I have a hockey helmet. I will wear it when I feel at risk of hockey pucks flying by at 50+ mph while on a bike ride.

Did you remove the chain ? Is it the same chain or a replacement ?
Pedal backwards by hand slowly, and look closely at the chain. Is it going over a "tab" that it should be under , or the opposite ?

I liked TIG welding. Learned a bit fixing copper-tungsten ECM tooling, and played around with aluminum bike bits for fun.
I like the control with TIG.
Never tried much stick or wire feed.

Some Chainring and cassette teeth often look more worn than others, but are intentionally cut differently to aid in shifting. The smaller teeth help the chain grab during a shift.

Try to "soft pedal" as you shift to the smaller front chainring. This makes the chain less taut, so easier for the derailleur to move it.
