Cutting Torch 101
This is the Authorization Class to use the oxy-fuel cutting torch.
We will spend some time going over safety and then move on to operation of a cutting torch. We will cut out some basic shapes as well as learn some other tricks you can use a torch for.
Students should wear natural fiber clothing (jeans, cotton shirts, etc) NO polyester, spandex or “tech” style clothes. Socks and shoes are required, NO sandals or open toes.
If you have own PPE- please bring safety glasses, leather gauntlets, shade 5 cutting goggles/glasses, and a welding shirt/jacket. *If you do not have this yourself do not worry! We will have gear for you to use!*
