This is only for the 4 week of metal boot camp, in this class we will discuss some intermediate MIG techniques and introduce, TIG and STICK welding. This is intended to build on what we teach in the MIG welding intensive and also demonstrate Stick and TIG welding on mild steel. Each type of welding has it’s strengths and weaknesses. Mig is a very easy to use process that is very fast, but it is difficult to produce very fine controlled welds and works poorly on some materials like Aluminum and bronze. Stick (SMAW) welding is very cheap, portable and versatile but works best on a heavy class of materials. Tig is extremely versatile, but a difficult process to master, it is the preferred method for welding aluminum. Knowing when and how to use each is an essential skill, and one that demonstrates competency.
