TIG Welding 201
This is the advanced class for authorization on the TIG Welder and Plasma Cutter.
You MUST have completed Welding 101 (Intro to MIG) or already feel very comfortable welding before taking this class. This is not an intro to the metal shop, but the next step focusing on beginning TIG.
We will spend a few minutes refreshing basic safety and area requirements, then we will go over the plasma cutter. We’ll also learn how to set up the TIG machine and have shared welding time practicing technique.
Students are welcome bring their own PPE, shield and gloves if they have them, but this is NOT required- we have setups available to use
