In this all day mig/tig combo class, visiting artstar Jim Tensen will walk you through everything you need to successfully learn to weld. First, you'll learn about the MIG machine: how the welder works, all about shielding gasses and general safety, then you'll move on to tacks, butt joints, fillet welds, etc.. Finally, Jim will show you how to visually inspect and test your welds. You'll also learn how to cut and grind your steel.
The you'll do it all again with the TIG welder.
This all day combo class is a first for Madagascar Institute and we're super excited about it. Hopefully it will be a big success and we'll have more like it. No previous welding experience neccessary.
You'll have a lunch break half way between, but there's alot to learn, so plan on being pretty busy all day.
There are places to buy water and sandwiches near the shop but not a whole lot of options, so bring what you think you'll need for a day of welding. Lunch, water, snacks....
Wear long pants, closed toe shoes, bring long sleeves, and prepare to get dirty!
$110 with $15 materials fee.
