WLD101: TIG Welding SBU
Class Number 3-29894
Welding is the process of fusing materials together.
In this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, you will learn how to use a basic TIG welding equipment setup to create a quality weld bead on mild steel under 1/8" thick. Alternately called gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) and heliarc, TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding can be used for a wide variety of different metals and can produce a very pure, precise and attractive weld with extensive practice.
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.
If it has been at least 9 months since you took this class and you have not used the machine since then, you must re-take the SBU, which is offered at half price if you successfully passed the first SBU. Anyone can re-take any SBU at TechShop that they have previously taken and passed for half price. Please sign up with the front desk in order to ensure this special price.
Passing this class is a requirement to use this equipment at TechShop
