TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding is the process of welding using a tungsten electrode, filler metal rod and an electric arc to produce a weld. TIG welding is commonly used for stainless steel, aluminum and bronze, and specialty applications such as bike frames and roll cages because it produces a finer, stronger weld than other processes. It is more difficult to master than MIG welding, but the results are a higher quality, cleaner weld.
This workshop that takes place over the course of two 4.5 hour sessions will teach you how to use and understand the components of the TIG welding machine, how to set up a joint, finishing, and practice welding a variety of materials.
