TIG Welding w/ Ben
Tuesday, October 26, 2010 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
TIG is the welding method used for the most technical and demanding welding applications done, from aerospace to drag racers. Because of this it has a certain mystique and a reputation for being the last type of welding one should try to master. I personally don't think this way. TIG allows the learner to see exactly what is going on as a weld is executed, up close and without being showered in splatter. As such, this class is being offered to anyone willing to find out the hard way that 'metal gets hot when you weld it'.
Bring leather gloves and eye protection, and wear heavy-duty all natural fibers - in other words - jeans and a long sleeve shirt. And no open toed shoes - boots are ideal. Polyester and nylon will melt onto your skin if hot molten metal drops onto them and ouch that hurts. You will get very dirty.
The class is $50 with a $10 materials fee.
