Beginning Welding with Jim
Sunday, January 29, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PST)
Impress your friends, your brother, or that cute barista with your tough new skill. Learn how tojoin steel using MIG and flux core welders. In addition to learning some basic techniques for cutting, prepping, and finishing your material, you will get oriented to the metal shop and learn some basic safety rules to keep you coming back alive.
After completing the course, students receive a shop pass for one Metal Wednesday session to practice skills or work on personal projects.
*** We have safety gear, but bring your own thick leather gloves and safety glasses if you have them. Also, please wear thick work pants (like jeans) and boots. Sneakers and polyester have a tendency to melt and disappear when they come into contact with sparks, and gosh that hurts/is embarassing. Wear long sleeves (trust us, you don't want a suntan). ***
