Intro to TIG Welding

Interested in the world of welding? Maybe you just bought a new welder for a home project and need a solid introduction to get up and running. Or maybe you’re just curious how welding works. This is a great way to get expert advice on welding techniques and best practices.

In a semi-private class (maximum of 4), students will learn basic tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding in this class. Students will create quality, precise weld beads on mild (thin) steel using this technique, which produces highly controllable welds on stainless, aluminum, and bronze and is often used on aesthetic welds of small to large projects.
