TIG : Tungsten Inert Gas Welding $300.

Once you have worked with MIG equipment, your brain will be much better at interpreting the arc and you will be familiar with fundamental welding concepts. This will make it substantially easier for you to learn TIG, which is more demanding and complex.

About the Event

Class runs from 10 am to 2 p.m. 

Tungsten inert gas is much more difficult and demanding than MIG (GMAW or FCAW) welding. In this four-hour class we learn how to operate TIG welding machines, ranging from hobbyist to light-industrial class machines.  

The class size is very small, not more than five people. You should plan on REPEATING THIS CLASS, possibly several times, if you want to learn how to weld aluminum. We are typically working with clients at very different skill levels which is not an obstacle because the class size is small. 

Welding is typically taught over the course of a year. We can teach you much more rapidly than that but you should still think in terms of committing at least ten hours to become familiar with the machines and generate a usefull skill level.

We can show you to weld aluminum, but you should know that tig welding aluminum is substantially more difficult than welding steel. 

We are going to chuck you in the deep end of the pool, but gently. 

We will perform fusion, butted, and flat welds. As always the class size is quite small and there will be plenty of time to answer questions. 

TIG equipment is more costly and has higher operating costs than MIG. 

Please dress warmly. 

Machines available: 

  • Miller Diversion 180
  • Esab Multiprocess 3 in 1
  • AHP alpha tig 200x
  • Lincoln 200 tig Square wave
  • Miller Synchrowave 300.


  • TIG contact to schedule.

    Hey, trying to learn TIG first simply does not work. Please don't sign up till you have at least five to ten hours with MIG or Stick welding. If your brain can't recognize an arc yet, this will be harder than it needs to be.
