma torch cutting it out...something else to know if you did learn welding.To help you "cookie cutter" parts from your layup drawings and raw metal sheet /plate stockpile.
If you do machinist work, welding will come in handy for the your fixtures and tooling as well.
In the short term,if you don't do very much...letting the guys named, might work out cheaper than rigging up a shop for that.
If you were closer to Nacogdoches...wouldn't might helping out sometime.
