MIG TWO- Your second welding class
$220 10AM- This is a continuation from MIG ONE. The MIG classes are intended to be taken in order, i.e. 1,2,3. After taking the MIG 1,2, and 3 classes you will be ready for TIG (tungsten inert gas) classes 1,2,and 3. TIG is generally the preferred way to weld aluminum. TIG is waaay more difficult.

About the Event
Class runs from 10 AM-1 PM.
In this class we will build on what we learned in MIG one.
You will spend the bulk of class welding 16 guage hot rolled material. We will be welding in a variety of positions, vertical down, fillet, flat, lapp, and thin to thick, and showing you how each affects the process.
We will spend time showing you how to tune the components of the machine for optimal performance. This involves basic maintainence of the running gear, which is exactly what you need to know if you are using unfamiliar equipment or buying used equipment.
We will discuss the role of different electrode types and thicknesses, as well as introducing FCAW.
You will learn fundamental skills, how to change a tank of Argon Co2, swapping electrode sizes and how to choose between use of GMAW and FCAW processes.
We will demonstrate how to adjust the wire feed speed and voltage for different welding positions and problems. For example, welding overhead uses very different settings from welding in the flat and vertical positions.
As you gain skill and familiarity with the MIG process, the speed and steadiness of you hand will allow you to use a much broader range of material and heat inputs, we will show you how to make the most of your machine and your current skill level.
Our class size is small and class is structured so that there is plenty of time to ask questions.
You will have the option of learning to use a bench shear and h/v bandsaw if you choose. We teach all tools and processes in private instruction sessions.

- Miller XMT 350
- Linde v1253 300
- Millermatic 251
- Miller multimatic 215 (2)
- Esab 3 in 1 215
