TIG Aluminum and Steel Welding $260

This class is NOT FOR BEGINNERS. If you do not have at least 30 hours of welding your brain can't process the arc correctly and you will sit, whimpering listlessly, at the welding table. Which is ok, but it won't join aluminum, probably.

About the Event

No one can teach you this skill in a more accessible, entertaining, and useful way than we can.

Simply put, welding programs have an incentive to keep you inn class indefinately. We are providing a higher quality of focused instruction. We believe this is a better arrangement for our clientele. 

Class is limited to four persons.

 Until your brain learns to recognize an arc, you cannot "see" the arc well. TIG is much harder than mig. It is more technical and requires fine motor skills and patience. No one teaches TIG faster or better than we do. We will put you in front of both pulsed TIG and old school machines and show you everything you need to know. We will discuss and demonstrate the topic so thoroughly that your brain will grow a minimum of 2000 new dendrites. We will begin with steel and move you on to Aluminum far faster than is reasonable. TIG IS DIFFICULT. You need to show up rested, focused and prepared to be very patient. Your brain is going to understand it before your hands do. We offer this as a four hour class only because we have yet to work with a single client that can committ to TWO days without asking to reschedule at least one of them.

You should ABSOLUTELY plan on taking this class at LEAST TWICE or taking a private class as follow up. It is much more reasonable to expect that it will take you about 30 hours to become reasonably familiar with this process. We are going to equip you with a solid grasp of the fundamentals, but TIG TAKES TIME, and operating costs are HIGH. Think in terms of learing Guitar, or a musical instrument. 

In teaching several thousand people how to TIG weld we have decided that eight hours is the absolute dead minimum to get a useful understanding of this skill. By which we mean, somewhat refined and predictable results as opposed to "look it's kinda stuck together as far as I can tell, while squinting optimistically". 

This is a serious metalworking class for clients that have a reasonable amount of experience with welding equipment. 

You can bring your own TIG machine. If you are considering buying a TIG buy only Miller machines, off-brand tig machines are pretty fragile. 

We supply all required materials and consumables and equipment. 

Please bring a snack, you will probably want caffine. You can wear pretty much anything on your feet, but boots are always best. Sneakers are a poor choice for a shop environment as they are flammable, and to some extent, so are people.
