WKS333: Advanced TIG Welds - Steel
Class Number 1017-47303

After completing the TIG Safety and Basic Use class (SBU), you can practice specific joints and improve weld bead quality under guidance of an instructor.

In this class, we will discuss lap, butt, corner and fillet welds, and individual students will perform at their own rates. Emphasis will be placed on visual inspection of welds and heat zone theory, so that you will gain a better understanding of what a quality weld joint really looks like.

Bring in your steel welding project for practice or support, or an idea of what you hope to work on. Be ready to practice coupons if you do not have a project.

For your safety, you must wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt in natural fibers in the Hot Shop (no polyesters or poly blends), and remember to always wear closed-toed shoes at TechShop.

Prerequisite: You must successfully complete the TIG Welding SBU prior to taking this class. It is also important to have practiced your TIG skills prior to this class.

Note: For safety reasons, if it has been at least nine months since you took the TIG SBU and you have not used the machine since, you must re-take the TIG SBU, which is offered at half price if you successfully passed the first TIG SBU.

Anyone may re-take, at half price, any SBU at TechShop that they have previously taken and passed. Please sign up with the front desk in order to ensure this special rate.
