This class will introduce some of the basic features of welding to a complete beginer. We will talk about technique, preping for welding, and most importantly safety. This will be a 2 session class lasting 4 hours each session, starting on January 30th at 10am. I would recommend bringing a lunch or a snack, as we will try to go till at least 2pm.
The welding class will include the following:
- Metal Inert Gas / Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG / GMAW)
- Wirefeed welding
- 1 day for open session/projects
- Basic skills
- Grinding, chopping, etc.
- Plasma Cutting
- Personal Protective Equipment
January 30, Day 1: Intro, cover basic technique, review safety (PPE), lay a bead of weld down. Review push/pull welding methods, holding MIG gun and begin welding stuff together. We will review weld penetrations, technique, etc.
Febuary 5, Day 2: Plasma Cutting, Grinding, and Welding Practice / Project Day
