Class Description:

So, now you know how to cut some steel and operate a welder, but how do you make stuff? This Metalworking Intensive will raise your fabrication skills to the next level. In this class, students will gain all of the skills necessary to start fabricating projects in steel by using round and square rod and flat plate. Students will learn how to perform basic mechanical drawing techniques, how to make templates for fabricating parts, and how to cut, fit and weld components to make a completed project. We will be building on your intro-level skills with the MIG Welder, hand file, angle grinder, bandsaw, cold saw, ironworker, and drill press.

The practical portion of this class will culminate in the demonstration of all of the skills gained in the class through the construction of a project that the students will take home with them. Students will build a charcoal BBQ grill, based on plans provided by the instructor. Students will be provided with a drawing tools kit and the steel stock to build the BBQ project as part of the class fee.
