MIG Welding 101
Intro to MIG welding.
This is the Basic startup class for using the MIG Welder in the Metal Shop.
We will spend about 30 minutes on basic safety and area requirements.
Expect an hour or so of hands on setup and shared MIG welding time (more if needed.)
*The class may run a bit short or long depending on students needs. *
Students should bring their own Welding Shield, gloves and other PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) if they have them.. but these are not required. The Metal Shop has all the required equipment for those who don’t have their own.
Please do NOT bring your own welding machines to use, the setup and testing time could impact other students.
The cost is $19.96 for Knox Makers members, $49.96 for the general public. There is a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 5 attendees. If the minimum has not been met 24 hours before class starts the class will be canceled and any tickets refunded.
Directions- Knox Makers parking and entrance is located around the back of the SPARK building in the fenced in area.
