Learn the basics of TIG welding and how to use an angle grinder. We will cover how to setup the machine, prepare tungsten, and cleaning metal with the angle grinder. After that we will get to welding, covering basic welds for a variety of joints and materials with and without filler. This is a hands on class to get you comfortable with welding and grinding and show you the basics of what you need to know to make a successful weld. The class is from 5-6 but I will be around from 6 till 8-9ish so feel free to practice and ask questions as needed. Please wear long sleeves (cotton or leather preferred), jeans without holes, and decent shoes/boots (leather preferred).
