WLD104: Stick Welding (SMAW) SBU
Class Number 4-37009

Stick welding (shielded metal arc welding, or SMAW) is an electric welding procedure that uses consumable stick electrodes that act as the electrode, filler medium and shielding mechanism all in one.

In this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, you will learn the fundamental safety procedures accompanying arc welding as well as how to weld mild steel with commonly available electrodes. We will also cover the arc welder setup, weld preparation, electrode size/type selection, and post weld slag cleanup/removal.

For your safety, you must wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt in natural fibers in the Hot Shop, and remember to always wear closed-toed shoes at TechShop.
