MIG Welding for Fun!

July 10 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

$150

Everything needed for class is included in price
Our brand-new workshop is an excellent way for beginners to learn MIG welding.

We designed this two half-day “crash course” to give students the knowledge and confidence needed to start working with this fun metal joining process.

Our knowledgeable instructor is combining lecture with hands-on training in our modern facility.

All equipment is well-maintained, state-of-the art, and easy to operate.

Who should take this workshop: Hobbyists, automotive enthusiasts, general metal repair for DIY around the house/garage, and anyone looking to hone their welding skills/understanding of this process.
How can you use MIG: MIG stands for (Metal Inert Gas), or GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding) — this is an auto feed process. With the process being auto-fed, it makes the task that much easier to understand, and utilize. It’s similar to a hot glue gun, but with metal. The process is fairly inexpensive, and can be run off of your basic household outlets (120v). This process gives the ability to weld a range of different sized material, and compositions. ranging from thin sheet metal (20 gauge, all the way up to 1/4 inch) on Steel, Stainless Steel, and Aluminum. Making it perfect for anyone interested in doing their own DIY home repairs, auto body work, exhaust fabrication, metal art, and anything that involves ferrous, and non-ferrous metal. This process is the easiest to learn, making it perfect for anyone who’s never welded before.

No need to be intimidated if you have never welded before!
