Join us this Friday (1/13/2012) for an Introduction to Welding with shop member Gabe.
Gabe will cover a little of the history of welding, safety, different welding processes: Tig, Mig, Arc, and some key terms to each. He’ll go into details on the welder and welding processes we have in the shop: Mig and fluxcore (GNAW and FCAW).
Sample welds of various techniques, both good and bad, will be on-hand for comparison. He’ll have a short demo of welding of platesteel and maybe of sheet metal.
Note: This is not a welding class. Due to liability issues this is not a hands-on welding experience.

Free and Open to the Public.
Doors open at 7pm and the event will start shortly after that.
We’re at 1936 Fifth Avenue, in the garage around back on Watson.
Look for our flag over the garage door.
