Participants in this class will learn how to safely use arc welding assembly to expand their creative skills. They will learn the parts and operation of a flux core wire feed welder and its safe operation while getting hands-on practice. This class is designed for interested beginners. While previous experience with power tools and metalworking is not necessary, a familiarity with safe shop practices is helpful and these will be reviewed in class. By the end of the session, we hope participants develop a comfort generating lots of sparks, smoke and fire while also making quality welds.
