Event description

Description

This class has two 3hr sessions running from 7:30 to 10:30PM Wednesday Dec 13th and 20th.

The TIG welder is a specialized metalworking tool which can be used for many precision welding applications. This welding process is most often used in Aluminum and other exotic metals but can also be used with Steel. In this class you will be trained on the basic safety, operation, and techniques of Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) or as it’s commonly referred Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding with additional training on our Horizontal Bandsaw, Bench Grinders, and Tubing Notcher. In our 2 3hr sessions we will cover setting up the machine, proper grounding, stock material preparations, personal protection equipment, and supervised hands on welding.

**Participants should wear long sleeves, jeans or heavy work pants, and close-toed shoes (boots preferred).**
