-Intro to Oxy-Acetylene
Brief taste of oxy-acetylene welding and cutting, familiarize yourself with the tanks, practice your welds and cut metal with a torch. 3 hr workshop
Oxy-fuel is one of the oldest welding processes, though in recent years it has become less popular in industrial applications. However, it is still widely used for welding pipes and tubes, as well as repair work. It is also frequently well-suited, and favored, for fabricating some types of metal-based artwork.
-Intro to Stick
Learn the basics of Stick welding, how the machine works and practice your welds. 3 hr workshop One of the most common types of arc welding is shielded metal arc welding (SMAW); it is also known as manual metal arc welding (MMA) or stick welding. Electric current is used to strike an arc between the base material and consumable electrode rod, which is made of steel and is covered with a flux that protects the weld area from oxidation and contamination by producing carbon dioxide (CO2) gas during the welding process. The electrode core itself acts as filler material, making a separate filler unnecessary
-Intro to MIG
A quick overview of welding, practice your welds and learn how the machine works. 3 hr workshop
Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), also known as metal inert gas or MIG welding, is a semi-automatic or automatic process that uses a continuous wire feed as an electrode and an inert or semi-inert gas mixture to protect the weld from contamination. Since the electrode is continuous, welding speeds are greater for GMAW than for SMAW.
