This class is scheduled by reservation. Please purchase a reservation if you wish to attend.
We will sell tickets once we have eight reservations for the class. If we do not generate eight reservations, we will refund your reservation in full.
We must have a full class in order to schedule.
The class is limited to eight students and the small class size allows us to teach in an open format,
We will teach mig, tig, stick, plasma and oxy-fuel cutting, aluminum welding, tig brazing..... in short we will teach whatever subjects our clients are interested in a way which ties the subject matter together cohesively.
This class offers you an opportunity to learn how to weld and work with related tools and processes to make items in metal. This class offers both structured instruction and time for you to work on your own small projects.
The class begins with a five hour focus on MIG welding, this is very similar to the content of the MIG welding intensive, and offers an opportunity to expand on the information presnted in that class.
This $350 class is designed to make learning to weld as fast and easy as possible without spending the percentage of time on purely technical information that you would in a community college in a vocational welding program.
We teach welding in professional but relaxed way. We teach the way that you might learn from a friend or a family member, but when you have a technical question about metallugry, electrical safety, electrode analysis, Mig versus TIG, how to weld Aluminum, or how to select and purchase used equipment, we will have an answer based on 20 years of professional fabrication experiance. You probably won't even realize that we have carefully structured the class based on our experiances with over 6000 students.
Our goal is to teach you everything you need to know to weld competantly in a variety of circumstances without bogging down in technical details that industrial aerospace and underwater welders need to know.
The first two classes will be 60% hands on. We will cover the basics of MIG theory and practice as they pertain to GMAW and FCAW using systems ranging from 120 v at 90 amps to 208 three phase at 350 amps on mild steels.
You will learn basic metallurgy and material identification, how to troubleshoot and set-up a machine, and how to produce a weld capable of withstanding multiple blows from a five pound sledgehammer,and exceed tensile loads of 70,000 lbs per square inch.
The following three sessions will introduce important concepts and tools, but the format will allow you for even more hands on time.
Our studio is located four blocks from an industrial supplier that opens at nine a.m. on Saturdays. They supply steel and tools, and will happily cut, or shear stock to length.
We are offering this class specifically to help you develop your skills while working on your project. We will provide welding helmets and safety gear. Welding consumables and a limited amount of 16 guage materials are included in the price of the class.
As time allows, we will deomonstrate any subject the class shows interest in. This would reasonably include plasma cutting, grinding, fabrication, bandsaw and abrasive saws, bending, cold forming, shearing, punching, and finish work as well as answering any questions you have about welding and metal fabrication.
Think of this class as a blend of 30 hours of formal instruction and shop time.
Quite simply, we think this is the best possible way we can help you learn this versatile, exciting and incredibly creative process.
This class is being offered at an introductory rate.
Please check in with us as to the specifics of your project. Storage is very, very limited. This class is focused on work in steel, we will be offering some TIG welding instruction in THIS class. We reserve the right to charge an additional $20 per class for Tig welding gas and consumables as these are an expensive and highly variable cost.
