What's Included

Instructor: Levi Crumley This class is intended for beginner welders and those looking to brush up on rusty skills while building something fun and useful. The class will involve basic fabrication technique, using plasma cutters, mig welders, and grinders. Students will use these to cut parts, tack-weld into place, fully weld, and grind all corners smooth. Each student will make and take home a small grill. This class should take 3-4 hours, but students needing additional time are welcome to schedule another night if needed. No experience needed, please dress appropriately in natural-fiber clothing (cotton, denim, etc.) and wear close-toed shoes. Safety equipment will be provided. Completion of this class qualifies members to rent the welder/welding area in the future for other projects. After completing this class you will be able to walk up to any MIG welder in our shop and set it up to properly weld on your own. This class focuses on MIG welding carbon steel, the principles apply to other metals and alloys but may require additional instruction.
